All About Receiving Cash continues to use the unlicensed, unregulated private jails known as "recovery homes" that are the hallmark of the Seed/Straight/Kids thought reform program.  The phenomenon is so bizarre, it is difficult to describe.  A hybrid foster home and DIY jail, these homes constitute the residential aspect of AARC, but AARC claims not to require a license as a residential facility as the residences are private homes.  A con from start to finish.  AARC's web page maintains a testimonial from this unfortunate sect member:
http://css.ubc.ca/projects/newcomer-inclusion-project/research-team/

“Recovery homes are an amazing component of the AARC treatment model. When it became time for us to open our host home, AARC provided us with thorough training and checked our house with the utmost care to ensure safety for all. Never once did we feel at risk over the several months that we operated a host home, yet we knew we had the immediate assistance of AARC if any problems did arise, something we never had before coming to AARC. Our daughter was trained as a host home old-comer so she could provide leadership to the new-comer and we all followed very strict rules and protocols. Not only did this provide our daughter with an opportunity to take responsibility, regain health boundaries, and give back to other young people, it once again modelled to new clients that there is a way out of the disease of addiction.”

[Wendy Frisby, Ph.D., AARC Graduate Parent; Professor, University of British Columbia, Chair Women’s and Gender Studies

http://aarc.ab.ca/program/the-program/

This kook's take sums up the fraud that is AARC.  Her testimony refers to her safety while she operates a private jail, with a traumatized alleged addict Oldcomer in charge of some poor bewildered Newcomer who is subjected to the complete destruction of all previously existing social and family bonds. 

M. Frisby didn't seem to want to discuss AARC outside of shilling for the sect:

"Dear M. Frisby,

In light of your endorsement of the Recovery Homes used in lieu of licensed residential facilities by AARC, would you care to comment on this letter written to Dean Vause by Sarah Miller, a former client who is now a lawyer practising in British Columbia.  The letter reads as follows:

'From: Sarah Miller [mai!to:sarahmlllerl010@hotinaU.com]
Sent: Wednesday, March 04, 2009 11: 58 PM
· To: or. D. Vause
• Subject: RE: Homegrown Heroes feature
Dr.Vause,
· I know that you're probably really busy, but l also know that you're aware of why I'd like to talk to you, and it
. seems like you're putting lt off.
I know that Mr.G still works at AARC (albeit being on a short leave of absence). As you know from the
email I sent you three years ago, in which I expressed my concerns about Mr.G - a pedophile~ continuing to
work with young teens at AARC, I'm truly concerned about the safety of your current clients. I know that I
told you three years ago that I would let it go because I had confidence that you would do whatever
necessary to protect the kids at AARC, but I had to convince myself that in order to move on without feeling
guilty.
I believed for a long time that you cared about me. My first reaction to the Fifth Estate was that you ·would
never let a client get hurt or be abused [f you were aware of it But then I started to wonder. I know that you
. knew {at the time) that Mr.G was acting inappropriately with me but you chose to 'sweep it under the rug."
So why would it be any different with Rachel or Christine?
I wanted to talk to you about this on the phone or in person - to ask you why you didn't help me - 'Why you
didn't fire Mr.G and how you could keep him around AARC when he is clearly not capable of providing teens
with appropriate care. I know that you knew what was going on because Mr.G told me when I wass 16 that
you ordered him not to talk to me, and even threatened to fight hirn in the parking lot. But Mr.G continued to
talk to me and it only got more inappropriate. l thought that him and I had a special friendship and dldn't
understand at the time why you were being so mean to him. looking back, I resent you for not pushing
harder. I know he was eventually fired years !ater, after he was caught selling drugs out of the AARC van. If
there was one thing about AARC that never made sense to me, it was the fact that graduates and staff
could be abusive, pedophiles, or otherwise unhealthy or dysfunctional - but as !ong as they were sober. they
were a "success." Despite what Mr.G was doing with me, it wasn't untlf he relapsed that you decided he
wasn't a positive Influence at AARC?
As you know, when Mr.Hagg convinced my parents that I should live with him for a few days, Mr.G was
there every day and after Mr.Hagg had gone to sleep, would cuddle with me, rub my back, tell me that we
should get married one day, cried to me because he was "addicted" to me, totd me I should masterbate,
that he liked small breasts ... How could you know this and continue to let him work with young girls? I had
just tried to kill myself and Mr.G selfishly chose to ignore any sense of responsibility as a counselor. This
affects me still today, and despite going through periods when I should have talked to someone, I have not
and cannot bring myself to trust another counselor. The Dr.Vause I thought was "saving lives and helping
families" wou!d have fired Mr.G on the spot AND Mr.Hagg for his methods of putting young girts on his lap
in his counseling sessions and rocking them "to make them feel safe, like lltt!e girls,' as he explained to me.
I also know of a girl who ls extremely distraught after watching the Fifth Estate and is seeing a psychiatrist
because she was treated even rnore inappropriately by Andrew Morton, her counselor.
Like so many graduates, I am not and never was an addict I had self-esteem and behavioral problems,
which were only worsened from the year and a half of "tough love" I received at AARC. It was not helpful to
be told I was a loser druggie and would die if I ever relapsed. The months following my graduation were
some of the darkest months of my life. I didn't know who I was anymore - my life revolved around a disease
that I didn't have. Despite the fact that I was a brat, I was outgoing and lald back before AARC, But after
AARC, I'd been molded into an awkward girl with the social skills of a seven-year-old, and I had counselors
helping me through it by pretending to be my 'daddy.'
When l abandoned AARC and AA, you convinced my parents to abandon me. Anyone who leaves AA ls
treated like a schizophrenic and ignored because they're 'in denial.' The only time I was ever in denial was
when I believed that you, Mr.G, Mr.Hagg, etc ... knew what was best for me and cared about me. I've had to
work really hard to repair my relationship with my parents after them putting me in the hands of your
unqualified staff and trusting them blindly with my safety. They know now that they were brainwashed to
believe that your staff always knew what was best for me, when in fact, they were doing more harm than
'good.
I've been seriously considering filing a police report against AARC, and specifically Mr.G. l was hoping to
· talk to you before doing so, but If l don't hear from you by the end of the week. I can not let this go and try to
move on without feeling guilt.
What I reaily wanted to ask you was if everything you'd ever told me - about how much you cared about
me, and how special you thought I was -was just a lie. I really wonder if you've been sending me all of
these nice emails to convince me to keep my mouth shut. I'd also really like to know - if I'd talked to Glllian
Findlay about my experience with Mr. G and the fact that you knew, would you have called me a liar too?
' I hope to hear from you (any time) tomorrow.
Sarah'

