So, this week, the facility that she went to (not a good choice -- they gave her detox meds right away before finding out anything about her or her situation), discovered that she's about 5 wks. pregnant. She has since been relocated to a much better facility with a neonatal unit, and they've slowed down the talk about abortion (which they were trying to force her into despite the fact that she and my brother very much want to avoid that if at all possible), and have begun to talk about outpatient treatment options (for depression and anxiety). She currently is not taking anything (hasn't been for about 5 days now), and already is calmer, happier and more like her "normal" self. She is currently listed as an "involuntary admittance" because of the incompetence of the last facility (a nurse at which gave her a phone number and told her to sue said facility).
Her doctor REALLY wants to put her on something -- anything at all, it appears. He insists that there are many "safe" antidepressants, but my brother and his girlfriend are very skeptical, and aren't impressed with the responses they're getting from the professionals. I told my brother I would ask you all for a less mainstream perspective, and see if there's anything they're missing.
