I have heard of people denied a kidney for psychological reasons and I know my transplant center takes these things very seriously. I know that some places will deny you a liver if you have alcohol issues and don't seem serious about stopping drinking. I know they are also concerned that you will take good care of the new organ by taking meds and medical instructions seriously.

Did they give a reason for denial?