Various volunteers are looking at Atlantis Leadership academy located in Jamaica. It is run by a Randall Cook, which could be a former WWASP employee who went by the name "Randy Cook" many years ago. His mother published marketing material for WWASP.

More info will follow on this facility located in a unnamed location at Treasure Beach in Jamaica

On August 27, 2007, All About Receiving Cash "graduate" and former Peer Counsellor Andrew Evans murdered Nicole Parisien in an apartment in Kitsilano, BC.  Evans beat and stomped the woman to death.  Evans rolled her body up in a sheet and dumped in some bushes outside the building.  He then telephoned AARC sect leader Dean Vause.  Evans told Vause that he believed that he had killed somebody.  Neither man bothered to call emergency services.  Vause instead advised Evans to head for Calgary.  Evans was able to manage evidence from the crime for hours, and then was provided with AARC's then go-to lawyer, Mark Tyndale.  Evans eventually surrendered to police in Calgary on the night of August 29, 2007. 

Now one has to ask, given that Evan claims to have been not responsible for his actions due to the effects of ecstasy, marijuana and alcohol, why Dean Vause didn't immediately call an ambulance and police for Nicole Parisien.  This is a "man" who claims to save lives, and yet the simplest effort to help Nicole Parisien seemed not to have occurred to the Great Healer.

As with all crimes committed by AARC graduates, and boy, there are a lot of them, the spin was immediately put out that the "disease" was to blame.  Evans' fellow sect members piled onto Facebook gushing praise for the frenzy-killer.  The story was immediately planted in the Vancouver press that Parisien was a sex-trade worker and that Evans had killed her in an incoherent rage after failing to get an erection.  Not much of this story matches the available evidence.  Evans was clearly in control of his actions.  He stole a hooded sweatshirt from the apartment to obscure his face, and attempted to expunge evidence from the scene.  He managed to contact the Wiz in his alleged deranged state, and he made out for cowtown like a scalded ape.

According to the records I have seen, Evans did not complete any of his work programs while incarcerated, until he began using the good ol' Stepcraft to minister to fellow inmates.  There is no evidence that Evans underwent any psychological treatment in prison, although he apparently spoke to the Wiz on the phone once a week.  At his parole hearing Evans expressed disdain for Parisien's "lifestyle", quite rich coming from a guy who claims to have been buying hookers and who then nearly decapitated a woman in a violent murder. 

The Wiz attended Evans' parole hearing, and vouched for him being just a super guy but one who suffers from that awful disease.  And with that, Evans was released, returned to Calgary, and went back into All About Receiving Cash.  I have not confirmed whether he went back to the adolescent program as a thirty-two-year-old client, or if he was just one more super-qualified staff member.

Here is an excerpt from the hearing regarding admission of evidence in Evans's trial.  The statements about Evans' demeanor with police are quite apalling.  He has just finished stomping and pulverizing a woman almost to decapitation, and he is joking with police and engaging in banal chat.  Does that seem like a man overwhelmed with remorse and facing the gravity of a heinous crime?

"Again, Mr. Evans’ response was, “No comment at this point.”  There followed quite an animated discussion about Mr. Evans’ involvement in soccer as a member of the UBC Thunderbirds, facilities at the UBC campus, and other matters completely unrelated to the index offence"
https://www.canlii.org/en/bc/bcsc/doc/2009/2009bcsc1615/2009bcsc1615.html?searchUrlHash=AAAAAQAMYW5kcmV3IGV2YW5zAAAAAAE&resultIndex=1

Now keep in mind that Tyndale apparently advised Evans and the police that a manslaughter charge could be in order.  This apparently because Evans was too deranged to form intent.  Does Evans capacity to recount the circumstances of the murder jive with Tyndale's proposed tactic:

"On Sunday, August 26, Mr. Evans picked up a case of beer and took it to his apartment. He drank a few. He also consumed some hash. He was invited over to the apartment of acquaintances where he had a small amount of the drug “Ecstasy” and two stiff drinks of hard liquor. The group of friends then went to the Roxy Nightclub. Mr. Evans said he was by then quite drunk. At the Roxy, he drank approximately seven more beer. Sometime after midnight, he decided he had to go home because he was too drunk to remain there. He hailed a cab. On his way home, he decided to stop at a confectionary near his apartment to buy cigarettes. When he went into the confectionary, he saw there was Internet access. He went onto Craigslist to the erotic services pages and obtained some numbers of women in the sex trade. He phoned a couple of the numbers and made arrangements to see two different women.
[37]           He then went to his apartment building just a few blocks away. He could not remember whether he actually entered his apartment. Another cab picked him up and took him to an apartment building at 1450 Chestnut Street, which was only a few minutes’ drive away. He recalled ringing a bell to an apartment and eventually being let into the building. He proceeded to apartment 517, Nicole Parisien’s apartment.
[38]           Ms. Parisien greeted Mr. Evans at the door. He gave her $200. The apartment was a one-bedroom apartment. Ms. Parisien was partly clothed. She invited Mr. Evans to undress. They both went into the bedroom located down a short hallway off the living room area. Mr. Evans described the bedroom, the bed, and the bedding. He recalled Ms. Parisien putting a condom on him."

