Scared Straight Programs for Troubled Teens

Many parents will contact us asking for their local scared straight programs.

What is a scared straight program?

Established in the 1970s, Scared Straight programs are used throughout the United States as a means of deterring juvenile crime. They usually entail visits by at-risk youth to adult prisons, where youth hear about the harsh reality of prison life from inmates.

We are not affiliated with any scared straight programs.  These are short-term programs that typically will not have long term results on your teenager.

If you are interested in these programs, please contact your local Sheriff’s Office and ask them if they have any referrals for you.

If you are interested in residential therapy, please contact us.
