845. Spring Ridge Academy
Spring Ridge Academy located in Mayer, Spring Valley, Arizona. The facility is targeted by a lawsuit.
A former student wrote on Google:
I was forced to attend this ‘school’ over 20 years ago now. I still feel traumatized. Parents: Do NOT send your child here just because things are difficult. Research ‘troubled teen industry’ scams and the effects of parental abandonment during your teen’s formative years before you do this. I’m grown now, and I still can’t forgive my parents for doing this to me; we haven’t spoken in almost 10 years. This was one of the most awful experiences I endured growing up. Please find another way.
Her experience seems to be very much in line with testimonies from other former students.
The founder Jeannie Courtney used to work at a WWASP facility – Cross Crook in Utah which is also mentioned in this blog.
