Amanda Bynes has moved from a psychiatric hospital to a rehab center in Malibu and is "making great strides toward recovery," a family lawyer says.

The troubled actress, 27, departed UCLA Medical Center about three weeks ago for The Canyon, where she is on an extended psychiatric hold for being gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder.

"Amanda was stuck with people in much worse condition than her," her parents' attorney, Tamar Arminak, tells TMZ. "She was scared, afraid and did not leave her immediate room area."

At The Caynon, Arminak adds, "She is getting specialized psych care, one on one treatment, not drug rehab."

The Canyon, a rehab center famous for treating celebrities at its posh 120-acre site near the Malibu coastline, allows Bynes to walk around the grounds, see the ocean and ride horses, says the lawyer.
