Sex Offenders at UBH? Now hear this!

Sex offenders?  In a behavioral health hospital?  I’d surely hope not.  But this was e-mailed to me by a former patient at UBH.  I cannot speak, really.  Both because I wasn’t there at the time this happened, and, because I’m utterly speechless:

“…we had several female individuals who were in a program strictly for recovery for sexual trauma. After 10 days of intense therapy, during wrap up group one of the gentleman held on the same wing admitted that he was a sex offender and had raped and molested his daughter and nieces for years. There were several females who were extremely disturbed by this admission and asked that either he, or they be moved to another wing.

“Their request was refused and these poor women were forced to resume their intensive sexual trauma therapy locked up with a pedophile living 10 feet away from them, eating with them at lunch, constantly watching them. Many of them broke down into extreme psychosis or left the hospital because of this. This was a very hard experience to watch. I wish they would have moved or discharged him. I watched too many tears shed over such a stupid stubborn decision to keep him on the ward. It was supposed to be a safe place for these women to heal, but instead they were trapped in fear of what brought them there in the first place.”

    Sorry, UBH does not even HAVE a “program strictly for the recovery from sexual trauma” as is evidenced by visiting their website. This story just doesn’t hold together under scrutiny, sorry.

      Whatever. You keep cheering them on and I will keep relaying stories from actual patients.

      • increasingly disgusted says:

        There is a difference between “cheering them on” and simply being impartial. I’ve never actually said anything positive about UBH or the treatment they provide.

      I beg to differ they had one in Feb of 2009. I was in attendance at UBH for 6 weeks until my private insurance ran out and I was deemed “cured” of my PTS!

      • ubhdenton says:

        Liza, I am so sorry that you went through this. What I don’t understand is how they are allowed to continue. Did someone molest or hurt you at this facility? If so, please report them to the regulatory bodies I’ve shown in the menus on my site. At least let the Texas Medical board know about it. Please write me at if you need to talk.

    I was raped at UBH while I was medicated and unconscious. I’m only 17, and had been a virgin. Those bastards covered it up and told me it was a dream.

    • ubhdenton says:

      I’m so sorry about this. So truly and genuinely sorry. It breaks my heart and I have cried real tears for you this evening. I hope the lawyers representing them feel good about their clients as they come after me.
