Facility Discussion

  1. Addict

    My adult daughter was in treatment for addiction issues and PTSD at the Life Healing Center in January, 2011. While there she was taken twice to St. Vincent’s Hospital for evaluation and treatment, once by ambulance. Director Mary Young told me much later that my daughter was “paranoid and delusional.” She was administered two anti-psychotic drugs at the hospital, and continued one of the drugs upon her return to the LHC, administered by staff there. She quickly developed a toxic reaction to the drug resulting in headaches, physical tremors, loss of vision, and mental confusion. She was then released, alone, without LHC’s notifying anyone, to travel by cab, 65 miles to the emergency room at University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque. She spent two days in UNM’s emergency room and another five days as an in-patient trying to negate the toxic effects of the drugs administered by LHC. My daughter was only released when her father and I agreed to travel from Texas and accept responsibility for her care and follow up treatment. I am shocked that LHC would release a person alone who had less than a week earlier been placed in the acute psychiatric unit of the Santa Fe hospital. The manner of her release by LHC indicates callous incompetence. I would strongly recommend that no one send any family member to the Life Healing Center.

    I am sorry to hear there are people who did not benefit from the Life Healing Center. I personally took my friend there and the transformation is amazing. I watched my friend struggle for years with her addictions. She tried doing it on her own and in other facilities but the wounds were too deep. Night after night I would go to her house because we knew she needed help but did not know were to go. We called many treatment centers in our area but no one could treat both the PTSD and the Alcoholism at the same time, which is what she needed. Some how we found the Life Healing Center and we called them. After talking with them, we realized that was the perfect place for her. My friend was hanging onto her life by a thread, until she finished her stay at the Life Healing Center. Her treatment took a lot of reflection into the past, which anyone suffering from trauma knows it is hard to look back, and it also took a lot of tears. By no means was her treatment easy but it was life saving.
