"HI XXXXXX:
 
Did you not report this to CYS? I thought you did...
 
here's the message from our ministry:
 

Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children and youth being abused or mistreated is one of our most important responsibilities at Children and Youth Services.

 

We depend on our community partners and the public at large to help us do this work. In fact, the obligation for citizens to report when they believe child abuse or mistreatment may be happening is so important that it is required under the law through the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act.

 

Last Friday, a report alleging abuse of youth in our province was aired on the CBC's Fifth Estate. The report was about a privately run addictions treatment program called the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC) in Calgary. The Fifth Estate spoke to former participants in the program who are now adults. While some credited this treatment program for having a positive impact on their lives, others made troubling claims of physical and sexual abuse while attending the centre.

 

The airing of this program raised questions this past week about the role of our ministry in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of youth in this centre. Given that the protection of children and youth is a core mandate of our ministry, it is important to provide you with information that was not presented on the Fifth Estate.

 

Most important is that our ministry is not aware of any report alleging the abuse or mistreatment of a young person at AARC. Such a report would be looked into immediately and investigated by the appropriate authorities. Minister Tarchuk made that point clear when she responded to questions this week in the Legislature. She stressed that every report of alleged abuse our ministry receives is taken seriously and is investigated.

 

 
( Message from Fay Orr, Deputy Minister, continued... )


Most important is that our ministry is not aware of any report alleging the abuse or mistreatment of a young person at AARC. Such a report would be looked into immediately and investigated by the appropriate authorities. Minister Tarchuk made that point clear when she responded to questions this week in the Legislature. She stressed that every report of alleged abuse our ministry receives is taken seriously and is investigated.

Our ministry does not look into allegations of abuse or mistreatment brought forward by adults, even when the alleged incident happened when they were children or youth. Reports by adults must be made to police and our role is to support police in their work, when requested.

Addressing reports of child abuse and mistreatment is within the mandate of our ministry. The provision of health-related addictions treatment services is the mandate of entities under Health and Wellness.

As Children and Youth Services employees, relatives and friends may sometimes speak to you about child and family services, including what they read or hear in the media. I encourage you to take the opportunity to ensure they are aware of how seriously our ministry and its staff take their responsibility to protect children and youth and to look into any report of abuse or mistreatment we receive. Please also remind them of the important role the public plays in helping us do this important work.

Making decisions that are in the best interests of children and youth at risk is not always easy. Minister Tarchuk and senior staff in our ministry understand that and are firmly behind you as you make decisions based on what the best information available at the time tells you is the right thing to do to support children and families at risk.

 "Since the Respondent did not have the financial resources to pay for this private treatment program, it was ordered that the Province of Alberta fund his attendance. The Crown has appealed on two grounds: first, that the Youth Court did not have jurisdiction to order a youth to attend the AARC program and second, that the Youth Court did not have the jurisdiction to order the Crown to fund such a disposition.

All About Receiving Cash has played whack-a-mole with the truth about it's development as a franchise of the Kids quack thought reform program for twenty-five years.  Here's a bit of truth peeking out from Mendacious D's phoney baloney story:
"As a proud Rotarian for 40 years and a Paul Harris Fellow, in 1989 he was instrumental in the development of one of the world's most effective and successful drug centres for addicted children, the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC). This was his proudest accomplishment.

He was also instrumental in forming the Friends of Science Society and was devoted to their education programs on climate change."
http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/calgaryherald/obituary.aspx?n=charles-simpson&pid=182010484

AARC didn't adopt the current alias until it had become painfully evident that the nutso con couldn't get a license in Alberta in 1990.

Seems that the revered Mr. Simpson had a penchant for organizations connected to some shady academics:

"A main purpose behind the conference was to publicize the results of an outcome study, completed over five years (2008 to 2013), of client and families of the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC). At the time of the study, Jacqueline Smith, RN, PhD, UCalgary conference organizer and assistant professor in the faculty, was a clinician at AARC and served as a consultant on the project.
Among those attending the conference at the University of Calgary were, from left: Chris Wilkes, professor, Cumming School of Medicine; Leela Aher, MLA, Chestermere-Rocky View; Jacqueline Smith, assistant professor, Faculty of Nursing; Amelia Arria, associate professor, University of Maryland School of Public Health; Dianne Tapp, dean, Faculty of Nursing; and Ken Winters, senior scientist, Oregon Research Institute."

Sent to the Premier, the Ministers of Justice, Child Services and Community and Social Services, the Calgary Police Commission, and the Mayor:

Given the response of the Mayor's office, that they cannot intervene in a case of institutional child abuse, unlawful practices as defined by the Alberta Health Professions Act, and the assignment of a serving member of the Calgary Police Service to a posting in an unlicensed, unregulated private facility, and that this officer has been accused of abusing clients during his employment with that private facility, accusations that have never been investigated, I have to assume that your response is essentially canned, and like the response of the Provincial Government, reflects prior awareness of this situation.

