Amanda Bynes will likely be home by Christmas, according to TMZ.

Sources connected with her treatment told the website that medication and psychological counseling have stabilized Bynes' condition, and doctors are considering letting her leave the Malibu rehab facility where she's been since September.

After months of erratic behavior, Bynes was committed to a psych ward last summer after lighting a fire on a stranger's driveway in Southern California. She was moved from the psychiatric ward at UCLA into the rehab facility because the psych ward was freaking her out and preventing her from improving, according to the website.

The plan is for doctors to release Bynes some time next month to the care of her mother, who will take her to the family home and provide supervision.

It might be a good idea to lock up the matches.

Sources reportedly told TMZ the meds and therapy appear to be working, though the big concern now is whether the former actress is going stir crazy. She is not allowed outside because of lingering paparazzi, which staff are concerned will photograph the other patients.

TMZ's calls to Bynes' parents' attorney, Tamar Arminak, were not returned.
