Actress Mischa Barton has left a Los Angeles hospital after being placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold, according to reports.
The former 'OC' star was being treated for an undisclosed medical condition after entering hospital on July 15 when police took her from her home.
However, her spokesman, Craig Schneider, said Barton was "out of the hospital and continuing to improve in anticipation of resuming production" of a new US TV show.
The actress is due to start filming for her new role as drug taking model in 'The Beautiful Life'.
Barton's personal life has received much media coverage over the last six months, documenting her fluctuating weight and her presence on the party scene.
In December 2007, she was arrested and later pleaded guilty to drinking and driving.
The actress initially shot to fame playing Marissa Cooper, in the popular teen drama 'The OC'.
