Yeah Pirate, that was James Hattfield. I have two copies of the original printing before St. Martins pulled it. I didn't know the dude was gonna die, but I thought the book might be valuable someday. I've had it for sale for $100 (one copy, I'm keeping the other for reference) since it came out, not a single bite, damn it! I'd better keep my day job.

But yeah, that's just exactly the incident I was thinking of.

If we choose to violate the rights of the innocent in order to discover and act against the guilty, then we have transformed our country into a police state and abandoned one of the fundamental tenants of a free society. In order to win the war on drugs, we must not sacrifice the life of the Constitution in the battle.
--US District Judge H. Lee Sarokin

I went in 1982 in Atlanta.  My Dad says they paid $3,000 when I went in and they didn't pay anything else, even when I went on a refresher in St. Pete.  I was in there for about 3 yrs.

the price was definatly by the "cost of living"..
this means it was different in different areas...
Atlanta must have been more....virginia by 86 is believable at 7000.....its a very expensive area to live.....geez......back in the day it was for the life of the kid.....i'm sure every parent back then loved that.....thats what made str8 so alluring to the parents....after they got huge, that fell to the way side....inflation made that impossible to do.....somtimes its very hard to believe that what started out with a group of parents that were scared to death about thier kids doing drugs back in the 70's, became a huge money machine with a bunch of branches all over the country......and the end result is a back lash of very messed up adults.....50,000 + went through this place, only a little more or less than 10,000 finished and of the graduates,honestly, how many of us are doing great? how many of us were able to really go on with life and not have residule problems....?
not many.....honestly, only the ones who had easy , "groomed for staff" programs....thats not to say there weren't staff members that didn't have easy programs, cause there were a few...but i think we all know what i mean......if you include the ppl that went through "The Newt's"
KIDS "'grams".....that number grows even greater of very scathed ppl.....of course the rest of the aftermath "we need to change the name" "'grams"
even larger yet.....the sucess rate is extremly low and the numbers of ppl that got the "huuuings"
is unreal and scary......this number compounds even more if you think of all the parents that got "huuued " too.......almost everyone,in fact in my opinion,they all got bent over and huuued...
what sucks for most of us is the denial that most of our parents and siblings carry with them to this day.....none of them were in there and the only thing they saw was results, false results.!!!
they were also "trained" to huuu us too! in my case the huuuings never quit! i've had 26 yrs of
"ok, time to bend over....huuuuuuaaaaaaagggggghhhhhhhhhh...." all of us have!.....to everyone that made str8 what it is today and those who still support it and thing/places like it, Thanks......my ass is still bleeding".......hippie{oh, by the way, around here, ppl call getting screwed over"getting huuued"...lol...its kind of funny because str8 was all about getting huuued...hippie

Whatever they charged at the door was whatever it took to hook them in. Now then, add to that the host home fees, which rarely if ever made it back to the host homes, donations, the fund raisers, the volunteer work... hell, even paid staff,  except for the big wheels, worked for less than minimum wage once you broke it down to hourly pay.

Like junkhead, "Well, what have you got?"

When a well-packaged web of lies
has been sold gradually to the masses
over generations, the truth will seem
utterly preposterous and its speaker
a raving lunatic.
