Kruglik would you be so kind and answer this : what was the therapuetic value in making a 15 year old girl(who had curviture of the spine ,a physical condition, that makes it iimpossible to stand up straight) wear a crown of tampoons dipped in ketchup around her head? I witnessed this and to this day I still wonder what was the therapuetic value in this act???

Question for Kruglik and Gottlieb did you really think that you could cure curviture of the spine, a medical condition where it is impossible for a person to stand up straight,thru brutal, out right sick mutipile "general meetings", because you fine administrators of therapy believed that this young woman was copping "attitude" by not standing up straight?

Kruglik did it make you feel good to have a young woman that suffered from curviture of the spine crawl on her stomach to knock on a door , not once ,many ,many times? And my follow up do you still do this to human beings that suffer medical conditions?

Kruglik and Gottlieb we suvivors (and thank God there are many of us and there are many that have died in my opinion for just having come in contact with this place)know that the elan (corporation) school was a criminally,sick barbaricly , insanely,abusive brutal place. Do men feel any guilt or are you such (in my opinion) sick sociopaths that it JUST rolls off your back like water off a duck?

Kruglik and Gottlieb do you think that putting human beings in the corner for 6 to 10 months at a time was giving the parents and insurance companies the best therapuetic bang for their buck? At 54,0000 dollars a year do you think you defrauded parents and insurance companies by this practice?

Gottlieb and Kruglik what can you tell parents to reasure them that there child will not be subjected to bazarre,(in my opinion)criminally insane,sick, barbaricly abusive treatment, and Gottlieb telling us your pat answer "we don't do it that way anymore" isn't going to cut it?

To Kruglik and Gottlieb if you would please answer for the listeners of your (in my opinion) elan shill radio show. From what I witnessed at elan to how you dealt with young girls in my opinion do you consider yourselves to be serial misogynists or do you prefer the general catch all term of, again from what I witnessed and in my opinion supreme sadistic child abusers?

Kruglik and Gottlieb how do you feel that people that graduated from your, in my opinion,physically abusive mind rape mill of a program program,(I hold in my hand a diploma)that many ,many ,many "graduates" consider themselves survivors of elan and not graduates? why do you think that is?

Danny Bennison you were one of the abuser too and still keep contact with Marty and Jeff you brag.

To Those of you posters that have attended this what is apparently a "horror camp"....I am just curious what became of you....and i apoligize if that sounds impersonal...I dont mean it to but I guess I dont really know how to word it. I guess to explain myself a bit....Im guessing that your parents though that by placing you at Elan they thought they were making the right choice for you based on the situation at the time. For example if you were considered a "bad kid" did you leave there changed? I mean did the "bad behavior" that they put you there for change? My sons father went there almost 20 years ago and spoke of the boxing ring but never wanted to talk about his experience any further....I always just thought he was trying to forget. I am in no way trying to make fun or offend anybody at all. I do apoligize if it seems that way....I did the best I could to try and explain myself. And Im sorry for all who have experienced this place and sorry for the kids who will in the future. Isnt there any regulations about this kind of treatment? sounds to me like Hitler runs this place...

I responded to you questions but it did not post and I do noy have time to post another 4000 character resones . no offense is taking from your questions and possibly in the future I will be able to give you answers to your mosdt excellent questions....there is a book called A Life gone Awry : My True Story about the Elan School. It won't answer your question but it will let you know what we went thru. It is by Wayne Kernochan and it is on a public page on Facebook. there are good reasons why your son's Dad doesn't want to talk about it.

"Just Curious",Elan was a scam and it worked well, the long and short is Joe Ricci had allot of political connections and so did his partner Davidson ,so to just shut them down isn't that easy,States have investigated and removed kids over the years but the place continues. Maine I don't think enforces all laws the same or something I don't know,I own a Constuction Co. and do well, and I can answer for some of the people I know from there that they are running along very successful too.All of us there weren't totally crazy, at least when we got there,LOL.But I know that if your sons Father sat and told you stories, you would think was full of shit or had a real bad memory. Maybe even trying to scare you stright, but he is telling the truth,Most would think we got what we had coming as A-Hole kids, and deservingly so,but this place was not a treatment center by any stretch of the imagination.It's one of those Funked Up Hell's like you see in the movies.A place were nothing made scene,and everyone was going 100 miles an hour to stay out of the way. Believe your Sons Father,he has probably only told of the nice parts.

I did kinda think that the few stories he told were exaggerated just for my sympathy...imagine how my heart sank when i read a bit of these posts that as i was reading them i could hear his voice telling me the same story.
I live in Maine and have all my life. It says Im from Sanford but im not.(not sure how to change it but not sure it matters much) Anyways My father lives literally 2 miles from this place. It makes me sick to think that this stuff happens right out our back door. I mean my son is 15 and has some really bad issues i have battled for years but I could never send him to this place....but apparently your parents where "blinded" to the truth. I have visions of 1000's of survivors and anti-elan people just forcing our way in and burning the entire place to the ground....thats just a vision not a threat.
My sons dad has battled many demons both currently and a lot from his past. I have always tried to overlook them and try and understand but i guess there is so much more that i could never understand.
Thanks for the info on the Facebook page. I have read chapter 1 and will read the rest later. Thanks for sharing your stories and lets all hope this place will someday be truely exposed for what it is and no child will have to be tortured again.

Roy, I am balling my eyes out after reading your post and the images you have led me to think about regarding my son. I do have to admit that my son is probably one of the "typical" cases that would be accepted there. He has been a troubled kid for almost all of his life...I am the target of his anger but would never even think about sending him there just based on the info i got from his dad.
I can not speak for anybody else but I do have to admit that the stories I heard were so unbelievable that I really did have many doubts about if they were true. Seriously its like we all think hitler and Sadamm Hussein were horrible people...Well what about our own treating children...people who dont even know what life is about yet....with such abuse that if I got caught "paddling" my dog the way described I would be arrested on the spot...not to mention the story would be the top news story of the day.
I am still absorbing all of this and have a few questions. Does anybody know anybody from Maine who went there and still lives in Maine? Im concerned that I might be told that there is nothing The Police or Sheriff's dept(I think it would be the sheriff's dept for Poland) can do with any info I have because its "hearsay". What about Dept of Human services? Or child protection services? or are out of state kids under different rules than residents of Maine?
Roy I will be able to study your links further a little later but I would like any "legal" info that anybody has as far as the state of Maine.
I can tell u all that my sons dad did not fair too well after Elan...I guess thats why I asked my original question....and I guess I really wondered if anybody was able to be successful after attending Elan....I mean no offense when I say this but it would seem to me that all they "breed" are angry ax-murdering types....ya know how can kids really rebound from that kind of torture and become "normal" people?...I feel so bad for you that went through all this....I REALLY DO!!
