I was discharged on April 5, 2021. Since that day I have been asking for a letter that states what I’ve completed to present to court in order to get my child back in my care. Today is August 12, 2021 and they still haven’t produced a letter on my behalf. Myself and my current advocates who are helping me have called at least every other day since that date, leaving message after message after message. I personally have left 45 messages for Cinda. My current counselor has called at least 20 times leaving messages for Cinda. When I spoke to Cinda last week she said she’s only received 2 messages, one from me and one from her. What a LIE! I was guaranteed several times I’d have my letter ready to pick-up and instead got stonewalled. She would say “I promise I’ll have your letter done on x date.” She has made up every excuse on the planet not to produce this letter even to go as far to say no one could be on the property on the particular day I was supposed to pick it up. Which turns out was a COMPLETE LIE. My letter was supposed to be ready this Monday with promises and further guarantees. I’ve called everyday since then and today was told by the receptionist after speaking with her while I was on hold that she “doesn’t do letters.”
What treatment centers doesn’t provide PROOF I did what I’m trying to say I did to show the court?! My daughter now refuses to speak with me because she thinks I’m lying about the whole thing. I called corporate this morning and am supposed to get a call from management later today. They are destroying my relationship with my only child because they are too damn LAZY to write a letter that should have been furnished the day I was discharged or the day I was given my “certificate of completion” (which honestly looks fake, printed on regular paper in black and white and isn’t even signed by anyone.) How am I going to even prove to a judge I did what I am saying I did with no proof?
Cinda needs to retire or get out of this line of work. She can’t sit here and say she is deeply invested in every single one of her case loads and turn around and do this to them. She has no compassion or empathy for people who are trying to turn their life around. She’s COMPLETELY lost what a person needs to possess in order to do this job effectively. I can’t believe for a second that she has not had 20 minutes in 4 months to write a letter. There are no more excuses that I will take as justification for this behavior, Cinda.
Of course this is a corporation because if it was mandated by the Oregon Health Department it would have been shut down years ago.
** UPDATE **
I called corporate at 11am. The letter is now ready at 1pm. I shouldn’t have believed ANYTHING out of Cinda the “drug and alcohol counselors” mouth. I’m an idiot for ever trusting her, even at BestCare itself. When I first got there I asked for a different counselor because I didn’t like the way she handled situations. She made it clear that it wasn’t her but instead something clearly wrong with me. Right….
All I can say is there are people who LOVE to talk about having great morals and values and there are people who actually live them. I choose to be the latter. People like Cinda prophesize and preach morality and the 4 promises all day long. She has 20 copies of that book sitting right next to her chair in her office. It might be valuable for her to actually pick-up and apply what she likes to shove down everyone’s throat all day every day.
I know for a fact I’m not the only one she’s messed with like this. She is systematically killing people and driving them away from recovery because she’s SUCH a fraud. Cinda, how many deaths are you indirectly responsible for because of your manipulation, gaslighting and narcissism? I don’t know how you look at yourself in the mirror. I also know you’re just going to laugh this off because empathy and compassion are words you just use, never actually knowing what it FEELS like to possess them.
I wish I knew what else I could do to hold her accountable for her actions. She owes my daughter a direct apology but I have no doubt it will be a cold day in hell before that happens.