I was in contact many years ago with a reporter who put out one of the first stories that sold the Evans version of events.  I asked her if someone had provided her with these details and whether or not she was told how to formulate the story.  She replied, without question, in the affirmative.

This is important, because apparently Evans defence felt that it was necessary to paint Parisien as somehow not necessarily worthy of the same consideration as any other human being:

"[107]      Although this evidence is not being tendered for a hearsay purpose, defence counsel objects to its admission on the basis that its prejudicial effect outweighs its probative value. The tendency, he argued, will be for the jury to take from the evidence that Ms. Parisien was a good person who had turned her life around only to be killed by the accused."

What reasonable person would accept the idea of putting Evans back in AARC with kids as young as thirteen?  And what reasonable person would look at the Wiz's willingness to simply ignore the plight of Nicole Parisien while managing the terms of surrender of the AARC accountant's son?

The single biggest lie at the core of the All About Receiving Cash fraud is the myth of deadly teenage addiction.  Here are a few examples of this rubbish:

"As stated by a local medical doctor, Dr. Alan Stanhope, M.D. of Calgary, who provides medical care for clients at AARC, “Children are dying on the streets of Calgary, and a program such as this (AARC) will unquestionably save lives.”
http://www.aarc.ab.ca/AARCs_role_in_treatment.html

"Ben Goresky wrote
at 7:11pm on October 11th, 2007
'I can tell you exactly why anybody would let Dr. Vause (or Mr. Vause at the time) open a place without "proper qualifications". Desperation. Parents were watching their children die, and have their lives destroyed by drugs and alcohol. They were desperate. In fact, it is my understanding that they had to fly Dr. Vause in from Vancouver 3 times before he agreed to open a center.'"

"I have reviewed the material you sent and have certainly concerns about the policies and procedures at AARC which I am now pursuing. I will be discussing it with various people in the addictions/mental health field so I have not ignored this new information.
I also have several people in my immediate circle who believe their child's life was hanging by a thread and was saved. This is not a 'black and white' issue."

AARC's slogan "Helping Teens Reach Their Twenties" is a howling example of this bullshit.  AARC has always taken in adults.  Poor old Scott Fowkes went back in at thirty or so, David Grant was at least twenty-two, Natalie Oldcomer was well past the age of majority, and AARC's graduate number one was twenty-two when he ended up in AARC in lieu of proper mental health treatment.

These young adults make great converts to the sect.  They end up in AARC because they're alienated, and AARC gives them a brand new identity and a sacred purpose.  The problem however, is that there aren't enough of these people who willingly subject themselves to AARC's indoctrination.  From the outset, the Wiz has taken children and put them through the same thought reform process as the adults who willingly join the sect.  Unforunately, these young people suffer immense psychological harm from the process of deconstructing their personalities and their social structures.

AARC was established as a Kids franchise because the Alberta Government was paying for parents to send young adults from Calgary down to Miller Newton's institutional fraud.  These people loved what Newton was selling, and they wanted it up here.  What Newton was selling them was freedom from responsiblity for their malfunctioning adult children.  I went to high school with two of the forty Canadians sent to Kids.  Both were over twenty-one when they went to New Jersey, and both were sent to Kids to deal with eating disorders and behavioural issues. 

There were only two kids from my high school who died during adolescence.  One was thrown from a horse during an equestrian event, and the other died from a head injury incurred while attempting to rescue a drowning victim in a river.  The latter, ironically enough, had been expelled from the exclusive Brentwood private school for bringing hash on a rugby tour to the UK. 

In twenty-six years, AARC has graduated an average of twenty-five people per year.  Despite years of ridiculous claims that AARC's cutting edge "treatment" produces miraculous cures for drug addicts, in order to make up these paltry numbers AARC has had to take in people from across Western Canada, from twelve-year-old children to full-grown adults in their twenties and thirties.    AARC had to have a dangerous kook like Cooke-Stanhope sending kids from her courtroom to AARC, and AARC took in people that no reasonable person could claim were addicts.  It's all about the numbers, which is why part of the AARC survivor's new identity is their graduation number.

We had no epidemic of dead teen addicts in Calgary before AARC came, but there sure are a lot of prematurely dead men who have been through AARC's phoney "addiction treatment".

