This school should have been close down in the early 1980′s. But due to, in my opiniion, a cozy relationship that Elan and its owners and attorney’s had with federal, state and local entities, it made it impossible to get any real investigations.
Investigative journalist and former employee of Joe Ricci, Maura Curley and I ,researched the background of Joe Ricci and Elan School for nearly 3 years. Elan School former residents were interviewed and their stories were published in 1991. The Book, DUCK IN A RAINCOAT: AN UNAUTHORIZED PORTRAIT OF JOE RICCI, was introduced as evidence in the Skakel trial. The judge ultimately ruled that since there was existing published testimony by former Elan residents, residents could testify at the Skakel trial over the objections of Joe Ricci and Elan.
Elan Survivors waged this campaign to get Elan shut down, and they finally won.

I've read about this place and Danny Bennson and am horrified by it.

Danny Bennison's words
"I was a active drunk (as staff) and in the end maybe last 2 months drug user while I was working there. Not very responsible leader.
As my memory comes back I will post more."
