Description

Teenagers at a mental health facility tied face-down to a bed and injected with powerful sedatives as punishment for small infractions. And yet, as my investigation showed, this was common at the state-funded Citrus Health facility in Pembroke Pines, Florida, a 56-bed facility for teens dealing with mental disease, sexual abuse, and addiction. The systemic abuse didn't stop there. Public records and interviews outlined a pattern of violence and sloppy policy.
