HEAL is in the process of reviewing the application, enrollment agreement, and
parent handbook for Resolution Ranch. In the meantime, we quote a
portion of the "power of attorney" form included in Resolution Ranch's
application (downloaded from resolutionranch.com on October 14th, 2010)
"VI. To search the resident and Residents personal effects at any time, and seize any items deemed by Resolution Ranch to be counterproductive to the Residents successful completion of the Program. The search of the Residentís person may require Resident to change all of his/he clothing in the presence of a staff member, where contraband may be hidden.
VII. To restrict the Residentís access to telephone calls, visitors, and delivered materials. "
Searching a child without probable cause or proper authority is a violation of the child's rights. This was determined by the Supreme Court in 2009.
Restricting a child's access to the telephone, visitors, and/or mail indicates likely violations. Monitoring/censoring the mail of minors in residential programs was found to be a civil rights violation in the federal court decision, Milonas and Rice, et al v. Provo Canyon School. This is a serious concern.
