Mischa Barton Held Under Psychiatric Hold

It was reported earlier today that Mischa Barton was removed from her home on Wednesday afternoon (July 15).

Access Hollywood is now reporting that the 23-year-old actress was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold and transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday evening. According to Wiki, someone can be held involuntary if s/he us deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him or her self, and/or others and/or gravely disabled. Britney Spears was held involuntarily twice in Los Angeles in January 2008.

Get well soon, Mischa!

    Wasn’t this the same D-Lister that had a conversation about an actor with her family posted over the net in blind comments scoring drugs for info–she needs help.

    Kids, don’t do drugs. That’s what happens when you play with your brain.

    Poor Mischa. Not really a fan, but I wish her well. Looks as if it has been a long time coming with certain reports about her over the years.

    Yikes, she looks terrible.
    Clearly she’s got some problems, hopes she gets some help and gets well soon.

    To Sally (#23) what exactly is cruel or mean about our statements here….
    Hollywood is a very shallow place and if your existence as a starlet is just party going and fashion..in La La land that is a shallow existence. And sadly she is not the first actress or actor to have a mental breakdown ..the culprit is the empty world of showbiz.

    its no coincidence that often you read about young stars over indulging in drugs, drinking and there comes a breaking point to that sort of living.

    I bet Mischa was taking a benzodiazepine like xanax, klonopin, valium, or ativan and is having tolerance withdrawal. These drugs are prescribed like candy when they should not be prescribed for over 2 weeks. People can get physically dependent quickly, some in as little as one week on the drug. This can happen without abusing the drug, it is simply a physiological adaption to the drug. People that take the drug a few times a week often complain of weird symptoms called inter-dose withdrawal, unfortunately if they are on a low dose they may not attribute their symptoms to the drug and even more unfortunate is that many doctors are not astute to the sighs of of drug tolerance from low dose or occasional use. These are really uncomfortable physical symptoms, sometimes it can make you feel like you are going to pass out, dizziness, heart palpitations, severe agitation and other symptoms.
