Redmond O'Neal is halfway home.

After pleading no contest last week to heroin possession and receiving three years' probation, the trouble-prone son of Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett was released from Los Angeles County Jail today and immediately entered a lockdown residential rehab facility, where he will spend the next year.

"He is doing very well," the younger O'Neal's attorney, Richard Pintal, tells E! News. "He is grateful to everyone who is assisting him in his treatment and recovery."

O'Neal, 24, was busted in April for packing heroin while visiting a buddy at a Southern California lockup.

After reviewing his plea deal with prosecutors in court yesterday, Drug Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey gave the OK for the flame-haired Hollywood spawn to enter a Pasadena treatment center.

A typical day will include both individual and group therapy sessions and house chores. Visitation is allowed but not encouraged, at least in the first few months.

O'Neal is due in court for a progress report next Wednesday.
