Residential treatment and wilderness "therapy" programs have been denounced by the National Institute of Health as being harmful to children and families as well as ineffective in dealing with teen problems. There are multiple resources that expose the fraud and abuse of this industry. Some authors to check out are Dr. Peter Breggin, Alexia Parks, and Maia Szalavitz. Dr. Peter Breggin is author of multiple books regarding appropriate treatment for teens (see Reclaiming Our Children by Dr. Peter Breggin). Alexia Parks authored "An American Gulag" exposing the "teen help" industry and Maia Szalavitz has written two great books exposing the fraud and abuse inherent in this industry, "Tough Love America" and "Help at Any Cost".

 

We suggest parents do not remove their children from their home environment unless they pose an immediate threat to themselves or others. Leading expert in adolescent psychology and former head of the Department of Psychology at the University of California--Berkeley, Dr. Margaret Singer, has spoken out against these programs in great detail saying that they make a child's worst nightmare of abandonment come true and that the people who run these programs are slick businessmen with no training or expertise in helping teens appropriately. Maia Szalavitz, author of "Tough Love America", cites the National Institute of Health studies on these programs that have determined that they are harmful and not helpful to teens or their families. Szalavitz also stated on the Jan. 18th, 2005 episode of Montel Williams that even when children/teens pose an immediate threat to themselves or others that at most a short stay (1-4 weeks) in a local psychiatric hospital to deescalate the situation is what is needed followed by intensive out-patient family counseling.

 

If you are a survivor of one of these programs or otherwise interested in exposing fraudulent and abusive “treatment” centers or wilderness camps, please contact us.  For more information on this issue visit: http://www.heal-online.org/teen.htm.  On the HEAL website you will find links to lawsuits, news articles, and survivor websites detailing the abuses experienced at these facilities.  Also, please take a moment to read the open letter quoting government and private entities with their true intentions in these matters by visiting www.beyondbusiness.net/openletter.htm.  It is imperative that you DO NOT send your child to an out of state behavior modification program.  It is imperative that you DO NOT send your child to any program that limits or denies contact between you and your child at any point in their stay at the facility.  It is imperative that you DO NOT send your child to a facility that you yourself will not be monitoring on at least a weekly basis in person to monitor the treatment and well being of your child.  Be responsible, for the sake of your children.  

 

We recommend no one send children to a facility that matches any of the criteria on our warning signs list at www.heal-online.org/warn.htm. We have successfully exposed the abuses at Bethel Boys Academy (now closed), Bethel Girls Academy (now closed), CEDU Family of Programs (all programs now closed), Mountain Park Boarding Academy (now closed), and many others. We had proof of abuse at CEDU programs up for years prior to their being closed down on Friday, 3/25/05. The system sometimes takes too long to catch up with justice and truth. That's why we exist. We exist to warn and protect families from abusive behavior modification programs.

 

Also, we believe ALL programs outside of the US are suspect and ask that you read the U.S. State Department’s warning regarding international programs by clicking here.  Do not, under any circumstances, risk your child’s life in a program outside of the U.S. 

 

HEAL is not a referral service.  We do not advocate placement of children in unregulated, private, behavior modification programs or facilities.  Please do not contact us for referrals or approval of your subjecting a child to this corrupt and destructive industry.  

 

If you are unable to find the answers you are looking for, please visit: www.heal-online.org/faqs.htm and/or www.heal-online.org/help.htm

 

If you or your family were defrauded, abused, and/or subjected to human and civil rights violations, please get legal assistance now.  The statute of limitations varies from state to state.  You have a limited time to file a claim.  For a list of attorneys and attorney referral services that can help you in your pursuit of justice, click here.  For additional reporting resources, click here.

 

The "schools"/programs listed on our site fall under three categories: Investigating, Suspect, and Confirmedly Abusive.   A program categorized as "Investigating" is a program that we have been contacted about and which we have been asked to research.  Being "investigated" by HEAL does not imply a program is fraudulent and abusive.  It simply means we were asked to research the program by families or officials who are considering placement at the facility or who have reason to believe HEAL should investigate and/or expose alleged fraud and abuse at the facility.  If a program is categorized as "Suspect" it means it meets one or more criteria (i.e. sister program of confirmedly abusive facility, shares staff with an abusive facility, or one or more complaints regarding the facility are on file with HEAL and/or proper regulatory and enforcement agencies, etc.).  A program categorized as "Confirmedly Abusive" matches multiple warning signs of an abusive facility, has been sued or faced official complaints, and/or HEAL has received two or more substantiated reports of fraud and/or abuse regarding the facility.  Understand that this is an incomplete list and that it is your responsibility to look heavily into the program(s) into which you consider placing your child.  Some of the programs listed below are international programs that have been found to be abusive.  And, some are programs which have been investigated and determined to be abusive by other organizations.  We have added links and brief details where applicable regarding known abuses and reports.

