|Wagner passes the facility routine, becomes stabilized on psychotropics and finally gets permission from the doctor to leave the unit.|
|Wagner is given his discharge packet and is told by the social worker to "take it to the street, asshole."|
|Typically, the mentally ill are discharged from a psych hospital, put on a Greyhound bus and sent somewhere far, far away.|
|(There is actually a migratory pattern for the mentally ill being shuffled around the country. Ride Greyhound, find out for yourself!)|
