Kids, young kids were force fed raw chicken, strip searched and kidnapped— all under the guise of therapy and it's 100 % legal. There is an entire industry built on abusing teens that you would not believe happens right here in the United States. It's been dubbed the Troubled Teen Industry which encompasses a wide range of facilities for 'bad kids' including wilderness programs, residential treatment centers, and drug rehab facilities among others. The entire business industry is built atop the vulnerability of the American family.
This book is the culmination of a four year investigation by journalist Andy Hirschfeld. The book explores the real human stories of victims of this industry and the laws that allow these shocking stories to be 100 % legal.
