Teen Help Program Closes: Alleged Abuse of Students

Midwest Academy: Ex-students say they were tortured – NY Post – program is shut-down

Make no mistake, when parents reach their wit’s end with their troubled teenager they can be vulnerable and believe just about anything when they are searching for help.

I was there once.

My story or should I say nightmare, seems to be repeating itself with the headlines coming out of Iowa — with the alleged WWASPS affiliated program Midwest Academy (now closed).

According the the latest news report;

Midwest Academy Is Accused of Locking Students in Tiny Isolation Boxes for Days or More

This is not any different than we heard from students a decade earlier in their many other programs that are now closed.

It’s sad that we are now years later and this type of abusive behavior is still going on.

This is why I created my organization to help educate parents about the big business of the teen help industry.

bringing_families_back_togetherIt’s not about frightening you, as I firmly believe that parents need options.  Keep in mind, I was in your shoes once. There are many excellent programs and schools in our country, however it’s about learning how to sort the good from the not so good.

Visit www.helpyourteens.com and you will find advice and questions to ask schools and programs before making your major decision.

      Maybe I’m being polite when I said, coming to terms with online embellishment, when I actual meant — social media fakes. People who post to social media about their wonderful lives when behind the screens, it is anything but roses and cherries. It’s always nice to see people posting about their new puppy or kitty they saved […]
