Fate’s Janitors is a serialized web novel that takes the reader inside the mental health and addiction industry, the people who clean up after fate.
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.
The book takes the reader behind the pretenses of psychotherapy to show what happens when talk, noisy breath exhaled, is marketed as a precious healing salve.
A new chapter will be posted weekly.
Note: Fate’s Janitors contains some graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.
