I spent 2 months the first time was my max stay

Would’ve been better after a month being discharged

Sometimes you’re not ready for treatment they just should stabilize you if you’re not committed to recovery. I clearly wasn’t in 2010.

They placed me on a very low dose of Risperdal, 1mg so I would get destabilized and return to the psych hospital.
And that’s what happened.

They kept me longer than necessary because I had good insurance.

Fukkk them!

I stabilize pretty quickly I think my longest stay was 10 days but I fee like they should keep me longer than they do because I wind up back there within months
