I am at work right now, but will be emailing you.
Rodney ball? I have talked to him before, and he had always denied it! I am glad justice will be served. What a sick man.

I'm not able to see anything more then comments on here. I recently have had flashbacks of things that I tried to suppress during my time there. That is what caused me to start researching. I had found a forum at one point that had a lot of posts of former students and I cannot find it now. What information are you all looking for? I attended the Desisto school during 1993.

I actually did find the forum thread. It is here. I wish I could say the horrors of the Desisto School were all vicious rumours. Unfortunately the truth is probably worse then what people know.

I get the chills every time I think about that place. Everything is mostly true that happened at that school. I hated that place. It was a crazy mind altering place to be. I'm so glad it is over. It has changed my life forever, and not for the better. It still has me screwed up emotionally. Mentally. It really was hell.

I was tortured here for 7 months after my controlling father sent me here for fighting back at him after he beat my brothers and I for over a decade. Several men would hold would hold me down and pour thorazine down my throat through a turkey baster like instrument. They would confine me in the corner in a room they called "the farm". As my head would bob down someone would come up from behind me and pull my hair or whack my head to keep me from falling asleep. Then before i would fall asleep at night they would drug me once again so that I would not try to get away. I eventually jumped through a window all drugged out on thorazine and had to be hospitalized at which point the people at the hospital in massachusetts pleaded for my mother to take me away, which she finally did. Ironically my father sent me here for taking drugs. I saw other kids there getting drugged with me. I was there in 1997-98ish. There was another kid that jumped out a window before me. They started replacing the broken glass with plexiglass everytime somebody would jump through one. About half the windows were plexiglass. I know there were more. I was at the stockbridge location where Mr. Desisto lived. I was in the shacks behind the mansion. Today, I'm kinda a normal person. I just came across this and i had no idea there was a chat site on this. I want to talk with somebody else that this happened to.

i attended his place in ny...i had the thorazine treatment for awhile.....desisto actually slapped me awake during math class more than once.....i am happy to say...he didn't care for me in the least, i finally refused to attend one of the all night, remove the furniture dorm meetings we had about stealing....i simply went to my bedroom and refused to leave my bed....got expelled off campus for that one. they decided that because we were going on spring break a few days later, they would simply send me then...never told my parents..i did...they didn't believe me,,mom said if i didn't get on the plane, then i was not to come home...so i ran away,,i was 16 at the time..then my life really got crappy for awhile...i believe i am a stronger person for those experiences...but it took so long to undo the bs. now i am trying to find classmates to sort out all the weird junk in my head...yes lets talk about it....email [email protected]

i was an inmate of that fucked up school from 1994-95 and saw many,many,many BAD things go on. The school,and mike desisto himself, prayed on the fact that we were troubled kids and no one would listen to us, or belive us if they did. Myself and about 20 other boys aged 13-16 were confined to the commen area of the "new boys" dorm for 3 days in nothing but our underware, no blankets, no pillows and nothing to eat but 1 small box of dry all-bran for each meal. Oh, but they gave us all the water we wanted, so kind of them.This was our punishment for me staging a quasie revolt, and untill we all sucumbed to the "program" we GOT NOTHING. That is just one of lots of good times I had in my 10 months there. I ran away twice, the 2nd time making it out. Fuck You mike desisto,I told you the first time I met you that you were less then shit on the bottem of my sneakers, and I was right. Rot In Hell

My siter and I were at Desito from 78-81 if you would like to know what it was like before all the crazy stuff, we have all heard about, i would be happy to talk with you. Mine and my siters perspective on Desisito is somewhat different then the other people on this thread. Not saying it was great, i ran away twice.