News Items / Various testimonies about Circle of Hope Boarding School
« Last post by Oscar on June 05, 2018, 02:51:46 AM »
Found those testimonies below on this page from Complaintboards:

Quote from: lisharayanne
I went to this boarding school for 15 months, I finally convinced my parents I needed out of this place. Boyd would minipulate the girls not to tell the social workers what was really going on and if we did and we didnt win the case the girls that told the truth would get punished! Or put a black shirt which means you get treated lower and fed less, girls got there faces shoved in puke. Grantid they puked cuase they were being restained for over 3 hours. Boyd spit in the girls faces while he was an inch away screaming at them. (considered murder cuase you can get aids through saliva) a married staff member had sex with one of the girls there and boyd and steph told the girls not to say a word about it and that they took care of it and all parents were notified no parents were notified. A 9 year old was forced to eat huge amounts of food just becuase she was still hungry. We did not get fed enough, I was on the wall for god knows what and I was given a plate of bones with barely any chicken meet on them and steph was serving the food. I remember. And I barely got fed. If you asked for more food you got push ups and got made fun of. Girls got scared to ask. If girls that are in there now say anything boyd and steph will make things harder on you. And shove all of the things you tell your rents or s. S in your face and make your life there hell. We wore dirty underwear and clothes we looked dirty and gross, I had self asteem issues but that was the "purpose" I guess to not feel like a women and feel like the worst thing ever. We worked alot I lost so much weight being there, hardly sleeping, hardly eating, and working way too much, then there was the excersizes you had to do for behavior, you had to keep working till you passed out and we got put in push up position till our fingers were numb and out back was aching, and if we didnt keep our back straight the whole time we were put there longer. 5 minute showers, 1 minute to undress, 3 minutes to clean yourself, 1 minute to dress. Bad hegeine. Were teens not in the #ing military. We didnt ask for this. We got like 2 minutes to take a flippin #. We hardly ate. How in the hell are we gonna take a huge enough # for these ppl? And if it was big enough we had to take medomulso or whatever < (I loled.) I was depressed the whole time and if you showed any sign of depression you got push ups for now being "happy" and docked down shirts cuase you werent "right with god" well boyd and steph your not right with god. Who treats teenagers like this? Not even your own kids wanna follow your footsteps. Jesus. I attempted suicide in church I tryd suffercating myself I could not handle it. Im 18 now I got there when I was 14 and out when I was 16, im still phycologically damaged from it. Girls got brainwashed. Look media if you want a good story. Talk to the girls who know whats really going on. Girls went hungry and that place just disgusts me. I feel really bad for the girls that are there now. Noone should have to go through that. And also there education system was a jjokee I was in the 9th grade and they put me in like 5th grade, I had no high school credits when I got out. They also try to brainwash the girls into stayin there forever and thats the "best thing". This is not the next best option for your children, disipline your own kids, understand your teens and be a flippin parent.

Quote from: Autumn Ice
I can personally say from experience that this boarding school is as horrible as she explains it! I remember when I first got there, they treated me like I was one of their own, and then I started making the tiniest of mistakes and they started treating me like [censored]. I was sent there in july of 2017 as a 13 year old girl, and got out december of 2017 as a 14 year old girl. I have always had a difficult time remembering things, especially long paragraphs, even chapters in any kind of book of any sort, and they forced the girls to memorize colossians chapter 3, ephesians chapter 6, philippians chapter 4, and all 176 verses of psalms 119, and if we didn't have them memorized within three months of being there, we were forced to stand on the wall and read them over and over again until we memorized them. my name is autumn ice and unlike whoever this mallory girl is, i'm sorry, you need to learn the difference between good people and abusive people who even their own kids are disgusted by them!! boyd and stephanie householder, i'm calling you out!!! I lost so much weight during my 5 month stay at this wretched ranch you guys call a "place of god"!! I have seen the light now, and am now living the life of an lds (the church of jesus christ of the latter day saints) girl!!! I have never met such horrid people! boyd once had me convinced he was actually trying to help, but as I drove home, my step-mother was explaining how he was claiming they hadn't payed anything for the 5 months I was there!!! all I could think was, "that little liar!!! trying to scam my parents out of money that they needed to keep my older sister able to do the things she wanted to do!" I was livid!! and may I add, since I left, i've been doing some research on this place, and if I may recall seeing, boyd and stephanie householder are not licensed to teach or counsel students!!! as stated by the state of missouri, they have no record of a circle of hope girls ranch and boarding school in their files!!! that got me even more interested, so I dove deeper into my research, and lo behold, in about 2010 I believe it said, a girl went missing from circle of hope and hasn't been seen since. how about you explain that one to me, mallory, huh? I boldly remember being forced to work outside as a black shirt while the other girls got nice warm showers, and then after everyone else was done taking showers, was then allowed to go inside, change out of my smelly, dirty, sweaty work clothes, and given a barely luke warm five minute shower, then expected to work while the other girls enjoyed reading along with their bibles while listening to fun and inspiring devotionals, and when we were done eating that stuff they claimed to our parents was "healthy" food, we were forced as black shirts to place our hands flat on the table because we "couldn't be trusted". I have never seen so many girls act so fake to get out of a place that was supposed to help them. and oh dear god, if we spoke the truth about what was really going on in a letter, or a phone call, the letter was ripped up, or thrown away or the phone was hung up by whatever supervisor was listening to our conversation with our family, which in all honesty should be private in my opinion. within my first week, we were weed eating on the side of the road, and the girls who weren't doing the weed eating, were expected to rake up whatever was tossed about and chopped up by the weed eater, and guess what? no water break for two hours straight!!! and if we asked for one, we were given push-ups or up downs, even if we knew it was past the hour limit for a water break. the policy is supposed to be, a water break every hour on the hour, and a bathroom break every two hours on the hour. when I mentioned to my parents that I was afraid I would be judged based on my scars, which were from self-mutilation, boyd mocked me in front of all the girls, pointing out that there were other girls there with worse scars. it's not like I didn't realize that already, because thank you boyd, but I do have two eyes, that can see perfectly fine on their own, they don't need your guidance to see things, because I had taken notice to things like that. more than once I wanted to attempt to get a message across to my parents that I was going to attempt suicide, at this point I didn't really know how I was going to [censored], but I was gonna go through any measure possible to free myself from that hellhole! even if that meant going to literal hell, I was willing enough!! more than once I was convinced that I wasn't ever going to amount to anything in life, and from then on, i've actually believed that statement. now I always wonder why i'm such a [censored] up, and how I ended up in that place! I was restrained for about an hour based on my lack of being able to handle a workout in my first month, boyd pressed his fingers into the back of my jaw, right around my ear area and left a bruise. I fell asleep crying that night due to the pain, I curled up in a little ball and cried until there were no more tears left to cry in my eyes. I highly suggest finding a way to shut this place down before it has a chance to hurt more girls!! why am I not doing it myself you may ask, because therefore I am a minor and cannot legally file a lawsuit against them in any means, but plan on it when I become an adult. the school they claim they provide should belong in a barrel and burned to the ground, because it's complete [censored]!!! if there really was a schooling to place in that barrel, because if there was a chance of being able to do that, the chances are slim to none, because the schooling part of the "boarding school" barely exists!!! I don't know how these girls are handling it now, but I hope that one day, boyd and stephanie see the real consequences behind not the girl's actions, but their own actions. no, i'm not saying the girls there were perfect little angels that didn't deserve to be there, not by a long shot, because even I will admit, I deserved to be there, but whether or not I deserved to be there isn't the issue at hand at this current moment, now is it? no, it isn't. my point is, the girls there now, and myself don't and never will deserve to be treated the way boyd and stephanie householder treat them, and myself when I attended the place. i'm sick of people defending the place, even when they went there themselves and have witnessed the way they treat those girls!!! after this, i'm gonna go find some more things to research them on! in a place like this, you never know how many secrets it may hold, i'm out for now, if you have any questions regarding my experience with coh, please contact me at westcoastbae2003@gmail, com

