Mischa Barton went into psychiatric hold on July 15 and has recently left to return to work - but many friends are worried about her.
CW’s, The Beautiful Life, has producers confident that Barton can handle her workload even though friends are doubtful.
One source said, “Mischa needs more aggressive treatment over a long period of time. It’s only been a matter of days since she was released from the hospital, and I think she definitely wasn’t there long enough.”
Many friends are afraid that she will quickly fall into old habits. “She needs to be very cautious-she’s at a very big risk. I personally think it’s a bad idea to go back this quickly, given her past history with substance abuse.”
However, another source feels different and thinks it’s best for her to continue a normal life. “She’s obviously feeling better if she’s back to work. She’s excited to be a part of the show, and she’s very focused on it.”
Reports claim that before Mischa went to the hospital, she was on a three day drug binge leaving friends fearing for her life.
“She’s in very bad shape,” a different source told. “She’s running out of money and can’t find love, so now she is looking for a good time to escape her misery. She is on a downward spiral. She is a mess. She is a suicidal, uninsurable mess.”
