I have referred to my time spent at this facility as similar to a horror movie in a mental ward. I was threatened with violence, false reports, and drugs, if i did not agree to their theories, treatment, and definition of civil rights. If you need or want drugs this is the place for you. Otherwise never ever go near this facility. The treatment is degradation, intimidation, manipulation,and extortion. They prey on the weak and powerless. I was denied every civil right listed anywhere. Stripsearched & loss of all personal property including glasses. I could have stuffed my eyeglasses up my assper in case I needed them during my stay. Right. LOL I went to talk about an abusive marriage and was locked up for an ""incinuation."" (Somebody falsly interpreted something as I said as threatening) Do not say anything to these people. I made no threat of any kind. There is no law governing what they say...they interpret it to mean any sick thing they want to say. You do not have any rights at all. You have much more rights at the city jail. I cannot describe the sickness I felt here for the ladies in my ward. What a pathetic excuse for treatment of the emotionally disturbed. But it is pretty easy to rip off medicaid and even insurance companies. The so-called group therapy was a joke. Ive had deeper conversations at the lunch table on a construction job. No one could ever answer questions. Higher paid employees seemed to be narccistic while lower ranking employees tended to be much more humane. I was repeatedly scolded for asking for my glasses. (From the more elite staff members, of course.) They never quit putting papers in front of me & demanding I read, sign, or otherwise participate without the ability to read. They seemed angry about everything, especially that I would not take thier drugs. There was nothing ethical about this place in my book. Liars & theives with the power to drug you beyond recognition is my take on it. It scared me beyond anything I have personally had to deal with and thats been alot of stuff. Only in communist Russia or China...no, right here in the good old USA. And yes to all that the other ladies said. no answers, no proper records, no judge,Hippa violations, They seem to set the patients up to return. More of the same drug...forced back to the abuser...pimp...same household where sexual abuse occured etc. Attempts to talk about these issues were thwarted. #1 RULE: Just do & say what they tell you to and dont ask questions.(followed by threats of extended stay or injection of drugs) EXTORTION. Fraudulant reports to my insurance company. Slander. Defamation.
