Never go to a program in the mountains that do not allow a phone! Have a back up plan . Have a plan if there is an emergency and you need to speak to persons outside of program.
Be honest on paperwork and if you are coached into saying you have no mental health issues. A problem may rise and leaders will blow it off as if there is no concern for concern bc your are an adult. Yes, they act as if they don't know about it. They will say you are an adult so therefore.....!
He is Bipolar Schizophrenia and even paranoia . However, this was put out of staff leaders mind as a new rehab person wondered off into the unfamiliar mountain area without a phone , no money or coat. It was Cold rainy weather and he knew no one. All they could say is he is out of program and he is an adult. No concern for safety or if he made it home two states away.
