Pa. Study: Kids in Foster Care 3 Times As Likely To Get Psych Drugs

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Children in foster care in Pennsylvania are at least three times as likely as other children to receive drugs used to treat mental illness.

That’s the conclusion of research released today at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and the results have public health officials concerned.

Researchers found that while about 15 percent of all children covered by Medicaid receive psychotropic drugs — drugs that work on their brains — about 45 percent of those in foster care do.

State human services secretary Ted Dallas (in photo below) says it’s true that kids in foster care may have greater mental health needs because of the trauma that got them in the system, but he says the disparity indicates that overmedication is taking place.

“To think that we’re compounding that damage (of foster care placement) by inappropriately prescribing medication to these kids is deeply disturbing to me and is simply unacceptable,” he said.

Pennsylvania officials have already launched a response. Deputy human services secretary Cathy Utz says it includes increased monitoring of prescriptions for foster children and better training for their relatives and foster families on how they can get involved and “be part of the fight in the overmedication of children in foster care.” Source: philadelphia

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

Health Impact News Editor  Comments

We have previously documented that 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. (See: The Medical Kidnapping Business: Bilking Medicaid.)

Carlos Morales, a former CPS investigator now turned whistleblower, states that foster kids are 3 times more likely to be put on psychotropic drugs than children left with their parents. (See: Foster Homes: Where Good Kids Go To Die.)

Now, a new report from the Bay Area News organization shows that 1 out of every 4 adolescents in the California foster care system is being drugged, 3 times the rate for adolescents nationwide.

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

by Citizens Commission on Human Rights International

Excerpts:

With alarming frequency, foster and health care providers are turning to a risky but convenient remedy to control the behavior of thousands of troubled kids: numbing them with psychiatric drugs that are untested on and often not approved for children.

A new report issued from the Bay Area News organization, raises the alarm on mass prescribing of dangerous psychotropic drugs to California’s foster care children. Among the findings of the investigation: Nearly 1 out of every 4 adolescents in the California foster care system is being drugged, 3 times the rate for adolescents nationwide. Even more alarming is that of the tens of thousands prescribed psychiatric drugs, nearly 60% were prescribed powerful antipsychotics which have been documented by 72 international drug regulatory warnings to cause heart problems, stroke, diabetes, convulsions and sudden death.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a mental health watchdog organization responsible for helping to enact more than 150 reforms against abusive mental health practices, says this treatment of children is medical neglect, and reforms must be enacted to protect this vulnerable population. CCHR has experts in the field of California Foster Care who are available for media interviews, as well as doctors who can speak to the dangers of the drugs being prescribed to children, not only in foster care, but nationwide.

According to IMS Health, the leading vendor of all US prescribing data, nearly 9 million children are currently being prescribed psychiatric drugs—with more than 1 million under the age of five.

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:24-26)