I will address this correspondence to all of you, as it applies to the City, CPS, and the Provincial Government.  The Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre has perpetrated a fraud on the people of Alberta, and that fraud has entailed the abuse of over seven hundred people, most of whom were minors at the time.  Essentially every piece of information that has ever come out of AARC is false, so while we wait to see what the Federal response to this cover-up will be, I will endeavour to inform you about the real nature of AARC.  From the time I first looked at this phenomenon in 2007, all I have been after was a public inquiry into AARC in order to stop the harm being done, to facilitate proper care for AARC's victims, and to ensure that this does not happen again in Canada.

To begin with, AARC is a franchise of a completed discredited cluster of quack treatment facilities.  Currently, AARC is before the Court of Appeals claiming that to reveal this information constitutes defamation:

"In addition to the Sensationalism, the Powerless Production contained a number
of other defamatory statements, allegations, innuendos and criticisms of AARC,
including, without limitation, the following:...
(d) AARC is connected to the Kids program run by Miller Newton in Bergen County,
New Jersey, USA (the “KIDS Program”), which was eventually shut-down due
to, inter alia, the abuses that occurred in that program;"

It is beyond dispute that AARC is Kids, as is demonstrated by this excerpt from the Alberta Hansard:

"MR. NELSON: Mr. Speaker, AADAC has been involved with
assistance in developing the program of the Alberta Adolescent
Recovery Centre since its inception originally as Kids of the
Canadian West."
Alberta Hansard, March 24, 1992

So that there is no confusion, Kids of the Canadian West was a franchise of Miller Newton's Kids:

"The KIDS centers in El Paso and Orange County closed last year because of financial difficulties, but the facilities in Hackensack and Salt Lake City are still operating. In addition, Newton has authorized the opening of KIDS of the Canadian West in Calgary this spring. The Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission has agreed to allocate $600,000 toward setting it up. Private donors are expected to match the government grant. More than 40 Canadian youngsters are currently under treatment at KIDS of Bergen County in Hackensack."
http://articles.latimes.com/1990-03-24/news/mn-711_1_treatment-center

So it is crystal clear that AARC is lying when they state that they are not connected to Kids.

Please see the following so that there is no confusion as to just what Kids was.

Keeping 'Cult' Out of the Case
How do you convince a jury that your client was a victim of a cult?

New Jersey Law Journal/July 7, 2003
By Tim O'Brien

For Philip Elberg, you don't present expert witnesses and you don't utter the word. Through witnesses and records, you let the story tell itself.

For the past three weeks, the partner in Newark's Medvin & Elberg has been presenting evidence to a Hudson County jury about why his client should be compensated for the 13 years she spent in a rehabilitation center.

Lulu Corter of Wanaque was signed into Kids of North Jersey Inc. in Hackensack by her parents on Oct. 27, 1984, when she was a 13-year-old with learning problems. In August 1997, she bolted from what dozens of teenagers have described as a living hell.

Like many participants in the program, Corter had no drug or alcohol problem. Today, those who ran Kids of North Jersey cannot say why she was admitted because her records have disappeared. They say only that she had behavior problems, though they cannot recall the specifics.

Elberg, who won a $4.5 million settlement for another Kids of North Jersey patient in 1999, did give the jury a road map in his opening on June 12 before Superior Court Judge Maurice Gallipoli.

"This [program] is not about tough love. It's about destroying families as they existed, and creating a new family with [V.] Miller Newton as the father and Ruth Ann Newton as the mother," Elberg told the eight-member jury hearing Corter v. Kids of North Jersey, L-3578-00.

The suit is seeking compensatory but not punitive damages because Newton is in bankruptcy in Florida. It alleges that Newton violated Corter's civil rights, provided treatment that deviated from the standard care, and caused emotional, physical and psychological damage.

Newton is the 63-year-old rehabilitation guru who ran Kids of North Jersey from 1984 to the early 1990s, then moved the operation to Secaucus after stiffing the landlord for $400,000. State authorities finally cut off his Medicaid payments in 1998 and sued him in 1999 for $1 million in Medicaid overbillings. Kids of North Jersey closed in 1999.

Newton's operation was also shut down by state officials in California, Florida and Utah, where a prosecutor called the program "a sort of private jail, using techniques such as torture and punishment."

Newton's wife, Ruth Ann, served as a clinical director and second in command. Both are defendants, along with their organization, under several names, and four psychiatrists. Elberg and his partner and co-counsel in the case, Alan Medvin, previously gained settlements from carriers on behalf of three of the psychiatrists. The fourth, now dead, was dropped as a defendant.

