Freeroam Psychiatric Institution
|Situated in||The Southern Tip|
|Founded by||Craigg S. Wrought|
The Freeroam Psychiatric Institution is an institution aimed at helping psychiatric patients, situated in The Southern Tip region of the island. It was founded by Craigg S. Wrought, an esteemed chiropractor, in 1987. While Dr. Wrought was working in his local chiropractors' office he noticed a steadily increasing stream of customers who needed more help than he possibly give them. One day he decided to build the Freeroam Psychiatric Institution (FPI) out of his own pockets to launch a revolutionizing new method of treatment he had come up with. Rumors have been flying around ever since on how he managed to pay for it, making him somewhat of a controversial person in his own right.
Patients at the Asylum of Dr. Wrought are allowed to roam freely throughout the facility and the surrounding woods. Basically, the entire island can be considered their playground. This, according to the asylum's staff, is intended to help patients regain a sense of independence and control over their lives. However, many have questioned the safety of this approach, given the dangerous and unpredictable behavior of some patients. The asylum's staff is composed of a mix of medical professionals and untrained volunteers, who are often criticized for their lack of qualifications and professionalism. Despite these allegations, the asylum remains open and continues to operate under the direction of its enigmatic leader, Dr. Wrought.
Treatment programs at the FPI mostly consist of various treatments already being given in other psychiatric institutions worldwide. While generally seen as controversial, the treatments performed at the FPI are considered successful. At least, that is if we are to believe the shareholders' reports that leaked in 1997. These reports state that over 60% of patients never come back again after their first foray into the outdoors. The FPI argues that, by using the Schrödinger metric, it cannot be accurately determined whether or not the patient has recovered and therefore it is considered to be a successful treatment. Patients have been known to roam into the nearby campsite at night.
The facility has a few different amenities:
