 I have not yet been placed in a "character building school/wilderness program/boot camp/gay re-education camp/or a therapeutic boarding school" but as of today I am packing to be placed in the later. Basically, Monday I will be expected to walk into a therapeutic/troubled teen boarding school titled "Academy at Sisters" - which is in Bend, Oregon. So far I have heard nothing but bad things of this school. Facebook groups of survivors have said that it's "taken their hopes and dreams, and replaced them with skills only to be used by housewives," and have claimed that, "it took away our basic rights, and forced us to learn nothing but compliance." My parents think it is a good idea to send me here, however, I disagree to the highest extent. I have done nothing wrong. Sure, In my past I've made mistakes, but whom hasn't? I have never done drugs, stolen, lied to the extent that it has caused me/others harm.. None of the things that the AAS advertises it shall help with. Why am I posting a testimony? Because I want this to be here for someone to edit while I'm in the program. Because I want someone to see that I had a level head about me before I left. I still have hopes, dreams, and ambitions, and I want that documented before it's gone.

I don't want to be added to the list of survivors. I don't want to have to try and survive it at all.

My son attended not only a wilderness program but also a supposed thereuputic college prep school.  He graduated last month and is now attending university (1 of the 2 ) that accepted him.  There brochure lists literally hundreds of colleges and universities that their graduates attend and make the place seem like absolute heaven.   He has been at university less that 3 wekks and he is not doing well at all, although he is now eighteen he still has the mentality of the 16 year old that was locked away by his father.  He initially failed the basic algebra test for acceptance to the university scoring only a 14 out of 50, but supposedly he was doing pre-calculus at their facility.  These places do not usually have licensed therapists (none where he was at anyway) the workshops are cruel, having to write your own obituary, pretend that you are dead, etc.  Also, the mandatory placement in solitary for weeks on end with only an hour for exercise, being told who you can talk to, you are always on "bans" with someone.  Phone calls once every two weeks for 20 minutes.  All letters read, ingoing and outgoing.  No contact unless you attend there workshops.  These places should all be closed.  My son is a mess, smoked pot less that one week after getting out.  That wasn't mentioned in there fancy brochures.  The owners of these facilities are laughing all the way to the bank!!  I think your parents should reconsider this plan of action.  I don't know their reasons why but perhaps whatever you need help wise can be obtained in your home town.

More like {no one really friggin' knows], [if we knew we'd have already smeared in in certain people's faces for hilarity], and/or [gone apeshit and started raisin' some serious caine].

Oh yeah, and I've gotten tired of this shit. I threw down an ultimatum earlier tonight. Either we get some word directly from the horses mouth or it goes gloves off. I'm tired of pussy footing around with these psychotic program parents.

I ran away from home to avoid boarding school.

I am back at high school.

That’s all the general public needs to know.

But I’m here again :D

She took Niles' advice and it helped save her fucking ass.

You read the NEXT entry?  Oh wait. All the postings end the next day, despite an uninterrupted stream of posting prior to that.  I wonder what happened.  I really wonder.  Her parents would never lie to her and... I don't know, have her "escorted" to some super-lockdown now that she ran away.
Good job there.  Yeah.  Real good job.  Brilliant advice there.  You alienated a parent, encouraged a minor to run away, and managed to get her sent to a program (probably an even worse one) in the process. Programs should hire you and Niles.  You do good work.

Would the admin please ban the previous poster for gratuitous insults and not being able to read a timeline? (Protip: On Tumblr, the date goes before the post)

Her uninterrupted stream of posts starts in mid-August and stops abruptly on August 31st when she eats a yummy bowl of GTFO and evanesces.

They restart on September 21st. Her last post is on September 22nd.

It's the morning of September 23rd.

The idea of her father sending her to some worse shithole is possible, but incredibly unlikely due to his psychological makeup, the fact that she's already enrolled in public high school, along with [deleted] and [not for your eyes].

PODKs you are a POS.  You and Niles threatened and posted a 15 year old girls name and address on a porn site.  You encouraged her to run away and live on the streets....  a 15 year old girl.  You still dont get it?  How old are you?  Niles is old enough to know better.

There is nothing good about what you did to her and her family nor your advice.

According to our analyze of her blog she is not living at home but in a shelter. There are a number of shelters in Hillsboro which have the goal reconnecting families with too much programming. It is the intelligent way to run away. Seek the protection of people connected with the authorities. While running away is poor solution her approach show that she is not just another troubled girl. It is a question of lifestyle and faith (It takes a longer look at previous posts in her blog to understand why).

It is however far from the best solution. Now she has to act with almost as a nun to avoid being shipped off to restricted facility. Of course you can claim that the Academy at Sisters is a modern Nunnery because she give the girls no professional education and pull them a week before graduation so they can hold them back from ever graduating high school so they have to target their career on finding a rich man and live of him.

I am sure that the Academy at Sisters will not touch her now. She is a too tough a case for them and the case did pull them out of the shades they were operating under. I bet they are wondering how they can go back being unknown so they can avoid using so many ressources as the Family Foundation School who has to write "I am not a crook" at least one per week.

But there are other places out there which will go for cases like her. Places which have a higher fatality rate than the Academy of Sisters. Another support group is trying to get a girl released from a facility in the middle of Death Valley.

This case provides a good argument to those facilities which recommend keeping the placement a secret and advocating the use of youth transport companies. They will start to warn parents against discussing the placement openly because the kid could go out and find a support group on the Internet. When we searched articles in Hillsboro we found eyewitness statement about such a transport taking place. Next time her parents could start listen to a facility which is operating like that and then it is Morgan which are seen hooded and in mechanical restraints.

This case was handled very wrongly from the very start. We will sit down and talk with some of the groups we work with about how to set up a number of webpages with advice for teenagers who is in risk of a placement. An amount of ethical rules concerning the nature of advices given to teenagers in this situation need to be applied.

We can only pray that the situation works out for Morgan. It is serious business for her.

I have but one thing to say:

:sue:

This applies to literally everyone who would rather have her be suffering through horrors many of you know first hand.

For a 'libertarian' you don't give a shit about the chattel, Psy.
