They forced shots of giadon on me when i refused medication and was acting perfectly calm. As well as this, they also were very adamant on forcing patients to take medication against their will.

Dr. Majd Alsamman, MD DEFINITELY is affiliated with this agency, (Charlotte Behavioral). He is TOO quick to diagnosis and prescribe, spending no more than 10 minutes with an in-patient. The night staff are not trained in sensitivity to individuals, in general, and for working with individuals who are experiencing either temporary or long-term mental health issues. They have an EXCELLENT R.N., Nurse Practitioner, and Intake personnel. Day/evening shift workers CARE and TRY!

I have been very depressed lately. I have had depression issues all my life. But never THIS severe. I sleep for days at a time. I miss appointments and functions because I am afraid someone will see me and stare at me. I contracted a MRSA infection in 8/2008 which left my face disfigured and riddled with scars. I had gone to the health department & they gave me a referall to come see your facility. I made an appointment & missed it because I forgot to log it in my planner. I also didn't recieve a reminder call about the appointment the night prior. Maybe you folks do not do that I imagine you are busy. I NEED TO BE SEEN BY SOMEONE PLEASE. I can't even make it through daily life functions right now. And the medication Dr Byrne at the health department prescribed is all gone. I am a nervous wreck...i have never felt so anxious. PLEASE HELP...is there any way to get an appointment

To little too late

To little too late
Details:

In Charlotte county we have a serious drug problem. With local government viewing drug addiction as simply a crime, rather than the phisical and mental discease that it is. People are begging for help and yet little is available in Charlotte County. The courts are sending our children to prison simply because they are mentaly ill!! There needs to be affordable resources available, according to Charlotte Behavioral Healthcare's web cite, they offer very little, basicly out patient services only, why is that? and how can we change this? I know that there are grants and resources that are available for agencies that can provide guidance in setting up addiquit drug treatment programs. Hillborough county for example has a good program called DACCO that uses a twelve step program, they provide in and out patient care, intensive counseling, drug testing,detoxification and more. This program helps people rebuild thier lives, think how our community could benifit from a program like this, how families could be saved, and how crime rates would go down!!!!!