Though Elberg has assiduously avoided the "cult" word, three witnesses testified to being brainwashed. He says that even an expert for the defense said in a report that Lulu was brainwashed.

Testimony was elicited that Miller would routinely require patients to shun their families, or parents to shun their children who left the program before graduating. For example, Lulu Corter testified that Newton discouraged her and her mother from attending her older sister's wedding because that sister had left the program prematurely.

Last Thursday, one of the questions from a juror to another psychiatric expert for Newton asked about whether teenagers could be conditioned to think a certain way.

And there seems little doubt that the three weeks of testimony -- which includes tales of escapes, kidnappings, beatings, and physical and mental punishment -- have had an impact on Gallipoli.

Last Thursday, shortly before lunch break during Newton's cross-examination, Gallipoli began a series of sharp questions for the witness. Noting that Lulu was in Kids of North Jersey for years for an eating disorder and compulsive behavior, Gallipoli asked Newton whether such disorders and compulsive behaviors could be treated on an outpatient basis.

Newton said they could.

When the jury was ushered out, defense attorney John O'Farrell objected to the judge's queries, saying they were "too skeptical."

Gallipoli responded, "They are skeptical." When O'Farrell, of Morristown's Francis & O'Farrell, pressed his objection, the exasperated judge snapped, "We're just about walking through a fantasy land, and there comes a time when the court just can't sit there and accept this like a bump on a log."

Asked by a reporter whether he thought the judge went too far in expressing his opinion, O'Farrell said only, "What do you think?" adding that he had high regard for Gallipoli.

The exchange followed 90 minutes of cross-examination by Elberg that included a rundown of Newton's qualifications, including a Ph.D. in 1981 from The Union Institute in Cincinnati in public administration and urban anthropology. The school bills itself as an "alternative learner-directed" organization without classes or the need to show up anywhere.

Newton has described the degree on resumes as being in "medical anthropology" and then "clinical anthropology." Newton says those titles describe what he studied. He also says he is a "board certified ... medical psychotherapist." When pressed, he says it is a "peer certification."

Setting Up The 'Doctor'

Before the cross examination of Newton, with backers on one side of the courtroom and angry former patients and staffers on the other, the jury heard from five former patients who say they were victims of Kids of North Jersey. Elberg says he was able to call those witnesses by invoking a rule of evidence allowing him to rebut testimony he contends is not true.

When Ruth Ann Newton was on the stand, Elberg pressed her about comments by former patients in the past two decades in court, on television shows and to reporters.

Specifically, he asked four questions: Could patients leave when they turned 18? Did Kids of North Jersey routinely try to get parents to sign in siblings once one child was admitted? Did the program encourage kidnappings of those who escaped from the program? And was it common for patients to offer false or exaggerated confessions about how bad they use to be so they could advance through the program's phases and ultimately graduate?

Ruth Ann Newton said no to each query, at which point Elberg put on his rebuttal witnesses. "If she had admitted those things, I could not have brought those victims on," Elberg said in an interview.

The five told their horror tales, which included sitting in chairs, ramrod, for 12 hours of group therapy each weekday. Those in the first phase of treatment could not speak, and most could not write letters, read, make telephone calls, talk to each other or make eye contact.

There was no privacy. "Old-timers" or "peer counselors," those who had graduated but were coerced to stay on as staff, accompanied newcomers to the bathroom, where there were no doors on the stalls.

The tiniest infraction, such as eating a cookie, could send patients back to the first phase. This, the victims testified, was the ultimate hammer, causing many to lie in the hope of getting out.

Jeffrey Stallings, for years the No. 3 official at the facility, testified that he quit to avoid breaking the law. He had testified in an earlier case that Newton altered records in anticipation of visits by regulators and withheld some records.

Two weeks before Elberg filed his complaint in the current case in 1999, he filed a show cause order, ex parte, with Gallipoli, asking that Kids of North Jersey's records be seized to prevent the disappearance of more files. The judge signed the order, and the state's Office of Insurance Fraud Prosecutor seized the records from a warehouse in Glen Rock.

Stallings said he stayed for years and remained loyal. "Looking back, I realize I was brainwashed."

Janna Holmgren-Richards testified that she made up stories while "relating" during group therapy because when she told the truth she was told to sit down, thus harming her chances of advancing. "Lulu admitted she ate sugar, but she didn't, and I said I pushed my poop out because I was there for anorexia, but I lied." Lulu, in fact, made up stories of having sex with a dog and being molested by her uncle so she could move up, she testified.

Stallings testified that many patients had only three options: sit tight and try to go along; rebel; or lie to move through the phases.

As to why so many patients went along with such abuse, many have said that if they told their parents, their parents would go to Newton and he would convince them that their child was lying.

