Human Guinea Pigs

Another psychiatrist in the saga is Denis Lazure, president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association in 1966.

From 1999 to 2001, Lazure headed the "Support Committee for Justice for the Duplessis Orphans" ? an effort that, according to Rod Vienneau, betrayed those it pretended to help. Vienneau compared Lazure's position on the committee to "a fox in the chicken coop."

In his memoirs, Medecin et Citoyen, published in 2002, Lazure wrote that in 1952, while interning at Hospice St. Jean de Dieu, a massive psychiatric facility in Montreal since renamed Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine Hospital, he and five other interns regularly administered electroshock and routinely put patients into insulin comas.4

Lazure breezily described how he would "start the day pushing the button on the electrical box that sends a current to provoke an epileptic-type convulsion in tens of patients who hadn't received any preparatory medication."5

Then he was off to the insulin coma rooms, "half-lit, vile-smelling, with two dozen patients that we'd inject with doses of insulin strong enough to induce a coma. After several hours of excessive sedation, they'd receive a glucose injection, which usually brought them back to consciousness. It sometimes happened that we got the shock of a patient that failed to reawaken."

ever since my stay at Fair oaks Psych i have had flashback and nightmare of this 1 memory from fair oaks:
I remember waking up on a stretcher with an iv and the horrible smell and i could hardly breathe after catching my breath i screamed and cried what is this in me take it out and screamed then a (I assume doc) comes to me and tells me to shut up and if i don't he will pull my fingernails out 1 by 1

has anyone has had a memory like this? or i have really lost my mind I'm so confused

I was in both of the Daytop facilities that you mentioned. Were they as dissimilar in your time there as they were later?

Not sure what you mean? but i would answer yes the evaluation unit in far rockaway was much pleasant but millbrook was a nightmare

ok my 1st psych stay was at 11 yrs old at fair oaks where i was kept for a yr then transferred to trenton state hospital and from there i was sent to daytop
i don't think i obtained a lvl was in evaluation unit in far rockaway for 2 weeks then sent to millbrook ny adolescent unit i was there for about 3 weeks before 1st marathon(and last) thank God!
and as for your 3rd Question i have no idea at 1 point i was ward of the state in fact it was my DYFS worker that took me to daytop and in fact My mother was one of my abusers :(
and you are right its good i got out cause after myt experience of abuse at fair oaks and Trenton state psychiatric hospital adolescent unit i had no trust in any authority and found my way on my own through the years am now 43 and in good therapy with a wonderful Psychiatrist and am doing well. But only began repairing the damage done 4 yrs ago

BTW TY for your input :)

oh and yes they did call my mother and notify her but not medical instructions in fact my mother wouldn't take me to a doctor so i ended up taking all 400+ stitches myself unfortunately 1 yr later i had to have my arm reopened to remove  a stitch i missed and got infected

Just joined the site and been searching for ways to get some kind of justice I could not speak to my mother about this she didn't care and now she is dead so can't get any info there

Daytop Village / Daytop almost killed me

I rarely write on message boards but i can't rest and need to make this post about my Daytop experience:

I was sent to daytop from a psychiatric institution i suffered depression all my life and did use drugs as a teen.
but when at daytop my depression went out of control when i was sent in for my 1st marathon group.
now i don't want to get too personal but i also endured severe child abuse since as far as i can remember.
the marathon they basically tried to rip me apart emotionally pressured me to talk of this abuse in a group of about 12
I didn't make it to the end of the marathon i became very distressed and was let out to see the only trained staff they had who was a social worker where she sat me in her office and told me they were sending me back to the psych hospital and that i would be in  an institution for the rest of my life.
after this i proceeded to put an end to my life and locked myself in the bathroom and attempted suicide by cutting my wrists. i loss a lot of blood and nearly died i cut my self so bad that i had to be put into surgery to get sewn back together and a blood transfusion. enough graphics and my point of this message was there response.
the next day after surgery i was visited by 2 daytop staff and signed out of ICU and taken and dropped on my mothers doorstep. I was only 16 and didn't care was glad to be home but years later i still am traumatized by this.
why did they not help me? why drop me off on my mothers doorstep?
I can only see 1 answer COVERUP!

hello dear friends i was at fair oaks around 1979 was there for a full yr and left(was transferred to trenton psych hospital) the day my insurance ran out.
I still have nightmares of my experiance there. i was wondering does anyone remember me i was 11 yrs old the youngest patient at the time and kind of became there mascot the 1st half of the yr i spent there was spent either in seclusion or restraints. my name is Pam btw
but my question here is does anyone remember mark ( he was a staff member)in the adolescent unit that played guitar. also if anyone knew the nurse Nancy king I wonder where they are now and wish i could tell them how much they helped me.
If you remember me or those staff members please respond.
