605. Cheyenne Mesa

Cheyenne Mesa was located in Colorado Springs. It is closed now. If you google the facility all links which pops up are about 15 year old Robert Thomas Pillsen-Rahier, who disappered from the facility in 1990.

What is very odd about this place is that his mother found blod in his underwear during a home visit and the phone calls were monitored so this poor boy was afraid of talking openly with his mother over the phone.

What was his fear about? Were other children affected by the same kind of fear of talking. Was he simply silenced and by who?

Whenever you have a treatment facility which does not allow patients privacy when they talk to family members there is a risk of possible abuse which could take place against the children who are held at such facilities.

It certainly could not have been a fun place to at if you were a teenager forced into treatment there.

    I spent time there in the 80’s. It wasn’t a place I wanted to be. I ran away once to.
