• California’s Crisis: 1 Out of Every 4 Children in California’s Foster Care Prescribed Powerful Psychiatric Drugs

    We have previously documented how one incentive for hospitals and social workers to medically kidnap children is because they can bill all drugs and medical care to medicaid, with virtually no accountability for children who are wards of the state and in the foster care system. Carlos Morales, a former CPS investigator now turned whistle-blower, states that foster kids are 3 times more likely to be put on psychotropic drugs than children left with their parents. Now, a new report from the Bay Area News organization shows that 1 out of every 4 adolescents in California foster care system is being drugged, 3 times the rate for adolescents nationwide.

    It is so sad to see adults trying to resolve problems and issues with a pill(s). After raising three teenage girls and two boys, it can be stressful. Three teenage girls with attitudes is rough, but there are other ways to tend to children's needs, without resorting to perscription drugs!

    Thank you for posting this. This issue has gotten the attention of legislators, and there were supposed to be new policies that would start Oct 1. http://www.mercurynews.com/News/ci_26562339/Drugging-Our-Kids:-California-calls-for-new-checks-on-psych-meds-for-foster-kids That paper's coverage of the problem was really awesome. I live in CA's San Bernardino County. Here is what our county CPS director had to say about it. He didn't think our county was doing anything wrong. http://www.sbsun.com/health/20140823/when-prescribing-psychotropic-drugs-for-foster-children-san-bernardino-county-has-extra-safeguard-in-place. A grandmother and her sister later spoke at a county board of supervisors meeting Sept 23 about how the two-year-old granddaughter was on these drugs in foster care. The two ladies speak 47 minutes in to this video, and at 58 minutes in Supervisor Rutherford asks the county CPS director, Randall Schulz, to respond http://sanbernardino.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=13
