Debbie wrote: "My son John, a lifelong mentally ill man, obediently took the plea and ended up with 15 YEARS, with NO chance of parole! And, we’re not sure that he’ll even come home when his time is up, because the system is so corrupt that we fear they’ll put up infinite roadblocks. That’s one of the reasons he tried to kill himself – He sees no end in sight. 

John needs proper mental health care for his bipolar disorder. John was first diagnosed as having mental illness at age 3 while we lived in Delaware. John was a special ed student since age 9. He was admitted to Terry Children's Psychiatric Center because of his aggressive and disruptive behavior. Two years later, John was doing well at school and on weekend visits and was released. Outpatient therapy continued. He did well for a while, then had trouble. He was admitted to Marine Bay Institute. John was in and out of different psychiatric facilities and programs for most of his life. With the help of Rangle Hill Treatment Facility, John was finally stabilized on Lithium and was able to maintain himself without hospitalization for a period of four years. John was even able to be self-sufficient throughout those years. He worked with a lawn care service, and he worked in an entertainment venue at night. Unfortunately, John was falsely accused of a crime and was incarcerated. The charges were eventually dismissed. However, during John's incarceration for six months, he was deprived of his psychiatric medication. This completely destabilized John, and he has never recovered."

Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) programs restore many former inmates to wholesome lives.
