The Troubled Teen Industry / I Hate My Kids and Need a Program
« on: November 14, 2009, 05:48:16 PM »
But I'm broke, so I went to STICC.  They will pay for my kids to be abused (abuse can be therapeutic) at an Aspen program.  I'm glad because I hate those little fuckers.  John Reuben told me that all of his clients hate their kids, that's why he's in business!  I really wanted them sent to MBA or Lone Star, but they were both closed down for their therapy practices.  So I guess I need some advice on which Aspen program is still open that will abuse and neglect my kids like they deserve.  Anyone?

"Shockingly" is right.  Nice pun.  Too bad there is such a sad story behind the JRC.  I believe NYS recently stopped sending patients there because they receive ECT against their wills at JRC.  Sick.

Aspen Education Group / Aspen Ed Programs on the Ropes in Oregon
« on: November 04, 2009, 12:02:24 PM »
Finally, a state government is taking on the phony healthcare provider Aspen Education Group.  

The state of Oregon recently investigated Aspen's Mount Bachelor Academy for child abuse and neglect.  They found no less than nine (9) substantiated cases of abuse including, but not limited to forced labor, deprivation of shelter and isolation, sexualized role play requiring rape victims to re-enact their rapes and to perform simulated oral sex on minor boys in a group setting, failure to provide treatment plans, failure to provide therapy, failure to employ duly licensed mental healthcare providers, and the list goes on.  In short, all of the things we have been alleging for many years here have been proven to be true via the state's investigation.

The state of Oregon DHS has concluded that the very model (upon which all Aspen programs are structured) of the program is inherently, intentionally, sytematically and willfully abusive to children and that adults at the facility failed to protect the children being abused.  It found that ALL children at Aspen's facility were systematically abused.  The abuse was so prevalent and obvious that the state took the almost unprecedented step of citing the program director personally for child abuse.

Aspen runs four programs in Oregon, Mount Bachelor Academy, SageWalk, New leaf Academy and NorthStar Treatment Center.  Each of these facilities has been accused of child abuse and neglect.  Mount Bachelor Academy was forcibly shut down today for child abuse, Sagewalk is under criminal investigation for the negligent homicide of a child in its care, NorthStar recently settled a lawsuit where Aspen's lawyer argued in court that Aspen does not and never has provided any treatment or therapy of any kind and New Leaf has been under constant scrutiny for many years over charges of child abuse and neglect.

Four out of four Aspen programs in Oregon have had serious charges of abuse and neglect leveled against them and more investigations and possible closures are on the near horizon.

The common thread linking these four abusive and neglectful Oregon facilities is that they are all owned and operated by Aspen Education Group.  Aspen runs dozens of other facilities in several states and each and every one of them has been accused of abusing children in their care.  Hopefully other states will follow Oregon's lead and vigorously investigate these abusive Aspen facilities and hold the perpetrators of child abuse to account for their actions.

It's a big first step to see Oregon go after Aspen's program model which is the foundation of each of their programs and prove the very practices Aspen considers standard to violate child abuse laws.

Keep up the good work, everyone. Aspen is on the ropes in Oregon and we all need to make sure it gets exposed to the regulatory microscope wherever it operates.

Hey Fellow Fornitscators,

Aspen Education Group / Aspen Exposed as Abusive Fraud
« on: October 28, 2009, 01:01:55 PM »
Aspen abusing kids with sexualized role-playing.

This article goes into the abuses perpetrated by Aspen facilities in their "LifeSteps" seminars and shows that the basis for Aspen programs is "humiliation."

This can't be swept under the rug anymore.  The truth is coming out in a big way.  I'm just sorry it's too late for many aspen kids who wound up dead or permanently psychologically damaged by
Aspen's practices.

According to former students and teachers interviewed by TIME, the foundation of the therapeutic method employed at Mount Bachelor is humiliation. “For instance, in required seminars that the school calls Lifesteps, students say staff members of the residential program have instructed girls, some of whom say they have been victims of rape or sexual abuse, to dress in provocative clothing — fishnet stockings, high heels and miniskirts — and perform lap dances for male students as therapy.”

“In a Lifesteps seminar called Forever Young, students were placed on a mattress and taunted with painful information about their childhood that they had previously revealed, an apparent attempt to trigger regression to infancy.” One girl, who was taunted with memories of her younger sister’s death, vomited on the mattress.

But, while some psychologists who are either misguided or misinformed do recommend schools like Mount Bachelor for troubled kids, numerous health care professionals have spoken out against the methods of treatment used at Mount Bachelor, claiming that the “therapy” used at Mount Bachelor causes more harm than good. “Such programs, they say, are overly restrictive and unproven, and virtually all their students — who typically have depression, substance use, behavioral problems or ADHD — can be safely treated within the community.” Mental health experts also point out that separating children from their parents is not healthy except in cases of domestic abuse.

Aspen damages and kills children.  That is a fact.

Ridge Creek School's website claims that it is academically accredited by SACS and GAC, but a search of those entities reveals that RCS is in fact not accredited by either agency.

It appears the blatant fraudulent advertising continues from Buccellato.  Where would a false advertising complaint be properly made in the state of Georgia?

Has anyone heard that HLA will close its doors on 8-28-09?  This information is circulating through the parents of former students.  Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Fellow Fornitscators, I will be in LA on business at the end of the month.  Who's up for a few drinks?

Hello everyone.  

I am in possession of HLA's entire case file (that is public information) from ORS.  This is a lot of material.  What I have covers the 2005 to 2007 time frame.

