383. House of Hope Academy, Mexico
House of Hope Academy was closed by the authorities in Mexico in 2004. During the raid the police found punishment cells for the teenagers who for some part suffered from substance abuse problems or was just suspected of suffering from this illness.
News back then spoke of Illegal Psyc scams.
It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager suffering from the illness or not.
