860. Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health

The Devereux organization established their Texas department in 1959 and it is one out of many departments across the United States.

Searching on the facility articles speak of possible sexual attack on children and riots. An article points out that the management was not observant enough setting up guidelines which could have prevented these incidents.

Feedback from former patients on Google is not that positive

I use to live here. They played favoritism. When it was time for prom they told us if you walk out of school or anywhere else you will not attend prom but that was a lie. The counselors never cared. Never listened to you. I cant wait to show up one day to surprise everyone. Cause this place needs to be shut down. After me and another client left me and her still talked i told her i was pregant and told me someone from Devereux could take care of my baby. Umm what? The baby would have a better life. I miscarried. But for staff to still be connected with residents is a little disturbing. This place is not worth it. Dont come here EVER!

Horrible communication good luck getting any information after spending 3 days calling leaving messages and never getting a callback I tried the number my insurance company provided and spoke to a super rude disgruntled employee who informed me they were long term not short term(1-2months inpatient) facility which is NOT clearly stated on their website. If the initial intake is this incompetent I can’t imagine how services could be

782. The Never Give Up Youth Healing Center

Located on the same property as the now-closed New Horizon Academy, the school was raided by the police. The water on the property is still contaminated. It is not safe to drink. Apparently the employees have something to hide as the police arrested on the employees for obstructing an officer executing the search warrant.

A lot on their website indicate that they use the same structure as the other company. It seems that the methods used by the now-defunct WWASP chain are still used by small firms who rent property at buildings that previous housed WWASP schools.

It remains unclear what they treat the teenagers for. Back in the WWASP days it was only about detention of children, the parents did not have time for. A lot of games were constructed to make it look like it was treatment but it was basically the same nonsens you see at many sales conventions motivating good spirit and results. It was not treatment of serious mental health issues.

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.

766. Unnamed boarding school in Dehradun, India

A 12 year old boy was beaten to death by some of the fellow students because they believed he stole a packet of biscuits. The school administration tried to cover up the death by burying the boy on campus and not notifying the parents that their boy was death.

After the police intervened a 18 year boy disappeared.

It cannot be fun to be there as a student. If anyone knows the name of the school, please write it in the comments.

763. Unnamed residential treatment facility in Romania

Unnamed residential treatment facility in Romania located in the village of Viseu de Sus was raided by the police and several of the adults were detained.

The managers had set up the program in connection with local officials who informed them of inspections in advance so they could drug the teenagers so they were sedated and not able to make any complaints to the inspectors. The teenagers were Germans imprisoned outside their own country with approval from German authorities because such a facility could be run cheaper with low-paid Romanian labor rather than running it in Germany where the salary levels are higher.

It could not be fun to be detained abroad under such conditions.

605. The Village School, Philadelphia

The Village School lost two employees after the police arrested them for their indecent relationship with students. The arrests removed a factor of stability at the facility and now reports of fights among students in the facility is reported. The students at this facility are court-ordered to be there and now there are no strategy about how to reward students. It causes turmoil.

604. Lighthouse Care Center of Augusta

The Lighthouse Care Center of Augusta did not conduct a proper background check of their employees properly because they wanted to keep the costs of having employees low, so now the police are doing it for them. 3 times the police have arrested employees charging them with various crimes where the children became the victims.

It is safe to say that it cannot be fun to be at a facility where the police has to wait for crimes to happen before the employees can be ordered to act like the professionals they were supposed to be.

570. Morava Academy

Morava Academy was a shortlived boarding school project located in the Czech Republic. It was using the methods set up by the WWASP organization. The authorities in the Czech Republic soon discovered that something was wrong with the place and decided to conduct a raid. What they found was basically a private prison with isolation rooms.

The employees were arrested and the managers escaped the justice some months later when they fled from the country. Many of the teenagers did however not enjoy freedom when they returned home because the authorities in the United States failed to take the teenagers into protection by the social services when they returned home. Most of the teenagers were placed at the boarding school by parents who weighed personal time and cruises over parental responsability.

545. Ashramshala, India

A boarding school in the Buldhana area Maharashtra, India locally called Ashramshala are in the media after the police arrested several employees of alleged rape. Rape cases in India occur often. After their independence local laws are close to a joke. Often the people accused of rape die before trial when a trial could expose the authorities lack of order.

Sometime the victims die before giving evidence.

In this case the number of victims are supposed to be around 12 and it is mentioned that one victim was only 10 year old.

It cannot be fun to be a student at this boarding school also going under the name Ninadhi Ashram school and Nimbaji Kokre ashramshala.
