Putting responsibility on kids for others behaviors, being cooped up in the house with no outside time (outside time was a privilege), no options for treatment, no recreation time, no benefits, no outlets, etc. This was the worst 3 months of my life. YouthCare was an incredibly disorienting rehab facility. Kids with ranges of problems from eating disorders to aggressive suicidal behavior to cutting were here but the techs couldn't cater to everyone. I was a very mild case...suffering from anxiety and depression, and I consistently felt in danger and like it was my fault if someone cut themselves or went AWOL. If any of the other patients behaved badly (even if you behaved well) there was a threat of a "safety" which is when you stay in a room for 12-72 hours...all of your meals are brought to your desk and you have to do writing exercises. None of this is your fault, they expect you to take on everyone else's behavior. It was a privilege to go outside and the first 2 weeks I was there I couldn't go outside, I had to submit an inquiry for it. The rules were strict, groups were incredibly terrifying... The techs were awful, some were down right terrible and made me feel like I was being emotional... I never felt ok. The doctors didn't listen to you. They wouldn't let you talk to your parents for weeks. It was a privilege to talk to them. The therapists didn't have you in mind when they were helping you, they just wanted to get the job done. I had anxiety before but my anxiety became 10x worse because of this experience...I felt like I was in a coffin given food and water every other day. I know that sounds like a huge exaggeration but I just recently recovered from the experience. I went when I was 16 and now I'm 24. I'm not sure if the facility is closed or has gotten any bad press I haven't checked but this place should be SHUT DOWN! Please investigate.