"I never told my dad," testified Jessica Calderone, a former patient. "He would question it, and call up the Newtons, and I'd be accused of manipulating and would be put back to phase one."

As for why so many patients would stay on as trainee staffers and later as paid peer counselors, many say Newton coerced them by telling them they had to "give back [and] carry the message" as is done in Alcoholics Anonymous.

"He guilted you," Erica Goodman, a former patient, staffer and program nurse, said in an interview at the courthouse. Just out of nursing school and lacking experience, Goodman ran the laboratory and developed the eating disorder protocol after speaking with seven patients who allegedly had eating disorders, she says.

Newton and his operation have been sued many times, and his carriers have paid out more than $5.8 million. He's been investigated criminally in Florida and New Jersey, but never prosecuted. But one by one, agencies have cut off the payment of claims, sometimes after exposes by the television shows "60 Minutes," "20/20" and "West 57th Street."

As for Lulu, the real tragedy is that she was the victim of sexual abuse by her older brother before she entered the program, and the program knew that, according to documents and testimony. Yet, she was not diagnosed as an incest victim until 1990, six years after being at Kids of North Jersey.

Newton testified it is often difficult to determine whether a young girl is just experimenting or participating in sexual play.

Throughout Kids of North Jersey's stint in New Jersey, the staff psychiatrists, according to their own depositions, rarely saw patients, let alone treated them. In his complaint, Elberg accuses Newton of "renting licenses," with the peer counselors using rubber-stamps to sign the psychiatrists' names to reports to collect private and Medicaid insurance.

"I never saw a psychiatrist once," says Christine Johnston, a former patient and staffer who traveled from San Diego to watch the trial.

Newton admitted on the stand that his program routinely does not talk to a potential patient's teachers or doctors before making a diagnosis, saying it is not that important and takes too much time.

The jury in the case has been active, taking notes and asking hundreds of questions through the judge -- dozens of Newton alone. Based on those questions, they appear skeptical.

Elberg did call Newton a cult-like leader in court papers in the case that led to the $4.5 million settlement in 1999, Ehrlich v. Kids of North Jersey, HUD-L-4592-95. And he had a cult expert ready for both cases.

"But I decided not to call him or use the term 'cult' because that could have turned the trial into one about the meaning of a cult, rather than about this girl who was yanked out of school and forced to go through what she went through."

Nobody has ever been held responsible for the torture of the forty Canadians in the US Kids programs.  Instead, the people in Calgary who were sending them to the US set up Kids here, and when they got caught, they renamed it the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre.

In addition to Dean Vause, the sect leader of AARC, five Kids clients served as Peer Counselors at AARC: Brian Neil, who committed suicide; Peter Sorckoff, who used his wife's position as a probation officer to divert clients into AARC; Janne Holmgren; Simi Bate, whom AARC sued after she appeared on the Fifth Estate; and Lisa Luciano, who rose to be a clinical director at AARC and was involved in the unlawful abduction of Levon Mckillop into AARC.  Dean Vause has no standing as a healthcare professional of any kind.

Crucial to understanding this unlawful phenemon is the fact that Dr. Martin Atkinson, who at the time was President of the Council of the College of Physicians and Surgeons.  Dr. Atkinson was named the head of Kids of the Canadian West, and when the sect adopted the AARC alias, Dr. Atkinson served on the board of AARC.  He remained involved with the sect, and participated in the cover-up after the 2009 Fifth Estate program aired.

Dr. Atkinson and Dr. Neil Stewart were both responsible for recruiting and shipping people to New Jersey, and later Salt Lake City, to be tortured by Kids. This seems very much like trafficking to me.  It is my understanding, although I do not have confirmation of this, that AARC has sent people to US facilities.  Again, this looks very much like trafficking.

As I stated previously, I began to look at this phenomenon in 2007.  I asked then-Minister of Justice Ron Stevens to investigate AARC, prior to discovering that Stevens was in fact heavily involved in promoting the sect.  It took twenty-three months from the time I began until the Fifth Estate program aired and the Provincial Government had to resort to covering up the abuse in the sect.  The Government has given AARC millions of dollars since the initial $600 000 payment arranged for Kids by Jim Dinning.

The defamation trial for my partner, the CBC and other victims of AARC is scheduled for 2021, twelve years after Christine was first sued.  Until that date, unless there is an open and public investigation into AARC, it's relationship to the Provincial Government and to the Calgary Police Service, I am going to use every means at my disposal to push for that long-overdue investigation.  To be clear, AARC is a child abuse cult and the tax-payers have been conned out of millions.  Male AARC graduates, none of whom are even fifty years of age yet, with most under forty, are dying at a minimum rate of otwo per year, many from suicide.  Nobody has ever undertaken to determine just how many people subjected to AARC are dead.  The methods used in AARC are proven to cause significant psychological harm, and the unregulated nature of the sect produces random acts of violence against the AARC subjects as a matter of course

It's child abuse, it's unlawful, and you don't have the right not to intervene.

