Epidemic Spreads to Trouble Teens Who Are Further Victimized

You might be interested to know that there is an epidemic of emotional, physical and even sexual abuse at "therapeutic" boarding schools for "troubled teens" (See this website: -- and search for either "Mount Bachelor Academy" which was closed last November or "SageWalk" wilderness program which was closed last September after a healthy 16 yr old died on a hike.) Both facilities are owned by CRC Health's Aspen Educational Group which owns many others. There are MANY such problem schools owned by other companies. This is an epidemic as these schools have multiplied 5 fold in the last 15 years. The monthly cost of sending your child to one of these is between $4,500 - $7,000 per MONTH! Same motive as those who seek guardianship over the elderly -- money!

It is also interesting to note that many of these facilities insist that parents placing their problem teens sign over CUSTODY of their child to the program, and some programs remove the kids to overseas locations! The parents can do nothing to stop it. We KNOW how they feel!

this group concentrate on the elderly abuse by guardians but I am quite sure that the story line in this trilogy is not just fiction. I am now wondering just how many young people are stripped away from their families by guardianship participate in these sexual and physically abusive acts.. We need to put that out and inquire from families who have lost their children to this corrupt system called guardianship
