Daytop in NY
« on: July 02, 2006, 10:33:00 PM »
What is this place like?  I refer to the TC?  Someone I know is considering going, but I heard scary things from someone else I met who went there about 10 years ago?

Anyone know of really helpful TC for adults who are bipolar- early onset??

thanks, kat

TC's such as Daytop are not suitable for anyone that is bi-polar. I'd suggest having your friend consult with a mental health professional for a proper referral.

Have him try someone else for a referral. Large (240) bed tc's are no place for someone that is bi polar.

This is a completely improper referral.  Daytop treats drug addiction - that's it.  Daytop is no place for someone who is bi-polar.

Kat, both of these places are totally inappropriate for someone suffering from BPD.  They are both hard-core in-your-face coercive drug rehab RTC's.  Neither one of these facilities should even be in the discussion.

Do not let him/her be sent to Daytop. Especially Fox Run/ADU in Rhinebeck. They'll get really f*cked up. I worked there.

F*ck Daytop

Sorry to be Helena come lately, but Daytop in Florida BECAME Phoenix House sometime back in the late 90's.  I actually knew someone who spent time in Daytop NY as well as FL.  

This person was a hardcore alcoholic, but Daytop didn't do much.  Quit the drinking for a while, but  didn't have much of a personality left over.  Throughout the years, this person ran from program to program, diagnosed with everything from ADD to an eating disorder.

Turns out my old pal is addicted to programs!  :lol:

Generally speaking, Daytop treats all residents the same, and that is quite roughly.  The counselors are not trained in psychology, nor do they even claim to be.  A bi-polar person could possibly suffer from a psycholoigcal break in Daytop.  It could just be too much for them.  One way or another, it'll only worsen the person.  

just my opinion,
Paul St. John


PS  I know that I am right. :D   I would strongly warn your frioen against it.

Phoenix House and Daytop Village are both dumps.  Their Counselors have more issues than the clients.  Their Counselors are still criminals and selling drugs themselves.  They have one Counselor sell drugs out of the Saville in Harlem and his sister is the biggest drug dealer in the Harlem area.  Now how is anybody like that will treat anybody.
