517. La Europa Academy

La Europa Academy is a so-called residential treatment facility located in Murray, Utah

There seems to be some concern about teenagers who face challenges regarding their gender identity.

A review on Yelp.com states:

Worst 9 months of my life. Do not send your child here if they struggle with gender identity issues. They will not get respected. And when you tour, they lie about a lot of stuff.

They also use a level system, which has been subject of much criticism among human rights groups.

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.

516. The family (Australian Church Community)

The Family also known as “Great White Brotherhood” and “Santiniketan Park Association” was founded in the early 1960’s. A number of children were adopted into the community. The children were subjected to a number of drugs including LSD. In 1987 the children were removed by the authorities and the founders charged with various crimes. Due to legal complications the owners were only fined.

515. The Adriel School

The Adriel School children with behavioral issues from across Southwest and Central Ohio. Now it lost its license due to actions of the employees.

The authorities has stated that the employees injured some of the children and showed them how to “get high.”

It is not something children who needed care and treatment should be imposed to.

It could not have been fun to be student at the Adriel School.

514. The Federico Mora Hospital

The Federico Mora Hospital in Guatamala City, Guatemala is been the center of an article made by BBC. It seems that the hospital is understaffed and they drug the patients to keep track of them.

It also seems that there are employees who take advantage of the drugged patients and rape them while they are under influence of drugs.

513. John Radcliffe Hospital

The John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford is mentioned in an article about two male nurses who took advantage of young teenage patients who were unable to defend themselves while being admitted and under the effects of drugs.

After the first case the administration should have taken precaution to prevent it but it seems that money is more worth than the safety of the patients.

512. Provo Canyon School

Provo Canyon School was founded in 1971. Over the years there have been a number of lawsuits. The system is very strict and today it is mostly known to have been the reason for creating a number of human rights organizations due to former inmates experiences.

It cannot be fun to be there as a male teenager with normal physical needs.

510. Outback Therapeutic Expeditions

Outback Therapeutic Expeditions is a so-called wilderness program operating in Utah. It was founded under anohter name and changed name some years later. The teenagers are forced there. Often they prevent one parent from seeing the children if the other parent has paid for the stay. A father wrote on a meassage board:

My wife had my son kidnapped and sent to Outback Therapeutic Expedition even though I have joint custody. I went to Utah to try to get him back but Outback made it clear that they would require me to file a lawsuit in Utah to get him back. I couldn’t afford to do that. They had cooperated with my wife in hiding him from me in the wilderness and I had no way of finding him.

Outback Therapeutic Expedition knew they were helping to use him as a weapon. There had been no psych eval before he was sent out there, and even when they had one done by their pet Psychologist, the only diagnosis they came up with to keep him was Depression Not Otherwise Specified.

In my opinion, the people at Outback Therapeutic Expedition should be put in Jail.

It cannot be forced to be there and being denied access to a parent.

509. Realations Group Home

The number of runaways from the Realations Group Home in Tulsa seems to send a message that there is too many children for the numbers of employees to handle. Many runaway attempts and two death are the result of understaffing.

There are ideas about relocating the facility to the countryside but what should that change? If there is not enough employees at hand the children will still wander off and be killed in the nature instead of the traffic.

508. Lincoln Hills

Lincoln Hills in Irma is a youth prison. However the conditions in the prison makes any punishment worse than the courts decided. The question is whether it is the courts or the prison employees who decide on how severe a punishment should be. In Wisconsin it is the prison employees. In the rest of the civilized world it is the courts.

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager being the victim of punishments decided by a random prison ward.
