yes, of course they assault residents. daily. it was bad when i was there. get your ass slammed for talking too politely. it definitely is an abusive facility, from the program itself to the staff working there. did nothing but breed anger and paranoia in me.

I worked there for a short period of time then quit. They are all about appearances, but on the inside it is not a place "I'd put my dog". Only good thing is they better than Necco. Quit that place as well. Sex, drugs within Stan & involving kids. Had a friend who worked there that warned me but I thought no way. But I was wrong. On both $ talks. Kids are there for a reason but a boot camp is more ethical than either one of those places.

i was in the facility for 18 months. i was made fun of every day because i have a country accent. the kids were allowed to torment me and the staff helped. you have to be perfect in every way and have nothing that sets you apart from everyone else. it is not a helpful place.

I was in Gamma for 18 months started when I was 15. My mom died my first day there. Had to go to her funeral and then tell everyone all of my dirty little secrets. Everyone thinks that a kid has done something bad to get put there. Well I didnt and I know other kids that didnt too. I got sent there cuz I had a bad social worker. She didnt care where she put me. I tried to work the program at first but then I seen how corrupt this place was. Its worse than a military boot camp cuz its not only physically demanding but its mentally scarring. No other child should know the abuse or sexual abuse or incest or rape about another child. It is your own personal business and this program forces kids to talk about it and if you dont then you are punished. If you are not perfect in every possible way then you are punished which could mean isolation for weeks or months or restrained for hours or days. I seen a girl from my group stay in a restraint for 3 days (they escorted her with "wings" (2 staff members innerlocked in kids arms) to the bathroom and watched her pee and then walked her back to the concrete where the incident first happened and laid her back down and continued to mind fuck her for hours. I can vouch for it cuz I was also in a similar restraint but mine ended cuz they cracked me cuz I gave up and couldnt feel my arms anymore. I did everything they wanted my first 2 months and the staff member found a way to knock me down phases and made me starttttt all over. Also our group at the time was made to either build a ditch or weed whip for 8-10 hours every day!

i was in delta, i was on isolation for a solid month because i said i felt different than the rest of my group and was frustrated because everyone acted like they didn't understand a word i said. if it wasn't for the group leader setting everyone (including staff) straight i would have been there longer. i was in a restraint for 9 hours one time and mr grizwald dug his elbows into my calfs the whole time. me feet were past the point of losing feeling. i was accused of huffing gas out of a weed eater when i was putting the gas feed back on because my weedeater kept messing up. i listened to one staff call a peer a wh***. and another girl incest because her dad raped her. i would never suggest that place to anyone.

My daughter had a similar experience there in which she didnt break and began to starve her self and became unresponsive and as a result was finally sent to a mental facility to avoid legal ramifications due to abuses, which subsequently resulted in her contracting an autoimmune disease known as rheumatoid arthritis,(RA),due to the torture and abuses she endured while she was there. She struggles with this disease daily and has been told she will be confined to a wheelchair by the time she is 25. when will something be done about this facility, its employees, and the social service workers who allow these atrocities to continue to occur.

i was there for 42 days. on the 12th i ran for the mountains and hid but was found by the campus dog. i was tortured. i refused to walk talk or eat. the very first day i started this actually within minutes they had a small conversation about what to do with me. i was on a top bunk they came into the room removed the side and pushed my body off into the floor. they had two men carry me for a few days wherever my group went. this pulled my skin and made stretch marks on my arms. they drug me through the bushes and when they put me down for a break they would be sure to set me in any water puddles they could find. it was December mind you. they got sick of the toll it was taking on their own bodies and began keeping me on the floor of an empty room across from the cafeteria. i was physically verbally and emotionally abused everyday but i spoke not one word. i have permanent bruises from mr.cook stomping on my body. this all was of course "motivation" to get me back to complying. i never did and after 30 days of starving myself sleeping on the concrete floor in my own filth and much much abuse.i was removed and put in a mental hospital. after talking to a girl whod been there during the same time i had, i learned that in order to scare other residents they were told i had died. i could go on and on about all the things that happened to me for hours< they are certainly still vivid in my mind. i now have rheumatoid arthritis from the trauma on my body but it was worth it, id rather die than spend a single day in that place. Im a completely different person coming out of that place than going in. much colder. and it only entirely confirmed my belief that there is no god.i prayed every few minutes everyday for him to save me and they went unheard. in the end i saved myself and it came as a great cost that i will llive with the rest of my life.

If you want to be the subject of gossip and back stabbing then work there. Heather Green tops the list. Confront her or any other senior staff and you'll be treated like dirt then gotten rid of. Yes the abuse and neglect is covered up (of the residents) by Heather as well as many others. Beautiful on the outside ugly inside.

What is the average stay there? I don't possibly see how it could be so horrible with the structure and discipline. That's what individuals need to be successful.

With a post like you just made, I believe anyone can see who pollutes our earth. I grew up on structure and discipline and have grown to be a successful adult. Actually, it plays a very important role in my everyday living. Therefore, I am all for it. I never said I believed in a child being abused. Please read what I posted and quit assuming.
