Questionable therapy in the news


Recommended Posts

 Any kind of isolating environment without independent monitoring should be a major warning flag that abusive treatment is a likely possibility. If there were more effective solutions and better social support for troubled individuals, these kinds of shady businesses wouldn't exist.

Blow-back around these camps, articles, message boards, even movies has existed for a while. More recently a parent told me she had to play unnecessary games in her son's urban-based substance-abuse program.
Fear works only temporarily. 
I (feel I)  improved mainly through finding a focus and sense of purpose. I suspect troubled teens need the same.

Yes, I think having a focus and sense of purpose can make a big difference. Therapy was more an impediment to living a worthwhile life than a help in that direstion.
