‘The Centers’ is a ‘top 10 employer’ in Marion County and being such an entity is very important to the tax revenue streams that feed the Marion County Court system, pay the salaries of Marion County judges and also police.Many people don’t know that although ‘The Centers’ is chartered as a 501c3 non-profit organization, the vast majority of ‘The Centers’ revenue comes directly from the State and Federal governments. Per the footnotes of the public audited financial statements the sources of revenues are detailed for ‘The Centers’. Fully 60% of ‘The Centers’ revenue comes from the State of Florida (32% from the Dept of Children & Families and 28% from ‘Kids Central’ which is a pass-through from the DCF). Another 29% of the revenue comes from the Federal Medicare and Medicaid programs. The last 11% of revenue comes from private sources, most likely mainly health insurance. So ‘The Centers’ is almost wholly dependent on government for revenue and is also ONLY accountable to government for its actions. ‘The Centers’, if it were a private enterprise, would have closed it’s doors a long time ago due to the many dissatisfied customers. But through the Communist ‘Baker act’ and forced drugging and causing their patients (victims) to become addicted to psychotropic drugs, ‘The Centers’ keeps it’s clientele base intact. At Auschwitz the motto was. “Work will set you free”. At ‘The Centers’ it is “DRUGS will set you free”. Their policy is forced psychotropic drugging. In effect ‘The Centers’ in Marion County is State of Florida sponsored drug-dealing. It’s very hypocritical that law enforcement will hammer any Marion County resident very readily for a very minor drug offense or even being slightly impaired while driving (neither of which I ever do), yet they will forcibly deliver innocent people to the clutches of the most vicious drug dealer in Marion County, namely ‘The Centers’. I should also add that there are many employees at ‘The Centers’ who seem to have an agenda of ‘getting back at cracker/whitey. These anti-white people are viciously racist. Back in a much earlier time in Florida, they used to be able to jail people for ‘vagrancy’, now they can ‘Baker Act’ anyone for virtually any reason, including just being home with a common flu. Anyone thinking of retiring in Florida should take into consideration the large profit orientated medical system and it’s adjoining court system.
Really deserves a "0" but that wasn't an option. Called to see if they could refill one of my daughter's meds (not a controlled substance) since she only has 2 days left and her appt wasn't for 5 days. I was told by a Hannah in the call center that they would not under any circumstance fill a med, even if partial, until seen by a Dr. (she was just seen there last month). When I mentioned that going off of a psych med could cause problems I was told that when she runs out, of it is a problem then I will have to take her to crisis! Why in the world would anyone suggest messing with a child's meds to the point that they need crisis???? We called and spoke with a supervisor finally (after being hung up on 3 times) who said she would take care of it and try and get a few days worth sent over. She finally called back and said there is an available appt tomorrow and if you can't make it we still won't call in a few to hold her over. Needless to say all appts are canceled and we have an appt with another dr elsewhere. (Thankfully we found a few pills from a former prescription that we can use until)
The 'Centers' is a horrendous facility. The people who work there are extremely abusive. It's quite obvious that there must be some type of beneficial financial arrangement between the Court system, the Marion county government and the 'Centers', because it's impossible that all the abuses that go on at the "Centers" escape the scrutiny of the Marion County Judges, MCSO and the Marion County government. In effect, the "Centers" is a state-sponsored drug-dealing organization. Do not believe their advertisement about providing 'Hope'. Their goal is to get as many clients as possible addicted to their drugs. The sale of pharmaceutical drugs is what enriches the management of the 'Centers'. The pharmaceutical drugs are not only harmful and habit forming, they are also so toxic that they will cause rapid weight gain. It's a little known medical fact that the body uses fats to trap toxins that could harm vital organs. Often this weight gain could also contribute to depression in addition to the unhealthy side-effects of weight-gain. I should also add that most of the personnel employed at the 'Centers' are of low intelligence and totally lacking in empathy for the patients at the 'Centers'.
Another criminal drug dealing organization destroying the community. Psychology is the biggest fraud in existence. They make their money off of drugs and push drugs on people under the guise of "professional judgement" with absolutely no empirical data to support their diagnoses. The psych Drugs are in Fact harmful. Time for people wake up. The Vines and the Centers are in effect more criminal than the Mexican drug cartels. But I assume they bring money into the community so the overseers of law look the other way. But the NET effect is that their harmful psych drugs COST the community. The people that run the "Centers" are in act Criminals in every sense of word. It has long been known that certain nutrition can reverse psychological problems, There is NO money in using Nature, but there is immense profit in harmful and abusive psych drugs. This organization needs to be shut down. For those that are abused Google "psych abuse in Florida citizens committee"
If you have good insurance, do NOT go here. Even if you do not have any serious mental condition, they will do everything in their power to make you do inpatient care. If someone "highly recommends" you do something, they are not giving you a choice. If you refuse and express your desire for alternative treatment, they will force you. The adult unit is nothing but a holding center for bodies. You spend most of your time in the day room and then there is "quiet time," where everyone goes to their rooms for 2 hours during the day and must be quiet. There are no therapy classes, unless playing Hangman is to be considered "prioritized care focused on the individual needs of the client." The only time you see a medical professional is in the morning and that's to see if you need to be held at the facility longer and to prescribe you drugs. Nurses stay behind the glass and never talk to you. I now have difficulty trusting medical professionals, especially in mental health because of how I was treated at the Centers. Prisoners have more freedom than a "voluntary" patient here.
