My mother's rights have been violated. The doctor in charge of her medications has changed them numerous times for unknown reasons. MHS had her on a regiment that was working well. The doctor of Project Access (PA) proceeded to change my mother's meds by drastically cutting them. This caused her to fall into a suicidal depression in which she attempted suicide.She was then admitted to St. Luke's Hospital. The doctors here stated that cutting the meds so drastically by the PA doc caused this suicidal depression. My mother has never been the type of person to harm herself. She was transferred to Aurora South Shore an an inpatient. The doctors at South Shore restated the reason for her suicide attempt was from the drastic cut of her meds by the PA doctor.Aurora South Shore got my mother on a good med regiment that had her stable. My mother stayed stable for about 7 weeks. Once again, the PA doc cut her meds when placed back into their outpatient care.Then there are things that the social workers from PA have not done. They were just dispensing my mother's meds to her on a daily basis and leaving her with enough for the weekend. There was no monitoring during this time. Their job also included to sit and talk with my mom at least twice a week to discuss needs and any barriers my mom was having. This was never done throughout my mother's whole time being in the PA program. The social workers would drop off her meds & simply leave. They would not listen to any problems she was having. She told them for weeks that she could not sleep. The doctor then cut her sleeping meds.My mother is forced to be in an outpatient program due to her 9 month stipulation with MHS. I am in the process of reporting this agency & getting my mother involved in a different outpatient program. I have also reported that my mother's rights have been violated to the Wisconsin Disabilities Rights Agency.I do not recommend this agency to anyone and give them Zero Stars.

When my brother went missing on Thanksgiving 2015 and the staff did everything they could to help find him. I really appreciate all the support - We need more agencies like Project Access to help persons with mental health issues. Thank you everyone!
I would give 0 stars if possible! My family also has been through it with this agency and it has been nothing but lies! They don't follow through with anything! This agency left my family member HOMELESS due to their lack of.... Everything is all I can say! Horrible people. I don't know how these people got where they are. It takes a special team to do the job efficiently.... and all the team members of this agency are nothing short of lazy, while realizing that people's lives, treatments and they truly DON'T CARE. I was told to Google contact info I needed as well, instead of helping my family member transition. If you want support, you're not going to get it here. Horrible job! Especially Sarah and Becky.. and their lazy supervisor. UNACCEPTABLE.
They are a horrible agency that doesn't know what they are doing!! Full of empty promises that is dangerous to the people they serve! We reported them to the State. The most incompetent agency I have ever worked with. Getting them to return a phone call or doing any kind of follow thru is nearly impossible.
They barely answer there phone they over book therapist and psychiatrist very unprofessional
Renew Counseling is a terrible place that does not take drug addiction / abuse seriously. I reported to them that one of their patients was abusing their prescription on a monthly basis to the point that they have O.D.'d several times and the police had to be called on several occasions as well as the patient being admitted to the ER numerous times due to reactions from ABUSING the prescribed medications. I also reported how the patient was coached by other drug addicts how to make it look as if they were suffering from PTSD in order to get the medication they want prescribed to them. They were informed how their patient was trading their medication for illegal street drugs and that the patient is passing their drug test by submitting something other then urine and it is going undetected by their staff. I understand they say a patient needs to be weaned off of certain drugs, but the patient is taking their entire months supply of medication within the first week or two of receiving it. Then when the patient is out of their prescribed med, they turn to illegal street drugs to fill in the remainder of the time until their next refill. After this was reported to Renew Counseling, they still prescribed the patient another months supply and simply suggested that the patient seek drug counseling elsewhere, but did not make it mandatory to do so. The name of their clinic is Renew "COUNSELING". I would have assumed that listing "COUNSELING" in the name of their clinic, that they would provide their own counseling services. I also reported this patient to the pharmacies and they too told me they had reported their suspicions to the patient's doctor at Renew Counseling, but their concern for the patient also went ignored. I am afraid that the next time I see my friend will be at their funeral. How can I get my friend the help they need when their doctor won't take this matter seriously? Who else can I report this issue to to possibly save my friend's life? Please help.
