The O.C. alum, 31, posted a photo of a doll via Instagram on Sunday, January 29. The figure appears to be meditating, with crossed legs and wearing a green peace symbol headdress.

As previously reported, Barton was voluntarily hospitalized on Thursday, January 26, for mental evaluation after officers responded to a disturbance call. According to TMZ, her neighbors and a friend became concerned after she began to ramble and act incoherent.


On Monday, TMZ released a video of the incident. Barton was taped shouting in her backyard and falling off her fence onto the cement patio. "Oh, my God, it's over. I feel it. And it's angry!" Barton screams in the disturbing video. "Oh, my mother. I always knew it. You f–king witch! … We're dying. I knew it and I didn't want anybody to know. Oh, my God, it's terrifying."

The former Dancing With the Stars contestant, who was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold in 2009, was released from Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. on Friday. She told People magazine that someone slipped her a date-rape drug while she was celebrating her birthday with friends.

"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," she said in a statement. "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. 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."