Quote from: karli.chambers
First let me start by saying this. if you weren’t there, or in the persons shoes that comments, then get off their case. there’s nothing like the feeling of being acused of being a liar. I was at that place for 2 years, 6 months of the 24 I was taken advantage of by boyd. he used me for sexual pleasure, and didn’t care that each step he took he was proving himself to be a hypocrite.in the beginning I stood up for him, thinking that he wasn’t that kind of man. but time revealed his true colors. he told me in the beginning that if I ever told anyone he would call me a liar. he did, and he turned white as a sheet and refused to look me in the eyes because he knew he was wrong. the first things out of his mouth were, “she can’t stay here, ” which obviously something that a guilty person would say. stephanie got in my face telling me that it wasn’t possible, but like I said you can’t throw that at someone especially when she wasn’t even there to witness it. I was so close to punching her square between the eyes if she would have laid a finger on me. but she was smart enough that if she did it would have been used against her when I talked to investigators. sorry [censored], you can’t make up a 6 page statement of everything that went on in 1 night. they said that the only reason why I said anything was because I “got into trouble, ” okay, but you aren’t even looking at my perspective. the reason why I couldn’t keep it quiet anymore was because I was tired of him treating me one way during the meetings and embarrassing me in front of the girls and a completely different way when I was alone with him down the hall. I was his secretary. they’ll use the excuse, its policy you cant be anywhere with a male staff without 3 other girls with you, or at least a third. well you all are full of [censored] because I was allowed down the hall by myself with him because I worked in his office. and you can’t say that brandy isn’t ever alone down the hall with him either ;) so all you girls saying that the householders are good people and that they would never do anything to hurt the girls, you are going only off of what you went through while you were there, so grow up and have some empathy. all of this will catch up to the householders, even if it’s when they die.

Biblical Reform School Discipline: Tough Love or Abuse?
By SUSAN DONALDSON JAMES, April 12, 2011/i]

Anne's rebellion against her large Christian family -- she was one of 10 children -- began after she was gang-raped last year while jogging in her Maryland neighborhood.

"Because of that the trauma, she started spiraling in every way possible," said her mother, Jeannie Marie, who did not want their last name made public.

Anne, now 18, said she numbed the pain with drinking and rebellion, which terrified her mother.

Desperate, Jeannie Marie turned to her church for help, learning about a Christian reform school that she says promised to "get right" her wayward daughter.

But neither was prepared for the ordeal they say Anne experienced from November to January of this year at New Beginnings Girls Academy, an Independent Fundamental Baptist boarding school in La Russell, Mo.

The school, according to its website, serves troubled teens so "through Jesus Christ, they can overcome their addictions, mend their broken relationships and get their lives on the right path."

Instead, Anne said she was told the rape was her fault and was subjected to harsh discipline -- ridiculed, restrained and deprived of proper nutrition and adequate clothing.

As punishment for misbehaving she says she was forced to wear a red shirt and stand facing a wall, sometimes for 8 to 10 hours a day with only 15-minute breaks for food. "I was so achy it hurt," said Anne.

She said toilet paper and sanitary pads were rationed, despite Anne's urinary problems after the rape. She also said no one offered to get her medical care.

"We thought maybe Anne would go there and hide out and pull herself together," said Jeannie Marie. "We thought it was a safe place to go and we wouldn't have to worry...We trusted our church."

Anne left the school in January, but said the punitive approach left her with no self-worth and anxiety attacks so bad she cannot breathe.

New Beginnings charges $10,300 a year, according to its admission application. On a signed form, parents agree to "corporal discipline," which is spelled out in their mission statement as up to 15 "swats" with a wooden paddle in each 24-hour period for misbehavior.

The school's mission also prohibits, "bringing civil lawsuits against other Christians or the church to resolve personal disputes."

