The PHF is not licensed as a detox facility nor can it be. In fact even writing detox protocols violates the PHF state license.
But that doesn't stop Emergency Rooms staff and law enforcement agencies from manipulating the system to force admission of inappropriate patients into the PHF by labeling them mentally ill when, in fact, the "mental illness" is crack/meth addiction, heroin/methadone/saboxone addiction or alcohol dependence/withdrawal.
These are medical issues and they need appropriate medical treatment.
The PHF is currently cutting down on expenses by replacing licensed staff with unlicensed staff. Your guess is as good as mine on what this will mean in the long term.

You cannot "walk away" from the PHF. It is a locked facility with a patio that has a 15 foot fence. Someone had to let her out.

How much does a child in America who is only gifted in a foreign language benefit when the sole use of that language is only helpful on the fringes of society?
