Who do I report a rehab to? - March 31st 2014, 10:45 PM

Hey,

I'm always full of odd questions. So my dad was in a rehab type thing called the Denver Rescue Mission, it's a homeless shelter that also has a substance abuse program. While at their program Friday night he had a suicide attempt of overdose and slept/was in a coma (Can't get anything about his condition really...) until today (Monday). The rehab took him to the hospital at 7:30pm Saturday night, no one called us until a few hours ago. As far as I can tell he's okay, they're more worried about permanent brain damage and so forth.

I'm baffled that it took them so long to notice, especially in a place where it's common for people to be suicidal. What if his family seeing him in a coma would be the last time we could have seen him alive? And how many people have died or will due to their negligence?

I know there is a place to call to report mental health facilities, but I don't think they're registered as such? But there has got to be someone that oversees rehabilitation facilities, right?

Thanks!
Maria

Sorry to hear about what happen to your dad, hopefully he doesn't have any permanent issues from it. Only thing I can say is to try calling a local attorney that deals with stuff like this? Not sure on all the laws and stuff in your area but they should be able to give you some insight

Hey there,

You could try calling a local attorney that deals with this or you could try contacting the Better Business Bureau. I don't know if that is what they are there for but it might be a place for you to get started. They might be able to offer you referrals or give you ideas of where else you can look.

Sorry if this didn't help that much!
