This facility located in Utah gets mixed reviews and a parent wrote on Fornits that she felt that the facility was very self-centered and they didn’t consult people on the outside even when it came to medications etc. That can provide a danger because facilities should work together and not just second-guess diagnoses so they can earn more money on analyses.

It can result in too long stays and that cannot be fun to be there as a teenager when this happen. Also a resident speaks of gender therapy being practised there.

Some decades back Treloar College was the cutting edge when you had to place a child suffering from haemophilia. However the treatment included use of blood from people which were not properly screened and now only a few former students are alive. Most died from use of blood of poor quality.

It could have been fun to be there safe from bullies in the outside world which didn’t understand how difficult it is to live with this illness but in the end it was not fun because a stay turned out to be a death sentence.