Regards,

Greg Elliott

"Dear Mr. Elliott,

Thank you for contacting Mayor Nenshi. I have been asked to respond on the Mayor’s behalf.

Firstly, we sincerely appreciate you trusting our office with your/Christine's story.  We are sorry to hear of the challenges you are currently facing.  Regrettably, the Mayor’s office itself is unable to provide assistance or intervene; however, we work closely with two Crisis Intervention Specialists at the City of Calgary who are wonderful at connecting Calgarians with resources and may also be able to appropriately direct your concerns. If you would like, I can share your contact information and ask that one of them follow up with you.

Please let me know if you would like me to share your contact information and if there is a phone number you can be reached.

Kind regards,

Yvonne Borges
Citizen Liaison
on behalf of His Worship, Mayor Naheed K. Nenshi
The Office of the Mayor"

"Dear Mayor Nenshi,

I am writing to you because I need your help.  My name is Greg Elliott.  My partner of the last fifteen years, Christine Lunn, was put into the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre at age sixteen in 1996.  In 2009 she appeared on the CBC program "the Fifth Estate" to discuss the harmful and unlawful practices to which she was subjected in AARC.  Subsequent to the airing of the program, Christine was sued by AARC, as were three other women who appeared on the show, and the CBC, and several CBC employees.  These suits are ongoing today.

In the first two months after the airing of the program, many women who had been abused in AARC began to contact Christine.  Both the Provincial Government of the day, and AARC representatives, announced that an investigation would take place.  Nothing of the sort happened.  Prior to the airing of the show, the AARC Executive Director realized that CBC would be critical of AARC, so he went to the Calgary Police Service and claimed that he was under threat from a group of disturbed and disgruntled former clients who represented a physical threat to him and AARC associates, and who were out to smear AARC's good name out of malice and in pursuit of some financial reward.

Once CPS contacted my home, it became clear that they were not investigating AARC, but rather they were investigating Christine and apparently me.  Christine insisted that she wanted to make a formal complaint about her abuse in AARC, and initially the responding officer, Dominic Mayhew, refused to take a complaint from her.  Some days later, a Detective Rock contacted Christine.  Rock claimed that Constable Mayhew had given him Christine's information.  Mayhew denied this, and it has never been determined how Rock came to contact Christine.

In the event, Rock interviewed Christine and another AARC victim, Rachel O'Neill.  Rock closed both of their files and was dead, at forty-six, within four months, in July of 2009.  I have in the last year come to see documents from AARC that prove clearly that Rock was in contact with AARC Executive Director Dean Vause prior to contacting the women, and that Rock was receiving information from Vause to use in questioning the women, and in the case of Rachel O'Neill, to intimidate her into silence.

After Rachel and Christine's files were closed, another AARC survivor, who had not appeared on the CBC program, went to Calgary Police.  She is now a lawyer practicing in British Columbia.  She suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to being traumatized in AARC.  Prior to contacting police, Sarah Miller contacted Dean Vause.  Following is her letter, in which she refers to Vause covering up abuse by AARC staff members Tom Gilbert and Marty Heeg.  Of great significance is her reference to yet another victim of abuse who alleges that she was mistreated by Andrew Morton.  Andrew Morton is a serving constable with the Calgary Police Service.  Subsquent to the revelation of allegations of abuse committed by Morton, he was assigned to work at AARC in his capacity as a member of the Calgary Police Service, and despite the fact that he has no qualifications of any kind as a healthcare professional, Morton is a Clinical Director at AARC, along with Dean Vause who likewise has no standing with any regulated body of heatlhcare professsionals.

CPS and the Provincial Government of the day colluded with AARC to cover up the unlawful and dangerous nature of AARC, and allowed AARC to use the financial and political clout of it's backers to crush Rachel, Christine, and the other women who were willing to speak out.  I have been informed that AARC now intends to sue me and the mother of a child who was put into AARC against the mother's will by Judge Cooke-Stanhope.  The Judge's husband is intermittently on the Board of AARC, and for many years was the only physician that AARC subjects were permitted to see.

Mayor Nenshi, a public inquiry into the medically unsound and dangerous practices at AARC is long overdue.  Likewise the unethical and unlawful relationship between the Calgary Police Service and AARC must be examined, and ended.

