Comment: I was admitted after making a DCFS case. Right off the bat, workers were rude, although some were nice. I only saw a psychiatrist three times for about 10 minutes throughout my one week stay. Only saw a therapist once for about 15 minutes. My social worker was rude and made rude comments the entire way. They had written down false statements in my file to keep me there longer. I could not defend myself because I had said my DCFS case was false (it was true but I was pressured to change my story) the social worker had used that I could not be a reliable source so the judge decided to keep me there longer. Food was horrible, cold almost all the time. Given shots that I didn’t need without contacting my family first to verify.
Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): Inpatient
