325. Pendleton Academies

The Pendleton Academies was located in Pendleton in Oregon. It closed in 2008.

Founded in 1989 the facility was as a non-profit organization specializing in education and psychiatric treatment for children with the most challenging behavioral, educational, and mental health care needs.

However the facility used a lot of restraints and they failed to report the use of this to the authorities. As result they were forced to close.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.

    I was here as a teenager. Between the awful food, abusive staff, police getting called a lot with kids dragged off to juvie most of the time, treatment being terrible, one psychiatrist having improper qualifications, me going to an abusive “contract care home” (aka foster home), and staff experimenting with punishments on me, not to mention trying me on numerous medications without parental consent and against my protests of how it was messing with my head
