The spokesperson went on to say Barton, 23, is "still seeking treatment" for an undisclosed medical condition.

Barton is scheduled to return to work on the new CW series "The Beautiful Life" later this month, according to the network.

Last week, Los Angeles police placed the former "The OC" actress on a 5150 hold after being summoned to her Hollywood Hills home.

Neither police, nor Barton's spokesperson will comment on the exact nature of her illness.