Much of it is poorly redacted with many children's names left unredacted and as such I will not post the entire file for fear that people would be hurt by it (plus, at 2900 pages, it is just too much work to complete in spare time).

That being said, I will take any questions you have, research the documents and post the answers along with citation where one can view the original public record.

Right up front, let me say so there is no confusion, there are reports of: Run-aways, Suicide Attempts, Sexual Assaults, Batteries (child-on-child and staff-on-child), Food Deprivation, Water Deprivation, Shelter Deprivation, Forced Labor, Improper Restraints, Serious Injury to Children by Staff, Lying to Parents About Children's Condition, Falsification of Records, etc, etc, etc.

In complete honesty, it is far worse than I had envisioned; worse than when it opened.  It shows a record of worsening conditions and treatment, not improvement.  Some parts shocked my sensibilities.

Please go ahead and ask what you would like to know and I will respond as time allows with direct quotation and citation from the ORS reports.

Thank you.

Open Free for All / John D. Reuben of STICC is TheWho

Quote from: "Guest"
John D. Reuben is a wanna-be EdCon 'who' started a business making referrals to known abusive programs.  He has linked up with some of the most familiar bogeymen of the TTI such as Lon Woodbury, Martha Kolbe and many others, like NATSAP and Aspen Education.

John's son, 'who' was forced into two abusive programs, SUWS and ASR, did not receive the help he desperately needed from the unlicensed, unseducated staff of SUWS and ASR, but he was able to make it through, getting out at age 18.  Since the boy's legitimate psychological issues were never addressed while he was detained by for-profit quacks, his family bond was destroyed and when he came home from ASR he estranged himself from John and went back to his old behaviors (as almost every teen does after being detained by quacks) and got much more deeply into much harder drugs, turning to heroin to get his fix and escape from his terrible problems that his father refused to seek legitimate treatment for.

Eventually Michael Joshua Reuben overdosed on heroin and died due to his father's neglect in his time of need.

John's son Max H. Reuben is also a program veteran, but John declines to say which program.

Please lend your support in researching John's connections to the TTI and those of his firm STICC.

John, if you had followed sound medical advice, Mike would still be with us today.  Max, although still living, is deeply scarred by his experiences that you forced him into.  Now you want other people to follow your example which leads to psychological destruction or even death.  John used paid death notices in newspapers accross the country to draw attention to STICC and to get donations to send other kids to SUWS and ASR, a particularly misguided and disgusting thing to do.

Thank you to Mike's roommate [name withheld] who sought me out to tell Mike's story here and ask us here at Fornits to try to cripple STICC as a referral source to programs that verifiably kill children and are 100% ineffective.

R.I.P., Mike.  Your dad let you down, but your friends love you eternally.   :peace:

Please add your thoughts to this topic.

We now know Max went to HLA and that John Reuben and Jeff Holloway are tightly connected.  John is the driving force behind Jeff's move to Aspen Education.

Aspen Education Group / Alcoholics/Sexual Predators Working at ASR
« on: July 16, 2009, 02:24:13 PM »
Attendee testimony regarding kids getting alcohol, drugs and sex from ASR employees:

i mean shit this is my life, its not some fucking game for crc to make money off of. they fucking employed alcoholics, potheads, some crazy bitch who fucked students & bought them alcohol, redneck who beat the kids in dorms. they over medicated us, prescribed us shit thats stronger than a lot of what kids were doing before they got sent away. kids never even met with a doctor, they were prescribed by someone who wasn't even qualified. no confidentiality, bullshit therapy, random dorm searches, harassment. where the fuck is there right pull that shit on us.

This is a very serious matter.  An adult having sex with multiple children while in ASR's custody is very, very disturbing.

RIP, Shane.  ASR never helped you to deal with your addiction, and you and your family paid the ultimate price for it.

Aspen Education Group / RIP Christopher judge Groener, ASR Victim

RIP, Chris. ... chive.html

Chris is one of many ASR attendees who did not live past his early twenties.  He was only 19 when he passed.

SUWS and ASR team up to end another life much too early...

CHRISTOPHER JUDGE GROENER - age 19, of Norwalk, died suddenly December 24, 2006, at his home. The son of Bill and Anne Judge Groener, Christopher was born June 2, 1987 in Prince Frederick, Maryland and lived with his family in Norwalk since 1996.

Christopher attended Norwalk schools before enrolling in boarding school at The Academy at Swift River in Cummington, MA. Chris enthusiastically participated in Swift River's five week service project in the Costa Rican rain forest during 2004. This unique experience affected him greatly and he was joined in Puerto Jimenez by his parents for a brief visit. Prior to attending ASR, Chris underwent rigorous outdoor survival training at SUWS of the Carolinas.

In addition to his parents, Christopher is survived by his sister, Kate Groener of Norwalk, a student at Notre Dame High School in Fairfield and his maternal grandmother Ella Judge of Westchester, PA. He leaves behind many aunts, uncles and cousins on both the east and west coasts. Christopher was predeceased by his grandparents Charles Judge and Marshall and Marcella Groener.

Christopher is also survived by his vast extended family, including his birth mother, Dawn Davidson and her son Patrick Davidson, of Conway, South Carolina, his birth father, Jeff Fossett of Owings, Maryland, as well as his birth grandparents Kathleen and George Post of Dunkirk, Maryland and Wayne and Marcie Fossett of Owings, Maryland.

In Norwalk, Chris leaves behind his son Mason Lee Drury and Mason's mother Megan Rose Drury.
