My Son with Home Quest
« on: August 03, 2004, 12:18:00 PM »
Here is a story to make your get sick... Even today in this decade. when boot camp stories are everywhere .. But not out enough to get to parents who have no idea what these places are about..
Most stories I see are from the 80's early 90's
and alot about the straight program ..
Here is one for size ..Vision Quest..
My motto.. there vision is to send your kid on a Quest of insanity!!!! There is no help here just humiliation and abuse and torture..
They have their money in all the right places and money so it seems can buy then the right to stay in business when their business is to abuse and degrade children.
My son was sent for what they call a RESPITE weekend with Vision Quest through The Home Quest Program .. A partner program a step before actual placement into a boot camp.
He called me a bitch during an arguement about cleaning his room .. this was an ongoing event .. and since he is Bipolar life is far from peachy in my house. Frustrated and pissed I called for him to recieve a respite.. Which was told to me and my son is a work detail weekend where him and a group of other kids go to do work. SInce we argued over him cleaning his room and chores .. I thought wow ... he would learn to do work. He was told he would be shoveling rocks cleaning ect. No harm in that right ?????
Wrong ! Boy was I lied to and stupid me .. I fell for it . My son went 2 weeks later since I called near the July 4th weekend and they were not doing Respites' due to the holiday .
He had excepted the fact he was going and actually kissed me goodbye with a mom I love you and will see you when I get home.
During that weekend I had no idea my child would endure holly hell at the hands of 5 drill instructors all of managment rank.. for calling ME  a bitch at home all at the request of his quardian while on the respite. For some 6 hours maybe less maybe more .. he was unsure of the time . MY son was kicked smacked .. his head slammed into walls . He was forced to run lapps in a hallway and do some sort of drills with chairs. Does that sound bad ??? Well as if that was not enough . These piece of shit employee's made my son wear a maxi pad taped to his ass with the word bitch on and that is not the half of it .. he was made to get on all fours and bark like a dog . Lick water from a cup as if he was a dog .. Beg for food like a dog while they spit popcorn in his mouth!All of this while the other kids were in the room next door in bed.
How did these DI's come in contact with my son?
Well the man who was responsible for taking care of our kids requested that these DI's deal with my son stating " This kid likes to call his mother a bitch!" Other children layed there listening to my son get abused for hours.. He was to afraid to tell but those kids did tell. And that is how today I have come to learn all I have learned. This place has strict rules for these kids .. You are not allowed to look anyone in the face when you speak to them . YOu must look at there chest. That is defacing the very manners I have taught my child .. Look at me when i am talking to you .
I dont see where anyone has had enough guts to speak out about VQ or any of its affliates...
We are in the mist of a Federal Law Suit for abuse my son indured. And I think every parent and survivor should stand together and get these places shut down .
I have come to learn a movie will be realesed about this very thing .. abuse and so on in these places..
Dont know the release date .. but the official web addy is http://www.coldwaterthemovie.com
check it out. And I really wish more VQ survivors would speak up .. anyone who wants my son's entire story may contact me .. there is alot to tell.. And this is not alleged.. it is fact. VQ and the DI's admitted to the abuse in writting . I have tons of court documents supporting this info and our story was in the local paper in Novemeber of last year.