Premier Notley is well aware of this situation.  In 2009 she was demanding a public inquiry into AARC.  I now have a document that reveals that she met with AARC sect member and former high-ranking Saskatchewan NDP member Dwain Lingenfelter.  Subsequent to this meeting, Notley refued to communicate further on the subject until this June when she finally responded to me again for the first time in eight years.  Her only advice was to go to the police.  Please see the following letters from Sarah Miller.  The first is one she sent to me after meeting with CPS, and the second is her letter to Dean Vause prior to contacting the police.  As the vicitims of AARC can get no relief from law enforcement nor the Provincial Government, I am going to take this matter to the Federal Minister of Justice and the RCMP.  It is painfully evident that agencies from outside the province will have to be engaged to stop this unlawful phenomenon.

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.

"I talked to the police the other day. They told me that there were no criminal charges in my case because molestation is not a crime. Yes... he told me that sexual assault, rape, etc... were in the criminal code, but not molestation. I was a bit flabbergasted until I realized why he was being such a fucking idiot. The correct term is "sexual exploitation" - it is a criminal offense to touch a minor (between the ages of 14-18) for sexual purposes, directly or indirectly on any portion of the minor\'s body. So because I said "molestation" rather than "exploitation" the cop is trying to run with that and say that no crime was committed. Brian Fish and I are writing a letter to the Crown, clarifying my error. The cop actually told me to go to the library and figure out what law Tom broke (according to the laws that were in effect in 1997). Correct me if I\'m wrong, but isn\'t that what he gets paid for? To "figure out" what laws people have broken? He also said that they needed proof beyond any reasonable doubt in order to charge him, and that they didn\'t have that - but they haven\'t even met with him! I think he would have admitted to it! And as I\'m sure you know, you don\'t need to prove something beyond a shadow of a doubt in order to charge someone - that\'s what you do in court. I\'m definitely not going to give up on this without a fight. Also, I sent a complaint to the Alberta College of Social Workers about Marty Heeg. I guess he admitted to them that he had me over for sleep overs and tried to rock me on his lap, but they wrote that "his intent was clearly to provide you with support at a time when you were experiencing a great deal of stress" so they dismissed my complaint. I\'m requesting a review of that decision. I\'d like to know how Marty sobbing to me in my counseling sessions "clearly" shows that his intent was to support ME. Fucking ridiculous. I feel like telling that cow to sit on Marty\'s lap and suck his thumb, and then tell me if she thinks that would help a suicidal kid get better."

AARC and it's supporters have played a massive con on the people of Calgary, and the result is a mortality rate among male graduates that is at minimum six times the expected in the general population.

AARC has to be investigated now, and the relationship of AARC to CPS, at taxpayers' expense, must end.

Greg Elliott"

All About Receiving Cash is apparently all set to sue even more people in order to supress the truth about the unlicensed quack behaviour modification program.  In light of this, let's look at one of their claims.  It is, according to AARC, defamatory to claim that AARC is "connected to Kids".
"In addition to the Sensationalism, the Powerless Production contained a number of other defamatory statements, allegations, innuendos and criticisms of AARC, including, without limitation, the following:
...(d)               AARC is connected to the Kids program run by Miller Newton in Bergen County, New Jersey, USA (the “KIDS Program”), which was eventually shut-down due to, inter alia, the abuses that occurred in that program;"
https://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abqb/doc/2018/2018abqb324/2018abqb324.html

So is AARC connected to Kids?

MR. NELSON: Mr. Speaker, AADAC has been involved with
assistance in developing the program of the Alberta Adolescent
Recovery Centre since its inception originally as Kids of the
Canadian West."
Alberta Hansard, March 24, 1992

So AARC is Kids of the Canadian West with an alias.  Is Kids of the Canadian West Connected to Kids of Bergen County?  The LA Times seems to think so:

"The KIDS centers in El Paso and Orange County closed last year because of financial difficulties, but the facilities in Hackensack and Salt Lake City are still operating. In addition, Newton has authorized the opening of KIDS of the Canadian West in Calgary this spring. The Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission has agreed to allocate $600,000 toward setting it up. Private donors are expected to match the government grant. More than 40 Canadian youngsters are currently under treatment at KIDS of Bergen County in Hackensack."
http://articles.latimes.com/1990-03-24/news/mn-711_1_treatment-center

And just what was Kids?

"Specifically, he asked four questions: Could patients leave when they turned 18? Did Kids of North Jersey routinely try to get parents to sign in siblings once one child was admitted? Did the program encourage kidnappings of those who escaped from the program? And was it common for patients to offer false or exaggerated confessions about how bad they use to be so they could advance through the program's phases and ultimately graduate?

Ruth Ann Newton said no to each query, at which point Elberg put on his rebuttal witnesses. "If she had admitted those things, I could not have brought those victims on," Elberg said in an interview.

The five told their horror tales, which included sitting in chairs, ramrod, for 12 hours of group therapy each weekday. Those in the first phase of treatment could not speak, and most could not write letters, read, make telephone calls, talk to each other or make eye contact.

