WHen a mother discovers that the drugs her daughter is compulsed to take in the group home she lives in are making her seriously ill, she encounters the opposition of a system determined to "obey the laws." The laws make the administration of these dangerous psychiatric drugs compulsory in the group homes. Her effort to have these drugs tapered down lead to many hours of research, letters to pharmaceutical companies and doctors, as she encounters the paranoia she has caused to the group home setting. Her struggle hopefully will like the ripple of a pebble on a lake spur others in the same situation to action. In New Jersey, it seems consumers do not have the right to refuse psychiatric treatment forced on her in the absence of symptoms and with the knowledge that these drugs will injure then greatly and shorten their lives. There are other states where the right to refuse is mediated by the court system. Our loved ones in NJ are not protected that way.
