look up any word, like fleek:
 
17.
A Mental Health hellhole of Meadville, PA. Where Staff Members create a dillusional sanctuary, where they monitor the heavily medicated consumers that the system wants to forget. Only to credit them with the ability to give & point fingers regarding 'stigma' so the organizations and it's staff members can make money. Then go back and strip the consumers of their dreams, hopes, and every sense of pride & independence.
What's wrong?

I got kicked outta CHAPS again!

For what?

I wasn't allowed to have more than 2 cigarettes in an hour! ...so I'm not allowed to go to CHAPS for 6 months and I have to either treat my apartment like a prison or hang out aimlessly in-front of neighborhood bars!<:(
