258. Adolescent and Family Institute of Colorado (AFIC)
Jessica Palmer was only 17 years of age when she decided that she had enough of life.
Years before her parents enrolled her at Adolescent and Family Institute of Colorado also known as AFIC. Here she was cut off her family. The unlicensed staff convinced her that she hadn’t the illness she was committed with. She was faking. But the staff had no education which could enable them to make that decision. As result she got worse.
Beside the case of Jessica Palmer other families have stepped forward. The state of Colorado could not explain how this facility was allowed to continue their operation. It should have been shut down decades ago.
Being treated by amateurs when we are taking serious illnesses cannot be fun for any teenager.
