I think the press release is "light" in at least one area - when you say that kids can't even call their mother or father after intake.  Well, that's true, but that is also common in other rehab programs - no family contact for one month might be acceptable.  At SAFE, there is no family contact until the child progresses to phase two, which technically they tell you can happen in something like 45 days, but in reality very few if any kid has ever made it in that time.  I know families with kids that were on phase one for six months, 12 months, 18 months!  that is criminal, and therapeutically undsound - to not allow a child to have family contact for that long.  We pulle dour son Julius after six months - he was still on phase one.  he knows the 12 steps cold, the tools for personal change, and a whole lot more - he should have progressed to phase two, I think.  it makes you wonder wheter the real croteria for making phase two, where family contact is allowed, is that you are brainwashed?!