There was no privacy. "Old-timers" or "peer counselors," those who had graduated but were coerced to stay on as staff, accompanied newcomers to the bathroom, where there were no doors on the stalls.

The tiniest infraction, such as eating a cookie, could send patients back to the first phase. This, the victims testified, was the ultimate hammer, causing many to lie in the hope of getting out.

Jeffrey Stallings, for years the No. 3 official at the facility, testified that he quit to avoid breaking the law. He had testified in an earlier case that Newton altered records in anticipation of visits by regulators and withheld some records.

Two weeks before Elberg filed his complaint in the current case in 1999, he filed a show cause order, ex parte, with Gallipoli, asking that Kids of North Jersey's records be seized to prevent the disappearance of more files. The judge signed the order, and the state's Office of Insurance Fraud Prosecutor seized the records from a warehouse in Glen Rock.

Stallings said he stayed for years and remained loyal. "Looking back, I realize I was brainwashed."

Janna Holmgren-Richards testified that she made up stories while "relating" during group therapy because when she told the truth she was told to sit down, thus harming her chances of advancing. "Lulu admitted she ate sugar, but she didn't, and I said I pushed my poop out because I was there for anorexia, but I lied." Lulu, in fact, made up stories of having sex with a dog and being molested by her uncle so she could move up, she testified.

Stallings testified that many patients had only three options: sit tight and try to go along; rebel; or lie to move through the phases.

As to why so many patients went along with such abuse, many have said that if they told their parents, their parents would go to Newton and he would convince them that their child was lying."

Facility Question and Answers / Re: Oakley School
« Last post by NivvyMiz on January 26, 2019, 03:25:39 PM »
Hey I registered to share my experience about the Oakley School.
I went to a wilderness program, Second Nature, and an RTC, Vista Adolescent Treatment Center and I've always thought Oakley was at least as bad for the low quality of their therepeutic approach, the flippant nature of the rules, and the manipulative nature of their staff.  If Vista brainwashed me into a robotic Golden boy, Oakley quickly shattered that and turned me into a jaded, cynical asshole.

It's true that you have to apply to go to Oakley but that's kind of a mindfuck tactic.  First of all, a lot of the time you are applying to Oakley out of a very strict RTC, usually island view, which Oakley also owned, and you just want to leave that place. I remember applying and thinking that if there was the risk of rejection than it couldn't be that bad, right?  Like it was probably a normal school? In the lobby when I applied, a former student at Vista approached me and encouraged me not to go to Oakley.  When I returned to Vista that day, which had a *relatively* compassionate and invested approach.  I started to campaign with my parents and counselors to find somewhere else, especially a place that my immediate friends were going and seemed to like.  One of my counselors was actually advocating for me but ultimately bthe... Consultant? Idk what you call that person, that my parents had wouldn't recommend any alternatives.  Vista's social paradigm was approaching the point where it would enter a very strict and confrontational "shutdown" mode and so I really wanted to leave on time.  So to say that we "applied" to Oakley is true, but it is absolutely a reuse.  It's not like people were being rejected or something

Oakley classically got by by having a conventionally beautiful campus and "offering" ( really forcing) it's students to snowboard on the weekends.  How can it be that bad?

Vista was a heavily regulated and monitored experience and leaving that I was heavily into rules enforcement and compliance and this immediately out me at alienated me from both the student body and the staff.  This paid off during my first snowboarding expedition.  I'm very non-athletic and I didn't want to go. I was terrified actually, but I was trying but staff basically ripped into me for a couple of weeks when I lost one of my gloves after bailing and put me on the punishment level for a few months.

A student's experience at Oakley was heavily dependent on their assigned counselors, one for academics, one for therapy, and one for student life/dorm stuff, and I guess one for weekend activities.  These all tend to change over time but you are stuck with your therapist and during the course of my two year stay I was unable to Foster any kind of meaningful relationship with my therapist who, ironically, was only interested in surface level compliance and day to day drama.

Oakley engaged in a number of manipulative practices to extend my stay beyond necessary.  Different from other programs, most students are intended to remain at Oakley until they graduate high school.  So when I amassed enough units to graduate early, staff engaged in a number of measures to manipulate my parents into keeping me there another month.  First they shuffled my acquired units so that I did not meet the graduation requirements, when I actually did.  They for instance redesignated the number of required community service units against the required physical activity units.  They then started a therapy flavored campaign with my parents that I "wasn't interested enough in college" when in fact I was very eager about film school, they actually hamstrung my abilities to produce sample films for my applications.  At one point, I asked a teacher for a letter of recommendation to a college.  When I later found the letter (I wasn't supposed to)  I found that the teacher recommend that college should not admit me. During this period, I was sent to Oakley's own miniature wilderness program with a special "college focused group."  This was  a typical abusive, isolation based wilderness thing but it only lasted a few days.

