What would be the typical outcome being placed at a facility like John de la Howe School in South Carolina? An article published about one of the former students – Robert Lamb – high school sports star, college and professional football player shows a life marred by addiction. It was a life where things had to be made up to explain the placement at the school. A life based on a lie.

Recent articles also tells something about the things the students were exposed to. A former employee had an improper relationship with a student. Another employee showed pornographic material to the students according to an article in the local media.