Submission and obedience -- children to parents, wives to husbands and parishioners to "God's people," pastors and deacons -- are the tenets of Christian fundamentalism, according to Kathryn Joyce, author of Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement."

"These groups know what the outside world thinks of them and that some of it is considered abuse, but they consider it Biblical," said Joyce.

Missouri does not require its faith-based facilities to get a license and the state attorney general, "does not have any authority over them," according to AG spokeswoman Nanci Gonder. If there are allegations of physical abuse, parents are told to contact law enforcement.

Similarly, neither the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education nor the state board of education regulates or monitors faith-based schools under the home schooling law.

The Department of Social Services said the schools were not within their purview and only allegations of abuse and neglect that "meet statutory definition," are investigated.

The federal government, however, has shown concern about teen residential programs -- not all of them faith based -- and has pushed for more regulation.

In 2008, an investigation by the federal Government Accountability Office revealed thousands of cases and allegations of child abuse and neglect since the early 1990s at teen residential programs throughout the country. The report also found major gaps in licensing and oversight.

The report found untrained staff, ineffective management and operating practices in these facilities.

"In the most egregious cases of death and abuse, the cases exposed problems with the entire operation of the program," according to the report.

Congressman George Miller, D-California, introduced the Stop Child Abuse in Residential Programs for Teens Act of 2009 to establish minimum health and safety standards, but although the bill twice passed the House, both times it failed in the Senate.

"You can't deprive kids of food and water," one Democratic aide to Miller told ABCNews.com. "You have to treat them humanely."

Just last year in Hiland Park, Fla., police removed 17 children from Heritage Boys Academy, a military school that taught fundamental Christian doctrine, arresting three, including the pastor, and shut down the facility.

Child welfare authorities said the children were often hit with sticks that were "nine fists long," and were sometimes choked or held down and beaten with fists.

The school officials plead not guilty to one charge of aggravated assault and five charges of child abuse, but the case has not yet gone to trial. A motion by the defense to dismiss is being heard on Friday, according to the clerk for the Bay County Courts..

Well-Dressed Girls Testified They Were 'Saved'

Anne's mother said she first heard a New Beginnings presentation at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Churchville, Md. There, according to Jeannie Marie, neatly dressed girls confessed to bad behaviors and cried that they had been "saved."

"They told us it was a place that helps girls grow in their Christianity in a new life with Christ," she said.

She handed Anne over to school authorities while New Beginnings was on a fundraising tour in Virginia. "It really took me by surprise," said Anne, who thought she was going on vacation. "I freaked out and balled my eyes out."

The first night Anne said she slept on a church pew and was punished for cussing when she fell off and hit her head on a hymnal.

But when the group returned to their Missouri campus, Anne said the house was frigidly cold and girls were given only skirts and light sweatshirts.

The food -- often bologna on white bread, watered-down milk and canned eggs -- was either rationed or loaded on the plate, depending on the whim of the staff, she said.

Girls were told to keep monotone voices and never to talk to each other. Phone calls and letters were monitored, she said.

"They said I am bad and God doesn't love me," said Anne. "I was taught the exact opposite of that in the home. It was hard to believe that these people actually cared about me. You had to fend for yourself."

Two months later, after a dispute with school officials about the costs, Jeannie Marie said she withdrew Anne. When she arrived at New Beginnings, she said she was horrified by what she saw.

"She looked like the most pitiful thing standing in the little snow boots I bought her -- mud-covered with a thin skirt covering her knees with dirt on it...Her face was ghostly white, her eyes bugged out and hair was pulled back. My tiny girl had a horrible look on her face...the most awful expression I have ever seen on the face of my children. I gasped and held my breath."

Jeannie Marie said that when she held her daughter, "she was so weak and faint...and her body went limp. There was nothing left to her."

She said her former pastor at Tabernacle Baptist, Don Martin, had recommended the school as successful, but it was not as advertised.

Martin said that a previous pastor had financially supported the school in the past, but he never made such claims to Anne's mother.

"If someone in our congregation did, that's another thing," he said.

"As far as I know, they come highly recommended," Martin said of the school. "I know they have to be strict -- or it doesn't do much good to send wayward ladies to a school. But I don't know how strict or what they do."

He said allegations of physical punishment in these IFB reform schools were "pretty much nonsense" and the family's claims were "fabrications."

"My sense is people send children there and they want them to come back as model citizens, and if something goes wrong, they want to blame the school. I think they tried to help, but that doesn't mean a thing if there is not good support."

William McNamara, New Beginnings' director, refused to answer questions about the program and allegations that it was abusive.

"We love them," he said of the students. "I cannot speak to any of those things -- the truth will be known."

He referred ABCNews.com to his lawyer, Wes Barnum, who did not respond to written questions sent by email or a follow-up telephone call.

New Beginnings began as the Rebekah Home for Girls in Corpus Christie, Texas, in 1968, but was shut down by the state in 1985 after numerous investigations of abuse and its refusal to submit to state licensing.

Under changing names, the school moved temporarily to Devil's Elbow, Mo., before relocating in Pace, Fla., and eventually to its present home in La Russell, Mo.

The school was run by Lester Roloff, an independent fundamental Baptist preacher who broke from the Southern Baptist Convention in 1954 and founded a series of reform facilities, known as Roloff Homes, for what he called, "parent-hating, Satan-worshiping, dope-taking immoral boys and girls," according to a 2000 investigative report in Texas Monthly.

His antidote to these rebellious teens was anchored in scripture and included kneeling on hard floors, physical punishment with paddles or leather straps or the "dreaded 'look-up,' an isolation room where Roloff's sermons were played for days on end," said the magazine.

