Hi everyone! I was in Central Indiana Teen Challenge from March 2010-June 2011. It was HELL ON EARTH! That is one of the most abusive programs EVER! I was forced to wear an orange jumpsuit for weeks, and even had to go in public wearing it. I was put on a "talking fast" where I wasn't allowed to talk to anyone at all for weeks at a time, or I would get punished. I was fed cold beans mixed with cayenne pepper for every meal for multiple weeks. I spent my first night there in leather restraints locked in the "safe room." I had ALL of my belongings taken away multiple times for extended periods of time. I had surgery to have my wisdom teeth taken out, and less than a week afterwards they were making me eat full portions of food and even foods I wasn't supposed to eat, like chips! Then the director lied to my parents about it and said they weren't making me eat like that and that I was lying. They condemned me over and over for being and atheist and wouldn't let me talk to one of my friends there just because she was an atheist too and they said we were leading each other on and making each other stay atheists instead of getting saved. And that's not even all of it! I hate that place and want to get it shut down so no one else has to go there and suffer the abuse! If anyone is interested, I started a Facebook group for everyone who's been abused at CITC, called the CITC 'Reveal The Abuse' Group.

Anyone is welcome to join and talk about the abuse they went through!!

I was in TC in Decatur IL in 2013 but only for 3 days the staff well (Shela) was horrible! They talk a good talk but they can't walk the walk! When I left I felt sorry for the women that I left behind! While I was there I heard stories of a woman comming into TC it was her first day she had several seizures and staff didn't call 911 they just all hovered over her and prayed! She was seizing due to withdraw ! While I was there this same woman who weighed 90 lbs did not eat for the 3 days I was there due to the fact she was cleansing her body for Jesus! I am very surprised more people have not died on there watch! I'm just glad I got out of there before I was brainwashed! I never experienced any physical abuse but I'm sure it happens! They also kept the two thousand dollars that I paid to enter the program! I was only there for 3 days!

Betty and her thugs are absolutely the most frightening people I have ever been around. I can't stand to be within 50 feet of either one of them. Some day, I am afraid they will find bodies in the basement of the the Third Phase Mansion and it will be the story to end all stories! It will be one for the record books.....Betcha'
Where do you live? Help is coming! Please reply with a way I can contact you.

Well, I'm with the author. I am 41. I was in the Indianapolis Tenn Challenge from the age of 14 to 16.5. Before I went in, I was a Christian, that had never done drugs, or been on a date. I didn't smoke ect. My mother who had paid someone to take care of me for years didn't want me back, when the lady was no longer able to take care of me. I was suppose to graduate the program after the first year, but a week before graduation they pulled me into the office, and demoted me saying I didn't raise my hands in church, and they felt I had lust in my heart. I was made to go to churches almost every weekend to "give my testimony" where I was the one behind the pulpit. to raise funds. They even sent my picture out in flyers and such. I was definately exploited, for their financial gains. I also remember scubing the mess hall floor with my tooth brush all night when I first arrived. Or the time I was beaten with a board for telling one of the counselors that I was afraid of one of the girls that was making advances on me. I was told I should be ashamed of myself for thinking someone was gay that just wanted my love. That is until the night they caught her trying to rape me with a knife, and kicked her out. Did they apologise for beating me for trying to come to them for help? No!
After Leaving I never set foot in a church again.
I had gone 3 times a week before going to that place. I choose to have my own relationship with god, and not be told I need to raise my hands, speak in tougnes or be slai in the spirit! So you can knock the author all you want but I was there for two years and I know what I'm talking about! I am 41 and still remember how I suffered in their hands. I would never send a child there. I have two adult daughters and two small step children.
I hope you know about Christie Mussos book . Hope knows your name . Talks about the EVIL BABTIST place . I only wish some of the boys would find this site . I would really like to connect with Carlos Martinez . A so called councilor who to this day I would like to beat his ass again .

Hello Bill. I was there with you . I helped J.R Belote and a few others escape . They went to a judge an the next day the health dept was there . A marion county Judge . Betty hated me . It took thst an catching the boys house on fire to get me the hell out of there . I went to Indiana Boys School . Thank the great spirit . I learned a life long trade while qthere . But I knew of no boy that was happy there . I untied one kid from a bed down in the basement . And Carlos Martinez tryed to kick my ass . Bad move on his part . I hope your life has been a good one . Mine has been spent with faith based dis-trust for any church . They killed my religion .

Jeffery, I do remember one Black boy who was kind to me even though we weren't suppose to talk. He was an artist, at least in my opinion. I asked him to draw me a picture. When the boys program was shut down, the picture was found and given to me. Is this you? Does anyone remember the bus accident that we rolled in a ditch after seeing the men's program in PA. or us climbing in the dark through some caves. The only time the boys and girls touched each other because we had to hold onto the ankle ahead of us. I'm claustrophobia and that touch was the only thing that helped me through that dark cave on our bellies.
