I dropped a friend off once and couldn't help but notice it looks like the place hasn't seen a new coat of paint since the 80's.

If they are doing their job, does the paint really matter?
of course

Sure it matters - they are making plenty of money and should be able to do some upkeep - and who said they were "doing their job" - most of the people there are repeats lol!

Their idea of treament consists of prescription writing instead of actual therapy. If you like to take pills legally then get an appointment over there.

pills treat the symptoms and not the cause. so many practitioners jump to medication because its easier and quicker for them to drug people up instead of having to actually work to help them solve their problems.

did you ever think maybe some people don't actually have problems (don't get me wrong, I am fully aware that people have mental illnesses that they TRULY cannot help)
but that the doctors prescribe them drugs just to make money because some weak people who just can't handle life cannot accept that there is nothing wrong with them and they need to quit whining and just suck it up?

its in their heads because the doctors insist that it is. they label anybody who comes through with a diagnosis pulled straight from their loony bible the DSM.

Ever heard of Ritalin? There are a very few children who this drug helps, however every kid whose parents just don't want to deal with gets prescribed it. Fact.

This is a NON-PROFIT organization working hard to help people, not doing it for the money. I know some of the people who work there and I assure you they are good at their job. They worry about the clients and do everything possible to help them. They only prescribe meds to them if it's necessary and after consulting with the clients physician. They do offer counseling there and the clients are even set-up with follow-up appointments. The Mobile Crisis unit often puts their own lives in jeopardy by going to the homes of these clients who are threatening to take their own life plus those around. These workers are working to make a difference in someone's life. So instead of getting on here and trying to demean their job or accuse them of being in it for the money, why don't you learn from their actions and try to actually do some good for others!
You dont say

I was told they didn't do counseling that they wrote scripts and if you did not want one then they would not take you as a client. I heard this from one of their employees!

Well that's funny because they have peer counseling there and the clients are urged to follow-up there after they've been seen. Maybe you're source works in a different section than mine. The goal there is to get the client help, not just drug them and get them back on the street or in a state of danger to themselves or others.

I like the counseling, the medication isn't too bad either.

I used to work there and yes they do offer counseling, but only if your insurance will cover it. You can get counseling and case management without having to take any meds. Most of the people that work there honestly give a damn about the clients.