THE HEAL PROGRAM LIST

The "schools"/programs listed on our site fall under three categories: Investigating, Suspect, and Confirmedly Abusive.   A program categorized as "Investigating" is a program that we have been contacted about and which we have been asked to research.  Being "investigated" by HEAL does not imply a program is fraudulent and abusive.  It simply means we were asked to research the program by families or officials who are considering placement at the facility or who have reason to believe HEAL should investigate and/or expose alleged fraud and abuse at the facility.  If a program is categorized as "Suspect" it means it meets one or more criteria (i.e. sister program of confirmedly abusive facility, shares staff with an abusive facility, or one or more complaints regarding the facility are on file with HEAL and/or proper regulatory and enforcement agencies, etc.).  A program categorized as "Confirmedly Abusive" matches multiple warning signs of an abusive facility, has been sued or faced official complaints, and/or HEAL has received two or more substantiated reports of fraud and abuse regarding the facility.  Understand that this is an incomplete list and that it is your responsibility to look heavily into the program(s) into which you consider placing your child.  Some of the programs listed below are international programs that have been found to be abusive.  And, some are programs which have been investigated and determined to be abusive by other organizations.  We have added links and brief details where applicable regarding known abuses and reports.

Decoding The List:

We have color-coded the three primary categories as follows:

Investigating-- Programs that we are investigating per the description provided above are listed in "Yellow".  For example, HEAL is currently investigating Innercept in Idaho.  So, in the list below you will see Innercept  written in yellow.  Sometimes programs that are confirmedly abusive remain on the investigating list until we have an opportunity to create a staff list and perform additional research substantiating reports of fraud and abuse.  We appreciate your patience.

Suspect-- Programs that are suspect per the description provided above are listed in "Orange".  For example, you will see Anasazi Foundation/Anasazi Wilderness written in orange.  We have received mixed reports regarding Anasazi and we do not have enough evidence on file to warrant upgrading them to "Confirmedly Abusive".  

Confirmedly Abusive--Programs that are confirmedy fraudulent and/or abusive per the description provided above are listed in "Red".  For example, you will see Provo Canyon School written in red as well as other facilities run by its current parent company, UHS, Inc

There are dozens of warning signs that a facility is fraudulent and abusive.  We have created a 5 point system to help parents determine if a program is fraudulent and abusive.  We have created a chart using the 5 point system to help identify fraud and abuse at residential and wilderness programs.  And, we have incorporated the chart to include our entire watch-list covering all categories referenced above.

The Five Point System:

Unlicensed--A "Yes" in the "unlicensed" point field below means that the program is not properly licensed to provide services it claims to provide.  A "?" in the "unlicensed" point field below means that we do not know if it is properly licensed and have been unable to verify licensure.  A "No" in the "unlicensed" point field means that the program appears to be properly licensed in all regards.

Restraint--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program engages in physical interventions with clients that may include violent restraint, physical abuse, or the use of pain to change behavior (i.e. Judge Rotenberg Center uses electro-shock devices to cause pain whenever a child is not perfectly on task (such as failing to make eye contact).  A "Yes" means that restraint is being used inappropriately and in instances that do not involve a legitimate imminent threat to a child's individual physical safety or the individual physical safety of others.  A "?" in the "Restraint" point field means that we do not know if it engages in physical interventions as described above.  A "No" in the "Restraint" point field means that we have no evidence suggesting the program engages in improper physical interventions.

Solitary--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program uses solitary confinement (aka isolation, observation, "time-out", investment, etc.) on clients.  Solitary confinement is a form of torture.  A "?" in this point field means we don't know if it uses solitary confinement or not.  A "No" in the "Solitary" point field means we have no evidence suggesting the program uses solitary confinement.

Incommunicado--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program restricts, monitors, censors, and/or denies contact between captive clients and the outside world (including immediate family).  Being held incommunicado is indicative of a high risk for serious abuses (including torture).  A "?" means we do not know if captive clients are held incommunicado by the program or not.  A "No" means we have no evidence suggesting the program holds clients incommunicado.

Deceptive--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program engages in deceptive marketing, false advertising, and/or other forms of fraud.  A "?" in this point field means that we don't know if it is engaging in deceptive practices.  A "No" in this point field means that we have no evidence suggesting the program engages in deceptive practices.

THE HEAL PROGRAM LIST

We have changed the list and removed the drop-down menu.  If you are looking into a specific program, please use the following tips.  If using a PC (not a Mac), hit "CTRL+F" and enter the name of the program then hit "enter key" or "return key".  If using a Mac (not a PC),  hit "Command+F" and enter the name of the program then hit "enter".  The Command key on a Mac is also known as the Apple Key or Clover Key.

The programs are in list form below and separated according to location.  For instance, all programs on our list operating in Alabama will be under "Alabama".  Again, we remind everyone this is an incomplete list and we whole-heartedly advise against enrolling any loved ones in any behavior modification program.
