344. The Village

The Village formerly known as Peninsula Village consisted of a residential program with two difference phases. First there was a strict hospital like environment where the teenagers were put in mechanical restraints or simply physical restrained whenever the employees wanted fun. The second phase was a boot camp styled wilderness experience in a nearby enclosed wilderness area.

A book was written about the facility called “Bad Girl” by Abigail Vona.

Having read the book it is safe to say that it was not fun to be there as a teenager. The program has been sold to new owners since the period where the author was committed to the asylum but almost everything was awful to read about.
