Amanda Bynes will remain in treatment for at least two more weeks, whether she likes it or not.

The troubled actress, who was also hospitalized last year on a 5150 mandatory psychiatric hold, was involuntarily committed to treatment on Friday when she arrived back in LA.

And now, her latest 5150 order has been extended for two more weeks, People reports, much to her parents' relief.

"They're happy she's safe and that Amanda is finally getting some help," a source says of Rick and Lynn Bynes.

Amanda's parents had been granted a temporary conservatorship over their daughter last year, but since that expired in September, she's been on a downward spiral.

The 28-year-old got a DUI in LA and was reportedly kicked out off her fashion school before she fled to NYC and was caught trying to shoplift. She even accused her dad of sexually abusing her in a series of Tweets which she later deleted.

According to TMZ, Amanda is very angry at her parents for forcing her back into treatment, but it's clear she needs professional help right now and we hope she recovers soon.
