We believe...

Tenet 1. Families with 'troubled teens' often have other issues that need to be fixed. Any therapy that excuses parents and blames the child may be a fraud.

Tenet 2. Any program referring to 'troubled teens' may be a fraud. Why?

Tenet 3. Any program that rushes you into making a placement decision, may be a fraud.

Tenet 4. Any program that tries to get you to ignore the financial impact of a troubled teen facility may be a fraud.

Tenet 5. Any troubled teen program that advises you to ignore your child's complaints about abuse or injury because your child is trying to 'manipulate' you, is a potentially abusive program.