Roloff died in a plane crash in 1982, but his ministry still exists in adult programs as part of the People's Baptist Church in Texas and other adult facilities around the country.

"We do not tolerate child abuse of any form," said August Rosado, a spokesman for Roloff Homes.

He said the Texas church was no longer affiliated with New Beginnings and now serves only adults who are struggling with addiction.

Some Former Students Report Post-Traumatic Stress
Brittany Campbell, now 25, says she was at Rebekah through its transition to New Beginnings from 2001 to 2005. The school moved to Missouri in 2007.

She showed ABCNews.com photos of the name changes from Rebekah Home for Girls to New Beginnings Rebekah Academy to New Beginnings Girls Academy.

Campbell said McNamara was in charge during that period. When ABCNews.com called him to ask about charges of abuse at the school, he would only say, "I cannot speak to any of those things -- the truth will be known."

Campbell had grown up in foster care, but went to live with her sister, who was a recent IFB convert.

At 15, after rebelling against the Christian household -- listening to secular music and wearing black -- she said she was sent to reform school.

"It was brutally psychologically and physically abusive," she said of both the Missouri and Florida programs.

"The worst part personally was during the first year through the process of breaking you down and getting you to submit to their way of life," she said.

Campbell said the staff pitted girls against girls, often having them pinned down by their peers for discipline -- "a tool to discourage camaraderie."

Cut off from family and friends for so long, Campbell said she had a hard transition back to the real world.

Today, Campbell lives in Massachusetts and is administrator of a Facebook group, NBGA: Proactive Survivors of New Beginnings Girls Academy, which has 65 members and writes a blog.

She is also the administrator of SIA-NOW, an organization that is planning a convention of participants of these boarding schools next year. Campbell said many of them reported post-traumatic stress disorder after their school experiences.

It was websites like those that Donna Maddox said caught her attention three months after she sent her 15-year-old daughter Kelsey to Circle of Hope Ranch in Humansville, Mo., in 2007, then returned to "rescue" her.

Maddox, 42, said she was hesitant to believe Kelsey's claims of abuse at the school, but saw testimonies from former students that scared her.

"We were told everything we wanted to hear, but nothing was as it was portrayed."

She provided ABCNews.com with photos of dirty facilities, beds made only of plywood with a thin foam cover and bruises on her daughter's feet from working the ranch in shoes so old the soles were tearing away.

She said the school charged $300 in uniform fees.

Desperate Parents Look to Church For Help

Previously, Kelsey had been a good student, but was sent away because she began "getting involved in the wrong crowd," according to Maddox.

"I was really scared because my family has a history of abusing drugs and alcohol," she said. "I had seen so many horrendous things and how it tears up a family and I didn't want it to happen to one of my children."

Maddox found the school on the Internet and said a referral agency backed up their claims.

But Kelsey, now 18, said that from day one, she "felt like a slave."

"Every day I would wake up at 4 or 5 and start working the farm feeding animals, picking up the hay in barbed wire and walking five miles so you can make more money. I never did any school work."

Once, she said she was forced to do hundreds of push-ups and failed. As punishment, she said eight girls were told to jump on her and restrain her, smashing her face into the carpet.

After she returned home with her school books, Maddox said only 18 pages had been completed in three months.

"It is unimaginable in America," she said.

The director, Boyd C. Householder, said his lawyer advised him not to talk to reporters by telephone.

"We've been allegated on like most faith-based places and investigations have had no findings to the allegations," he said. "We have nothing to hide. We are up front and open and you are welcome to come to the property."

His lawyer Jay M. Kirksey later responded by email, saying the Maddox family were "bias[ed] and lacking credibility."

"There are unfortunately, disgruntled parents who address the school, instead of their children, in the private sector just as exists in the public school system," Kirksey wrote.

Shortly after Kelsey returned home, she moved away, but her mother said she calls and emails daily.

"This has been a living nightmare," Maddox, who subsequently called the attorney general with her consumer complaints about deceptive marketing.

"We have been trying to mediate (her) complaints," said Gonder, from the Missouri Attorney General Office. "The school has been cooperating in providing information, but their information is different from hers. Our efforts are ongoing."

Troubled teens often don't speak up for themselves, said another activist, Michele Ulriksen Tresler, who wrote a book, Reform at Victory Christian Academy," chronicling her own experience at the IFB school.

"They are called liars because they are labeled rebellious teenagers," said Tresler. "We had drug addicts, prostitutes and alcoholics among regular girls who didn't belong there, dabbling in regular teen rebellion. There were girls with some major issues who should have been in a place that helped them and giving them tools to have social skills. But when they go to the cops, no one believes them."

Tresler died of a drug overdose on March 17, just weeks after this interview. According to her ex- husband, Robert Ulricksen, "VCA was a demon that haunted her for many years."

Victory, run by Roloff disciple Mike Palmer, was shut down by California authorities after a student death in 1991. Palmer went on to run schools in Mexico and Florida that were also shut down.

As for Anne, she said she is now seeing a counselor and said she, too, has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress.

"She is doing terrible," said her mother. "She has no self-worth. They had her say a hundred times that she was the daughter of the devil with the tongue of the devil -- crazy destructive talk at New Beginnings. Now, I think she actually believes it."

Jeannie Marie has stopped going to the church she said "deceived" her.

"I did not lose my faith," she said. "But I know that many of these little girls will be terribly challenged to remember who God is, after this experience."

