UPDATED: The 27-year-old actress is continuing her recovery at her parents' Los Angeles-area home and looking at colleges, according to a statement released by her mother's attorney.

Amanda Bynes has left the rehab facility she entered after she set a small fire outside a home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., this summer and is continuing her recovery at her parents' home in the Los Angeles area, her mother's attorney said in a statement obtained by People.

The 27-year-old actress has completed her inpatient treatment and is "feeling better every day," lawyer Tamar Arminak said in a statement.

"Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery," Arminak added, according to the statement. "Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."

Arminak told The Hollywood Reporter that Bynes is undergoing outpatient therapy several times a week.

For now, Bynes' mother, Lynn, will remain in control of her well-being and finances, People reported, as part of the temporary conservatorship a judge granted in August, but the former child star is already focused on her future.

"She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design," Arminak wrote. "She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."

Prior to entering rehab, Bynes made headlines for her bizarre behavior, including a May arrest for reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.

Bynes also picked a number of fights on Twitter, railing against stars, the media and the police and expressing her desire to alter her physical appearance.
