324. Saving Youth Foundation

Justice finally caught up with the management of a Christian Boot camp in Mobile, Alabama

Years ago we wrote about a similar boot camp also in Alabama called Restoration Youth Academy also located in Alabama. After we wrote about the facility they got some unwanted attention from the local media and they decided to close their operations.

It turned out to be a trick enabling them to open under a new name.

Ordinary families who sought help for their children gave them to people who shackled their teenagers and isolated them in small boxes as punishment being lured by a website promising counseling and therapy.

Fortunately the authorities intervened and several arrests have been made.

It is time that the people behind such scams which includes a history back to infamous places like Bethel Boys Academy etc. can be stopped.

It could not be a fun place to be as a teenager.

    Stumbled across your blog, and it looks like you’ve gotten to know Alabama pretty well. I’m a Peace Corps Volunteer and am looking for people to help me out with a project for my English class in Mozambique. There’s more info on the Postcard Project tab on my blog. Let me know if you’d be able to help out. Haven’t gotten anything from Alabama yet.
