.

Brad Discouraged interaction with my family. He kept telling me that my court committal was at least 180 days (not "up to" as the form read), though I was released a month early when funds ran out. I was offered the chance to stay. He told me I could stay: stay here with us. The whole experience was surreal. I lost all hope when I was told in my first few days that regardless of my behavior I would be there for the full commitment period. If I was required to stay there for the full time, why did I get to go home when the funds ran out and I wouldn't sign on to stay longer? He treated me in a degrading way overall. If he was my advocate then why did he sit by as staff routinely threatened me with state hospitalization for not participating in the program? I told them I wanted to go to the state hospital one time after they kept saying it and they said that was their decision to make. Having that threat over me was illegal. Threat of state hospitalization to solicit good behavior is a crime. Why release someone who says when asked what the first thing they're going to do when they get out is kill both their parents (at the time of my release)? I slept through most of my stay. When I was up I saw a sad state of stagnation. Staff reported I took more medications than I did. Where did those drugs go? Also, thanks for the false hope so I would attend groups that I might get out in time to spend my birthday with my family. Nothing has been the same since this advocate. I spent months screaming and breaking things once I was out of there. I don't care about life anymore. Brad would say again and again "I'm here to advocate for you". Attending BINGO and stupid games is hardly a program. Play BINGO or it's the state hospital, a place which was made to sound bad. I am somewhat certain it is. The whole place was messed up and anyone who could work in a building such as the Heeran Center and not see that it was integrally flawed is not fit to help anyone. I did not like the pet name he called me on a camping trip. I did not like the way he treated me like his pet. That place screwed me up. I am aware this whole review makes me sound awful. I asked to change counselors to no avail despite the other counselor saying he was willing to explore that option. He had someone else to help and myself and other patients agreed "it sucks" that I "got Brad as counselor". Don't make threats you won't live up to. If I held myself to that standard my parents and I would be dead. Being forced to take drugs and given a month's supply with no follow-up seems unprofessional. My freedom supposedly hinged on having a place to go. They bought me a bus ticket because as I was told they didn't want me to become another transient in Eugene. I walked out and got in my grandparents car. I was able to stay with them for awhile until my grandpa said I couldn't be there if I wasn't on my medications. I hadn't done anything. He told me he'd have to go get me the shot... I don't think there are Lithium shots. My life has gone downhill since this place and a lot of people have been hurt. Since I took Lithium and didn't particularly eat anything I throw up constantly these days. My blood levels weren't taken as they legally should have been. I told them I didn't want blood draws. Guess that one's on me. It's been over six years and I am angry. I often reflect that it would have been more prudent to have killed myself.