I think Oakley has a reputation for being more lenient, and that's definitely true, it is not a residential treatment center and it is also true that drugs made it in on occasion and people were getting in trouble for sexual contact fairly often, including myself.  I do see this as ultimately normal teenage behavior at a boarding school, though, it doesn't really affect my view of Oakley in a negative or positive light.  Rather it's their handling of these situations that cast it in a negative view.

Oakley's rules about physical contact are very strict considering it is a coe-ed experience, including strict punishments for hand holding.  Lower form was actually not the lowest and most punitive form, although it was basically the standard and most common form for all students.  The most punitive form was Off-Form, which was isolation based and indefinite.  I was never placed on off form but the people I know who were insist that off form lacked a constructive therepeutic element, it was ultimately just punitive isolation and hostile confrontation based groups which includes personal attacks by staff towards students.

One girl promised to ship cocaine in a teddy bear to her friend after she graduated and when the staff found out they shutdown the school for a month.  A USB stick with porn was found to be passed around at the boys dorm and a lot of drug use was found during these intense, all day groups.  35 people were put on off form.

Oakley had a punishment reward system not just in it's level system but in it's pink/blue/gold slip system. Pink slips were issued for rules in fractions and warranted a number of hours of on campus community service.  They were so common, with dozens running at a given moment, that there was never any meaningful service to do.  The windows of each building we're getting washed at all times for instance, lol.  The floor was always being vacuumed, the porch was always being swept.... I can't remember what else people would do.  You had to have none to make middle form and to maintain middle form.  If you were on anything above lower form, you had to reapply every single week which included a five paragraph essay about why you should keep that form.  And that got to be ridiculous and difficult after several weeks of maintaining the form.  I found this especially difficult, because my house counselor was gone for weeks at a time, and would often come back and attribute random perceptions of me.

Blue slips were punishments for academic infractions, and each blue slip is a Sunday study hall you have to attend. Sunday is the only day you can sleep in and the study hall was at 6am.  If you did not attend, your blue slips doubled. At one point my friend over slept too many of his blue slips and had hundreds.  There was no possible way for him to move up in form unless he remained at the school for something like a decade which was kind of funny, but also spoke to the flippant and apathetic nature of the schools programing.  Because everyone knew their graduation date, and because that was always the same day in December or June, people would just stop attending these study halls at all in the weeks leading up to it.  At one point, the day before graduation, the one of the heads of the school threatened to deny everyone graduation if they did not attend their final blue slip

Gold slips were a reward for good behavior but I can count on one hand the number given out during my time.  I don't remember what they were used for actually.  I do remember that at one point someone figured out how to copy or print out the gold slips, and forged a bunch of them, but that was the only time any one had them.  This is consistent with other rewards systems at Oakley, the highest form was advanced form, which could score you a private dorm.  But almost no one ever attained it, and staff would used the dorm that was set aside. I think like six people made it there during my time and, naturally, they were all secretly breaking the rules in some kind of extreme way.

The staff definitely had some shadier shit going on but the information was carefully buried and partitioned away from us.  At one point a staff member named Eddie asked my girlfriend what her pants size was.  I heard a lot of things like that about Eddie, but the big thing that happened was a newer girl made some claim along the lines that he assaulted her.  She was immediately isolated on off form, and we never got to talk to her before she left and we don't know where she went.  I can't remember the name of this girl or the exact nature of the claim but certainly nothing was done about it, in fact Eddie was eventually promoted to head counselor for one of the girls dorms. I wish I can offer more details about the girl that was assaulted but she was isolated before most of us realized she was at the school

At one point staff caused a gas leak in one of the dorms and tried to cover it up.  Parents still found out and then they blamed it on a student.

Another time during some kind of celebratory event staff accidentally mixed up snow cone flavoring with anti freeze and sent a few dozen students to the hospital.  Some people hated the school so much they went to the hospital for the night even though they didn't have a snow cone.  They chose a stomach oump over a night at Oakley.  They were bribed with snacks and fast food and little was made of it with the parents.

Food was heavily commodified in a punishment sense.  Only my dorm was locked out of our personal food amenities for most of my stay.  The cafeteria food was really, bad so this was pretty rough and also characteristic of Oakley's firm philosophy of punishing the entire group over the individual.

Ultimately I feel like it's hard to identify how else Oakley was so horrible, especially compared to stricter facilities.  Perhaps I would say that Oakley is what happens when you take the punitive aspects of and RTC, remove almost all of the real therapy component, and place it in a cery nice prep boarding school. I would say that notions that "keep your head down and lick the staff shoes" is accurate about how to survive at oakley

I'll answer any questions you guys might have for clarity :) and I'll post more if I remember something important
