I find if one asks "do you have your prescription with you." People become very talkative. Also, one can learn if there behavior is caused or could be resolved by medication. Also, I have seen the harm caused by calling drugs bad and not explaining that this is not the case when prescribed. I have heard dispatch calls from bipolar and schizophrenic people that were so scared that you could feel their tension. I have seen suicidal bipolar drunks. I have talked too many of them after they were put into custody. They all told me that “drugs were bad and that is why they kept trying to go off their medication.” Also, I have a self isolated homeless hyperactive man living in rat filth prescribed Adderall XL (an amphetamine) at a local hospital. When, I first met the hyperactive man he said he wasn’t taking drugs because he would feel ashamed to do so. The hyperactive man graduated top of his class from Stanford 3 years after he started taking medication he is now married to a doctor.
