Is there a group home for mentally ill people who dont want to take medication

Is there a group home for mentally ill people who don’t want to take their medication?

I don’t know, but that’s an interesting question. My idea is that if you found one you would be in for something that didn’t last.

I’ve been med free for about 6 months. Before those 2 months, I was med free for about a year.

I live in a group home for the mentally ill. No one can legally force you to take medication unless you are officially committed to a psychiatric hospital, so, they will tolerate a person going off their med’s here, but they take away privileges if you do. For instance, they might not give you your daily pack of cigarettes, or they might not let you take your weekly visit to town, etc. I’ve been off my med’s enough that I know I can’t make it without them.