Calgary Police Service has a long and shameful relationship with the All About Receiving Cash sect.  Chiefs from the fascist Beaton through corporate drug dealer Hanson to the new boss Chaffin have publicly supported the cult.  This seems to explain to some extent the criminal behaviour of the late Detective David Rock in helping AARC to cover up the systematic abuse that makes up AARC's thought reform program.  Rock colluded directly with sect leader Dean Vause in order to assist AARC in the lawsuits used to silence Christine Lunn and Rachael O'neill.  Unfortunatley for Rock however, after he thought he had completed his services to AARC, he was confronted with yet another victim of AARC's merry band of perverts.  This woman did not appear on the CBC program, which unfortunatlely for Rock, did not fit with the Wiz's phoney allegation that a band of junkies were conspiring to slander his ill-gotten good name in order to shake down AARC for some of the Wiz's hard-earned and likely off-shored loot.  Rock was dead at 46 within a few days of interviewin this woman.  I was privy to a recording made of the Wiz's response to this letter, and I must say, he is possessed of a remarkable skill.  In this converstaion he managed to lie so much that he assumed three contradictory positions, a truly amazing feat.  It reminded me of seeing the Reverend Al Sharpton executive a 720 degree spin in mid-air.

· To: or. D. Vause
• Subject: RE: Homegrown Heroes feature
Dr.Vause,
· I know that you're probably really busy, but l also know that you're aware of why I'd like to talk to you, and it
. seems like you're putting lt off.
I know that Mr.G still works at AARC (albeit being on a short leave of absence). As you know from the
email I sent you three years ago, in which I expressed my concerns about Mr.G - a pedophile~ continuing to
work with young teens at AARC, I'm truly concerned about the safety of your current clients. I know that I
told you three years ago that I would let it go because I had confidence that you would do whatever
necessary to protect the kids at AARC, but I had to convince myself that in order to move on without feeling
guilty.
I believed for a long time that you cared about me. My first reaction to the Fifth Estate was that you ·would
never let a client get hurt or be abused [f you were aware of it But then I started to wonder. I know that you
. knew {at the time) that Mr.G was acting inappropriately with me but you chose to 'sweep it under the rug."
So why would it be any different with Rachel or Christine?
I wanted to talk to you about this on the phone or in person - to ask you why you didn't help me - 'Why you
didn't fire Mr.G and how you could keep him around AARC when he is clearly not capable of providing teens
with appropriate care. I know that you knew what was going on because Mr.G told me when I wass 16 that
you ordered him not to talk to me, and even threatened to fight hirn in the parking lot. But Mr.G continued to
talk to me and it only got more inappropriate. l thought that him and I had a special friendship and dldn't
understand at the time why you were being so mean to him. looking back, I resent you for not pushing
harder. I know he was eventually fired years !ater, after he was caught selling drugs out of the AARC van. If
there was one thing about AARC that never made sense to me, it was the fact that graduates and staff
could be abusive, pedophiles, or otherwise unhealthy or dysfunctional - but as !ong as they were sober. they
were a "success." Despite what Mr.G was doing with me, it wasn't untlf he relapsed that you decided he
wasn't a positive Influence at AARC?
As you know, when Mr.Hagg convinced my parents that I should live with him for a few days, Mr.G was
there every day and after Mr.Hagg had gone to sleep, would cuddle with me, rub my back, tell me that we
should get married one day, cried to me because he was "addicted" to me, totd me I should masterbate,
that he liked small breasts ... How could you know this and continue to let him work with young girls? I had
just tried to kill myself and Mr.G selfishly chose to ignore any sense of responsibility as a counselor. This
affects me still today, and despite going through periods when I should have talked to someone, I have not
and cannot bring myself to trust another counselor. The Dr.Vause I thought was "saving lives and helping
families" wou!d have fired Mr.G on the spot AND Mr.Hagg for his methods of putting young girts on his lap
in his counseling sessions and rocking them "to make them feel safe, like lltt!e girls,' as he explained to me.
I also know of a girl who ls extremely distraught after watching the Fifth Estate and is seeing a psychiatrist
because she was treated even rnore inappropriately by Andrew Morton, her counselor.
Like so many graduates, I am not and never was an addict I had self-esteem and behavioral problems,
which were only worsened from the year and a half of "tough love" I received at AARC. It was not helpful to
be told I was a loser druggie and would die if I ever relapsed. The months following my graduation were
some of the darkest months of my life. I didn't know who I was anymore - my life revolved around a disease
that I didn't have. Despite the fact that I was a brat, I was outgoing and lald back before AARC, But after
AARC, I'd been molded into an awkward girl with the social skills of a seven-year-old, and I had counselors
helping me through it by pretending to be my 'daddy.'
When l abandoned AARC and AA, you convinced my parents to abandon me. Anyone who leaves AA ls
treated like a schizophrenic and ignored because they're 'in denial.' The only time I was ever in denial was
when I believed that you, Mr.G, Mr.Hagg, etc ... knew what was best for me and cared about me. I've had to
work really hard to repair my relationship with my parents after them putting me in the hands of your
unqualified staff and trusting them blindly with my safety. They know now that they were brainwashed to
believe that your staff always knew what was best for me, when in fact, they were doing more harm than
'good.
I've been seriously considering filing a police report against AARC, and specifically Mr.G. l was hoping to
· talk to you before doing so, but If l don't hear from you by the end of the week. I can not let this go and try to
move on without feeling guilt.
What I reaily wanted to ask you was if everything you'd ever told me - about how much you cared about
me, and how special you thought I was -was just a lie. I really wonder if you've been sending me all of
these nice emails to convince me to keep my mouth shut. I'd also really like to know - if I'd talked to Glllian
Findlay about my experience with Mr. G and the fact that you knew, would you have called me a liar too?
' I hope to hear from you (any time) tomorrow."
