Mischa Barton Offers Explanation About Her Recent Hospitalisation

Mischa Barton Offers Explanation About Her Recent Hospitalisation

Mischa Barton has offered an explanation about her behaviour on a few nights ago which saw her hospitalised for a mental evaluation.

The O.C. star has revealed to fans that someone gave her GHB (AKA the “date rape drug”) while drinking on Wednesday night.

“On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday,” she shared to People magazine. “While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours.”

“I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB. After an overnight stay, I am home and doing well,” the statement continued. “I would like to extend a big thanks of gratitude to the professionals at Cedars-Sinai for their great care and professionalism. This is a lesson to all young women out there, be aware of your surroundings.”

On Thursday afternoon police responded to a disturbance call from Barton’s neighbours. Upon arriving at her West Hollywood home the authorities found Barton looking distressed and was said to be “making incoherent statements that made absolutely no sense and she was transported to the hospital.”

Not long ago the actress spoke to People magazine about her terrifying mental breakdown in 2009 and her long road to recovery.  “It was terrifying,” she said. “Straight out of Girl, Interrupted. Story of my life. I was deeply hurt at first, and then I accepted this was time I needed to be away from my family and all the pressure. I had been through the wringer.”

It’s great to see Barton getting the help she needs and we wish her a quick road to recovery.
