This would be best to discus with whichever doc has most recently properly assessed him, and who presumably is the doc writing his prescriptions. I'm sure any center tries to deal wih such things, but if you think about i, there will also be situation no center could deal with. Maybe some changes in his medications could reduce his aggression, and help him to become more manageable again
