Late yesterday the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights®) asked the United States District Court in Alaska to prohibit William Hogan, Alaska’s Commissioner of Health and Social Services, and William Streur, its Director of Health Care Services, from continuing to defraud the federal government by submitting claims for off-label psychotropic drugs forced on children and youth that have been banned by Congress.

“Commissioner Hogan and Director Streur were informed these practices were illegal and constituted Medicaid Fraud in September of 2008, yet they have continued to flout the law and perpetuate this fraud on the federal government,” said Jim Gottstein, the attorney handling the case for PsychRights, “Children and youth continue to be grievously harmed by this practice and this is the first chance we have had to try and get a court to stop the practice.”

PsychRights Motion for Preliminary Injunction Against Defendants Hogan and Streur was filed in United States ex rel Law Project for Psychiatric Rights v. Matsutani, USDC Alaska Case No. 3:09-cv-80-TMB, which seeks $5,500 in minimum penalties for each of thousands to millions of offending prescriptions from 32 defendants, including psychiatrists, their employers, and pharmacies.

It is Medicaid fraud to cause or submit prescriptions to Medicaid for reimbursement if they are not for a medically accepted indication. PsychRights has developed a Medically Accepted Indications Chart showing what is allowable for common psychiatric drugs. Every other use of these drugs in children and youth and submitted to Medicaid is fraudulent. The fraud is rampant, with PsychRights conservatively estimating at least half of psychotropic drug prescriptions to children and youth submitted to Medicaid are not for medically accepted indications and therefore fraudulent.

The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights is a public interest law firm devoted to the defense of people facing the horrors of forced psychiatric drugging and electroshock. PsychRights is further dedicated to exposing the truth about psychiatric interventions and the courts being misled into ordering people subjected to these brain and body damaging drugs and electroshock against their will. Extensive information about the tragic damage caused psychiatric drugs and electroshock is available on the PsychRights web site:


Well, organization is a struggle for me. I am kinda of messy or cluttered and I do so many things. I am a clean person, just cluttered.

I would much rather spend money on a professional organzier than a thereapist.

I am trying to get my paperwork together for my taxes and for ss.

But I have been thinking about asking my husband if we should go to a therapist together.

He really wants me to move back in with him.  I don’t really know what the advantagaes would be for me????


Well, I have been thinking about this blog.  I am also thinking when will I go public with my struggles and  my successes.  I am preparing for a speech, but it isn’t really on this topic. It is in a way related, but I don’t say anything about my struggles.

I am also debating one more part-time job, but I don’t know if it would be too much.  I feel much more healthy than when I was taking psych drugs, but I still get tired.

Take care and take care of yourself. Think twice before taking psych drugs.


Our children are food illiterate.

I wondered what that was. I heard a story about a kid who was visiting and when the hostess put a baked potato on his plate he shrieked.  He didn’t know what one was.  He was eight years old and had never seen a potato or even know what one was. WOW!  That means his parents never cook. At least not in front of him.

You can read and or listen to the story here: Combating Food illiteracy


Just a note to let you know that mentally I continue to do very well. I feel very successful in my chosen field. I don’t get paid very much, but it is rewarding.

I am really wondering about moving back in with my husband. I don’t really want to start all over again. I thougth I would go stay at his place in the next couple days. I need to get all my paperwork and electronic, clothes, etc. and birng to his place.
