What's going on with Sorrenson's Ranch??  I tried to get my son in there, but they wouldn't accept him till he had gone to a wilderness program first, for 6 weeks, and then let them know when he was at a wilderness and then go from there.  However, when I called them to say he was at a wilderness, they said they didn't have any space left, as they couldn't hold a spot for him.  I don't think that was a place for my son anyway.

What is Dateline MSNBC going to talk about regarding the Ranch?  Good things or bad?  and why focus on this particular Ranch, when there are hundred's of others out there.

STAY TUNED!  Obviously they're working on a story.

Have you checked ISAC's document files on programs and facilities?

No, it's not WWASPS related that I know of.  At one time, it was related to HIGH TOP though.  Did you check the FORNITS archives?  Seems this program has been discussed before.

From that link.  Is Sorenson's one of PURE's referral programs?  
 :o

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you read the WWASP vs PURE transcript: Sue Scheff testifies about Katie Lank's death at Red Rock, and defends this abusive facility with words to the affect: "Katie didn't die at Red Rock Academy, this girl died AT THE HOSPITAL."
As if it makes any difference exactly where this poor girl drew her last breath of life.

This remark by Scheff makes about as much sense as her testimony about the rape at Sorenson Ranch, when Scheff tries to explain away the rape of a young teenage girl with the words, "....everyone makes mistakes."

Since when is it a "MISTAKE" to rape a child?

Katie Lank slipped and fell down a deep crevice while on a hike with Red Rock Academy.  She suffered severe head injuries and was airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas (I think it was).  She died several days later.

The program (which is now defunct, I believe) was sued by the Lank parents for wrongful death and settled out of court.

The area where the tragedy occurred is NOW off limits to other programs operating in Utah.  It is considered a dangerous hiking area.

What does THAT tell you?  As if falling down a deep crevice isn't proof positive the area is considered not safe for children participating in a wilderness hike?  

Katie was a beautiful girl inside and out and will never be forgotten!

"I think Paula Reeves may want to know about Sorsenson Ranch and the NBC reporter. Maybe Sue Scheff could go on tv and debate Miss Reeves about that place. It would be good!"

Seems Reeves knows a lot about this program that maybe Scheff would nto want to be known.  Sue Scheff makes a lot of referrals for money to Sorsenson.  I remember when Paula was complaining about Sue Scheff.

I'll never understand why programs have to pay for referrals.  Is this true throughout the troubled teens industry?  Are there no laws prohibiting this practice?  It just seems like a definite conflict of interest, IMO.

Do parents who use these referral services know that they may be choosing a program that pays for referrals?  If so, you would think they'd at least question whether that's appropriate in this kind of industry (behavioral healthcare).

Journalists who write about the troubled teen industry should be looking at this issue more closely.  Interview experts from places like Hazleton, AACAP, and other prestigious organizations to see what their policy or opinion is on this issue.

Tell Dateline to contact Maia Szalavitz, the author of Help At Any Cost: How the troubled teen industry cons parents and hurts kids. She would be a good source for information.
