Hey bro I graduated in Dec. 87' but the place still looked the same I bet.  There is a few people that you probably knew from that same time on another site.  Straight Inc. alumni . Yahoo groups. Not sure of the exact address but it's worth looking for  to find old "war" buddies.  The site has people from all the straight's. Mostly kooks , but maybe you will find an old friend.  Good luck....JOEY

I was in Plymouth MI Straight in 1990. I was 17 then and now I'm 29. One thing this program did do was not allow me to use drugs anymore. But when I sleep, the nightmares I have of this place still haunt me to this very day.
I am still light sensitive. In the 7 months I was there, I was only able to go outside twice for 10 minutes, and barely saw the sun.

I wanted to reply to a message that I saw from LESTAT49203 regarding restraint in Plymouth MI.

I was there in 1990, and yes, it was alive and active in that facility. I was restrained once for trying to leave on my intake, and another time for "acting out" and kicking a chair.

I am female and wieghed 170 pounds then, which was tiny for me at the time. It took 5 grown men to restrain me on my intake and I still nearly made escape.

The staff pushed my head to the floor and one of them screamed "Eat that carpetting!" my mouth and teeth scraped against that nasty dirty oily carpeting and I was forced back on my feet.

I know that facilities like Straight did restrain "phasers" and no matter if it was a written law or not, they got away with it.

Many things were never told to us, never said to us, and most of it was on a "need to know" basis.

Many hidden and frightening experiences were done at the time I spent there, I wouldn't want to ever see again.

Shawn Jeffries sounds familiar to me for some reason, I was in the Michigan Straight in 1990.
So many people came and went there, it may be someone that I knew if he went to the one I was in.

BTW.. my name is Susan Minns (at the time.. I got married since then)

After I got out of Straight I had no money, no life and felt out of place. My family eventually kicked me out of home because I was showing druggie signs, smoke pot. After I left I became seriously depressed and did not like the fact the only family I had was one to give me tough love, not the love my heart really needs, unnsupported love unless you kiss ass doing the straight thing. I started doing alot of drugs to hold down my feelings and escape life. How could tough love help, when the people giving it to you won't even listen to what really happened in this place. Being sat on, deprived sleep and food and constantly singing those hated songs.  I hate Staight.

dreammagician.. it sounds like you needed a certain type of support group that didn't exist in your life.
Are things going better for you now?
Straight Inc. was hard, I think, on all of us. I didn't use since I came out of there, I know many cover-ups happened at that place and the parents too were programmed into thinking that they shouldn't trust the kids when they talk about abuse and such.
I babysat a part of my life with young kids, and if they are brought up in a stable environment, for the most part, they are honest people.
I think once a "druggie" kicks the habit.. they won't have a reason for lying. At least, that is my philosophy.

I'm still getting the hang of this crazy machine here so maybe this message will go through... I was in Cincy 84-86 and I remember tons of these people... esp. Ali & Shaun, Liz Arlen, but even more, her (step?) sister Claudia. The Paulis, and that (forgive the hostility but she really singled me out for 'special attention')soul-sucking creature of pure evil, Jenny Bowers, on & onI REMEMBER! Does anyone remember me, Wendy Meyer (DesRochers, now)?
