My 31yr old daughter had her first serious psychotic break last month, was hearing voices, self harming, irrational thinking. She was in a university teaching hospital for three weeks on a court ordered hold. Released, volunteerly commitment herself to a smaller community hospital within 24hrs. After evaluation, the hospital determined they did not have an appropriate program, contacted county mental health to put her back on a court order hold (she was refusing her meds and the voices/dislusions were back) and arrange to have her moved. Today I learned that she was moved to a private for profit facility which, looking at their website specializes in drug rehab. My calls today didn’t get past the operater - “can not confirm or deny that she is a patient”. Will be work on that some more tomorrow.
What I see happening is she will be stablized with meds then released at the end of the two weeks, just to repeat the process again. What type of a treatment program should I look for? How can I tell if this new facility is giving her appropriate treatment? I appreciate any advice on how to advocate on her behalf?
Note: she is in Seattle, Washington on state medicaid.
