Mischa Barton says she was DRUGGED at birthday party which led to her semi-naked screaming meltdown

Actress Mischa Barton has said recent meltdown was triggered as she was drugged while celebrating her 31st birthday with friends.

The former O.C star, who was found by paramedics semi-naked screaming her mother was a witch on Thursday, said she was unknowingly fed a date rape drug while partying with friends.

Ina statement, Misha said: "On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. 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."

Sgt. Enrique Manduga of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed the hospitalisation on Friday after deputies and emergency responders found Barton at a West Hollywood apartment following a report of a woman yelling at about 7 a.m. Thursday.

Mischa cooperated with the emergency responders and was voluntarily taken to hospital for an evaluation.

It isn't the first time the child star has been hospitalised, Mischa was placed under psychiatric care in 2009 after threatening to kill herself, and though she was never actually suicidal, she admitted she felt very "depressed" and was struggling to cope with life.

She previously said: "It was a full-on breakdown. It was terrifying. I was never suicidal, I was just overworked and depressed. But one slip of the tongue in a heightened moment and you find yourself in that situation."

Although she was late to claim an argument with a dental nurse led to her psych hold.

She was arrested in late 2007 on suspicion of drunken driving and later pleaded no contest to driving under the influence and driving without a valid license.

She was sentenced to three years of probation and alcohol treatment and completed the case without incident.

London-born Mischa has a troubled and rocky relationship with her mother and former manager Nuala - suing her for fraud.

And last year she accused her of holding up $7million Beverly Hills mansion they co-own so Nuala could allegedly use the property to secure loans.

Mischa said her mother used the Tuscan-style villa as her "personal ATM". The case was later dismissed.
