my daughter is in claxton georgia at the womens probation detention center for drug charges and aggravated assault -the assault happened during a drug enduced mania- i had supposedly a great lawyer that charged me $7500.00 and she got a year. i have had a terrible time getting her help, i have had to call everyone in the state to try and get her help. she has tried to cut her wrist 2 times since being there, they are constantly messing up her medication. she is now on like 5 different medications. they charge he account five dollars a week for seeing a nurse practictioner. a doctor from atlanta,dr,dagroote;went to see her(he was from atlanta) and he requested a counselor to see her once a week, nicole has seen her once since then. the man that runs the facility is very uncaring of this disorder, only that it is costing his facility medication and agravation. my daughter has a son now that is 13 months old and i am worried that the child will lose his mother for ever. if anyway i can be of help i will. it is sad the way everyone thinks of the bipolar diorder, also medication is so expensive and finding help that a lower class(about 20,000 to 25,000 a year salary.)with no medical insurance can afford. i hope you can do something about this even if it has no effect on my situation, maybe you can help others. thanks for just letting me speak. kim mcnear
