The Legality of Paid "Escort Services"

There is an Online Petition to outlaw the use of escorts transporting minors to residential treatment centers!

Many know this is common in the Troubled Teen Industry, there have been testimonies of kids being taken by escort services hired by their parents to legally kidnap them to an prison-like facility. These kidnapping services are for-profit (sometimes they're from the facility the child is being taken to) and are NOT police officers. They are really huge thugs that will beat up or restrain the child in his/her bedroom in the middle of the night. According to survivors, this was often the most traumatic experience they've had. And the worst thing about these is that it's ALL LEGAL in the United States.

These escorts are NOT legally defined as kidnapping, as the US Kidnapping Statute contains a clause that's frequently overlooked. Stating that a minor has no right go resist such a process as defined by this clause, since children are generally viewed as property of the parents. Meaning the parents have the absolute right to send the kid off as they wish across states and even to foreign countries and get through airport security.

More lawsuits on Dr. Phil and Tierra Blanca Ranch

As many of you know, Dr. Phil has been seen sending troubled teens away to Aspen Education Group facilities for sadistic entertainment. He has even supported escort services to legally kidnap teens to these programs. He is now being sued by a family who's daughter was sent to Island View after appearing on his show was abused at the program.
Aspen is notorious for child abuse in it's behavior modification techniques. These facilities are portrayed exactly as the are on their deceptive websites with the support of Aspens spokesperson Kristen Hayes. According to a LinkedIn profile, Hayes is NOT a licensed mental health profession or educator.  It's noted that even psychologist (even with MD's and Ph.D's) receive kickbacks from such places to send children who need help without concerning the child's safety, well being, or even looking into this as a good fit for his/her particular issues. This is also a common practice with the pharmaceutical companies paying doctors to prescribe certain drugs that can easily make money for them.

Tierra Blanca Boys Ranch also seems to be in even more trouble after a death occurred after more abuse allegations were filed on behalf of the victim. However there are still no criminal charges filed for criminal acts at the ranch as well. Could it be the corruption of law enforcement in these remote areas? These documents of the lawsuits leaked should get the attention of the attorney general instead.

How Parent Manuals are used to keep kids detained in abusive programs

There is another VERY importaint warning sign to look out for too. And that is the "parent manuals" that these programs. These are pamphlets that the program gives out for parents to read if they consider sending their child to such programs. What they REALLY do is throw out a bunch of scare tactics in order to manipulate the parents to keep the child in the program for a long, long time. The parent manuals will prepare the parents for how there child will react when they communicate with them via phone call or letter.

Here is an example of one from Paradise Cove leaked by WWASPS Survivors.
_If you ever see such communication guidelines as depicted in the document link above or something similar, GET YOUR CHILD OUT OF THERE! This is a sign that there is abuse going on and they are trying to cover it up by coercing you not to listen to your child's cries for help and deeming them a manipulator. In the case with one former detainee from Paradise Cove, his parents fell for this tactic and refused to take his complaints seriously. He later turned to crime, and even went as far as hiring a hit man to gun down his own parents for sending him to such a horrific place. He continued this path up until his death from being gunned down by police.

Distinguishing enrollment forms of fraudulent Programs/Schools

In regards to the deceptive marketing and the education consultants, it's seems next to impossible to distinguish the legitimate non-abusive boarding schools from the fraudulent and abusive programs. Many of these programs referred by education consultants appear to be normal college prep schools. Since they are part of the troubled teen industry, they call themselves "therapeutic" boarding schools when they are actually just residential treatment centers. However the abusive programs have content in their enrollment forms that other schools/programs don't have. They have enrollment agreements which states they are not liable for any wrong doing and cannot be sued. This also allows them to re-open under a new name and go unpunished. Read this carefully parents, because this is REALLY A BRIBE!

Below are some examples of waivers that can be seen on the facilities respected websites;

2013 Filled with MORE AMAZING CLOSURES!

As 2013 comes to an end, there have been even more closed programs than previously thought. 2012 however was less exciting with the closures of Escuela Caribe and Cathrine Freer Wilderness to name a few. Family Light reports more on the situation regarding these closures.

 For this year the programs closed in 2013 are as follows:
Academy at Swift River, Talisman (formally New Leaf Academy), Stone Mountain School, Adirondak, and SUWS of Idaho. (Also new word is Horizon Academy in Nevada has closed too!)

 All of which are owned by Aspen Education Group. As you know, AEG is owned by Bain Capital which means that any of these closed facilities are likely to re-open under new names at some point. However, we will track down the people running these places and where they have re-located and the new programs they run. Let's hope to see indefinite closures in 2014 along with convictions.
We need as much support as we can get, because they obviously have too much money to be criminally prosecuted, which is why they continue to abuse children for profit. If the survivor lobby out numbered them in both people and funds, we can put this goose chase to a stop. The first step to this however, is to get money out of politics completely. So many politicians in Washington are heavily invested in this dirty industry.Once this happens, we can do it with your help!
