SLS abbreviations
« on: November 01, 2011, 09:19:51 PM »
Hopefully this is the right forum to ask. I'm writing about my experiences at SLS; I was there 8 years ago and have forgotten what some of the abbreviations are. Does anyone know what ITR, SDL, and DI stand for? Thanks.

I don't know what those acronyms stand for offhand, but I sure hope you'll share your experiences with us, whatever they may be, whenever you see fit! :)

So... what exactly would go on in ITR? What would cause you to be sent there?

Aggressive behavior for the most part or attempts to self injur, the staff would escort you there,  there was a blog once that gave examples of what occurred in the room I dont want to give examples as since SLS is going down in flames a wounded animal lashes out at everyone.  If you google you may be able to find some old cached blog info about the room but I think the blog that SLS shut down last year had the most information.  I know a site listed what occurred in that room and it wasn't therapy based.  Also just found out A state Labor Department notice said 40 of its 56 employees would be laid off with the remainder being absorbed within the company.  The layoff date was listed as November 29 with the closing date of December 31.

All remnants of that blog seem to have disappeared, so the memories and descriptions thereof by people like you are pretty much all that anyone has at the moment.

Does your reticence to be more explicit reside in a concern over SLS's reputed litigious nature?
