I visited this facility

To be honest, Hedgewood is a sort of local joke amongst the residents of Beacon. The stigma surrounding it outweighs any positives. The center allows for mentally ill individuals to basically roam free on the streets, urinating in public places and disrupting local businesses on a constant basis. The residents have been found sleeping on people's front lawns, and in their basements. Some individuals have been known to rant to invisible listeners about flying saucers and alien abductions. Others yell obscenities at children on their way home from school. It is a shame that these individuals are not receiving the treatment they deserve or need. When I visited the site, I realized that the inside was just as bad as expected. The facility is run-down, with little staff attention given to residents. The food looks awful (I did not taste it, fortunately), and the living quarters are depressing. In all honesty, I don't understand why this place isn't shut down. The grounds are in severe need of maintenance, and the whole place has an odd odor. I wouldn't wish a stay here on my worst enemy.
