Not evidence-based. Parent-child dynamic between staff and patients There were felons in treatment there who were frightening and menacing towards other patients. Level of staff training inadequate. Just enough knowledge to really do some damage, like the one who practiced the notoriously ineffective and harmful confrontation therapy. Or the one who stated that therapeutic outcomes could not be researched. Some good folks here who are well-intentioned, but program is far from effective, and victims are blamed for treatment failures.
