181. Ironwood Maine
The private teen-prison Ironwood located in Maine was founded in 2006 with help from former employees who used to work for Turnabout Ranch in Escalante in Utah known for it tough approach throughout the world. Students from United Kingdom and Germany had been sent to Turnabout. In most cases the teenagers reversed to their old behaviors within months with one expection. The international known model Jemma Henley based her future career on the teachings learned in Utah.
Ironwood do use a level system where teenagers are placed at cabin without modern heating system. Maine can be very cold during the winter so for teenagers coming from as far away as Florida who is used to live in another climate it is close to abuse.
The family who is running the facility are very into horse breeding and is most likely using the operation of a troubled teen program to finance their expensive hobby.
Ironwood does not sound like a fun place to be sent to for a teenager.
