Fate’s Janitors: Mopping up Madness at a Mental Health Clinic
What happens when a famed, but fanatical psychologist secretly enlists a group of self-absorbed psychotherapists in an audacious revolt against the health care system?
Fate’s Janitors takes the reader inside the mental health and addiction treatment industry; where talk, noisy breath exhaled, is marketed as a precious healing salve. A perennial student must complete a counseling internship at an outpatient mental health clinic. His supervisor, a recovering addict, and former outlaw biker, is less than thrilled about having an intern tagging along. The clinic is treated like an ignored appendage to the medical center, which in turn has been taken over by a giant corporation. The renowned psychologist, Dr Ahern, is appointed director, but when the great man at last makes an appearance, he delivers outlandish orders to the staff and bribes them to lie to insurance companies, deceive regulators, and bamboozle auditors.
