If you are an activist who would like HEAL's assistance or support for your cause, event, or action alert (i.e. an online petition), please see http://www.heal-online.org/solidarity.htm for additional information and guidelines for requesting our assistance. It is pretty basic and not unnecessarily cumbersome. You will find directions for submitting those requests at the above referenced link in this paragraph.

HEAL is a network of advocates, including parents who've been defrauded by the Teen Behavior Modification Industry (i.e. Wilderness Programs, Wilderness Camps, Residential Treatment Centers, Therapeutic/Emotional Growth Boarding Schools, Boot Camps, etc.). We are families and professionals (including medical and mental health professionals, educators, lawyers, and civil servants). We are here to help.
The teen years have always been a struggle for both young adults and parents alike. Teens have always taken action to establish autonomy and independence and parents have always had difficulty balancing discipline, responsibility, and respect. HEAL offers a parenting guide to aid you in making healthy choices for you and your family. You can view this guide by clicking here.
We have many parent volunteers that can help you figure out how to rescue your child if your child has been placed in a behavior modification program. Whether you currently have legal custody or not, we may be able to help you. Our parent volunteers are:

Most, if not all, behavior modification programs use similar deceptive marketing techniques and abusive and secretive/cult-like practices. While our volunteers may not have experience with the particular program you are investigating and/or from which you wish to rescue your child, we can give you firsthand information on how rescues were achieved from other programs and advise you on why or how the program your child is in is like those with whom we have firsthand experiences.
We also have a legal help page at www.heal-online.org/legal.htm. If you need legal help in rescuing your child, please review the resources available at this page.
If you are looking to comment on something unrelated to parenting or fraudulent and abusive programs, please visit here.
We ask that you respect that our organization does not and will not condone, recommend, or refer to residential programs or services. We are here to help you make the smart choice and keep your child at home and/or in your local community. We will not debate this issue. We have overwhelming evidence that this industry is fraudulent, abusive, torturous, corrupt, and often deadly. We will not condone or recommend risking any child or young adult's well-being by placing them in a private, unregulated prison under the complete control of strangers. It is traumatic and psychologically harmful. If you want our help, please contact us.
