586. Oak Plains Academy
Oak Plains Academy which used to be known as Chad Youth Enhancement Center didn’t report to the family of a teenager that she had run away, so they could aid in the search. A mistake which could be fatal if the girl would be taken advantage of during her time on the run.
When it was known as Chad Youth Enhancement Center a 17 year old boy was strangled when an employee tried to restrain him by holding both his hands against the boys neck. In 2005 a 14-year-old-girl from Long Island died after a confrontation with other employees.
A large number of negative reviews made by former residents can be found on the Internet. It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
