Children with RAD often have a fascination with blood and gore, says Rhonda Noonan, director of clinical services at Cedar Springs.
"They can be very sneaky and very dangerous. . . . It's not unusual for them to kill the family pet."
Courtney once walked up to her brother, who was lying on the floor reading, and for no apparent reason "just kicked the crap out of his head," Hawkins recalls. Another time, she choked her brother until he was blue.
She carved on walls, picked at her skin, at times felt removed from her body. Her demeanor would switch from pleasant to vicious without warning. If a teacher at school said something Courtney didn't like, "She would just sit in her chair and pee."
"A family goes through more than I could even explain," Hawkins says. "It can be very terrifying."
But she's quick to add, "This is absolutely no fault of these children at all. They are that way because of whatever happened in their lives."
Program Means Hope
After Courtney threatened the Hawkins' 3-year-old with a knife, her therapist advised she be admitted to the adolescent mental- health unit at Providence Hospital in Anchorage for evaluation. The experts there helped get Courtney into the Cedar Springs program.
"We thank the good Lord every day for that program, because we have nothing in Alaska for children," Hawkins says.
Medicaid is paying for Courtney's stay at Cedar Springs. She has exhausted her mental-health benefits with Pat Hawkins' insurance.
