Would that be the famous Dr. Patton of the equally famous "Union Institute", passim ad infinitum?   The Union Institute: providing testimonials for AARC since 1993.  On the subject of testimonials, let's have a gander at that independent validation of AARC's outcome.  Now we already know that board member Dr. Goresky,  counsellor Imbach and Mister Doctorvause helped author this study to independantly validate AARC, so now let's look at the figures.  85 grads out of 100 contacted participated.  Also 11 parents of 15 non-participants.  In addition, 30 randomly selected parents.(What dat means?) So 11% of respondents were not graduates, rather their parents. Throws data off by up to 11%.  Additionally, info on 15 to 31% of grads comes from "randomly selected parents".  Now are these the parents of 15,16  or 17-year-olds living at home who are supposed to be sober?  Guess we're looking at maybe being out by up to 30% here, bringing us to a possible grand total of 41% suspect data.  
Kudos to Mr. DoctorPatton, and the whole AARC gang for putting this miasma of numbers together.  
Good to see the honorable member for Calgary-Edgemont carrying on the work of noted specialist in teen drug abuse Mister Lewis DoctorAndrews of the "Yankee Institute", whose adoration for AARC was also expressed in our legislature.  Mister DoctorAndrews saw fit to praise AARC for it's contributions to the field of recovery.  Misterdoctor Andrews was very prescient, what with AARC having just opened and Misterdoctor Andrews being in Redding, Connecticut.   Bravo!  
And Bravo to Mr. Herard for turning 85% who were sober (when Mister Doctorvause and helper Imbach called?) into 85% sober for 5 years.  A miracle!
And speaking of miracles, apparently AARC is able to cure mental illness.  This independent validation of AARC also turned up the little-known fact that AARC has a one hundred percent (reported) success rate for getting kids with diagnosed mental illness off of their meds!  Kudos again to the hard-working psychiatrists of AARC.  Or at least to Dr. Stanhope!

Hamilton,
I am currently sending out my information on AARC to a couple of media outlets outside of Alberta.  While this approach may come to naught, I figure that if one starts nosing around then it will help to flush V.  I know of another graduate currently doing time in Grande Cache.  My friend was a shining example for AARC in the immediate period after exiting, but has deep resentment of her mistreatment.  There is a Brown on staff whom my friend believes to be a child of Ann, but I think that this is incorrect.  I'm not sure of Brown's connection to Ann McCaig.
Lirenman, one of the most ardent AARCies and currently on "clinical" staff, has a brother who has renounced AARC.    My friend can provide a more comprehensive list of former "clients" who might provide accounts of their abuses, as well as their observations of the evidence of AARC's expenditures.  She has a temporary email address posted in this forum.
One of AARC's newer supporters is Kelly Hrudey of Hockey Night in Canada.  Lirenman is married to another AARCie, Imbach, who does work for the Flames; this beast don't sleep.

For those of you following along at home, for thirty-three thousand a year you can send your child to Shawnigan Lake Preparatory School, including residence (meals, bed, recreation etc.), for twenty-three thou a year you can send your child to Athol Murray (Notre Dame) in Saskatchewan, (residence, etc).   Or you can send your child to AARC, where they can play sockey with rolled up socks and eat macaroni loaf for lunch.   Both Shawnigan Lake and Notre Dame fail to provide the element of peer counselling, but your child can instead make do with teachers.

The real issue here is that Mister Doctorvause takes lots of money and does very little with that money as far as providing for the needs of kids left in his care.  Mister Doctorvause is not qualified to provide treatment to adolescents suffering the causes and effects of drugs abuse.  In addition, Mister Doctorvause sends the children left in his care into situations that have caused and will continue to cause the children to be harmed in many ways.  At the centre run by Mister Doctorvause the children are subjected to harmful behaviour from other children who are encouraged in this by Mister Doctorvause and his staff.  In order to keep this little machine running, Mister Doctorvause needs more kids and more money.  It is time now to shut off the money tap and stop the kids from going through the doors.  With operating budgets in the neighborhood of a million and a half, and thirty kids, that's around fifty thousand per kid per year.  To provide what again?  To pay the minions like Lirenman and Campbell who graduated from fodder to drones. To pay what on that old Forge Rd building?  And lunch.  Mister Doctorvause, in addition to the fifty grand per kid per year also needs people to donate undies and sweat pants, because he can't afford to pay that out of the fifty thousand.  That doesn't include the recent nine plus million to expand into the old seismic yard next door.

One also must ask if conflict of interest is part of the curriculum at the "Institute".  Of the endorsements for AARC, two come from Union Institute folks, Faulkner and Kelly.  And as I mentioned on another post, the "evaluator", Patton, is on the faculty of good ol' Union.  Just because AARC is in Calgary, home of the University of Calgary, a couple hours south of the University of Alberta, a couple of hours north of the University of Lethbridge, is no reason I guess not to seek out the opinions of people from the "non-traditional" schools.  Er, sorry, from one non-traditional school.  And as to many agreeing  "the institute" is non-traditional, I can't find anyone who has ever heard of it to have an opinion one way or the other.  But then I'm in Canada.  Where AARC is.  Any reason that you, with your expertise in accreditation, are so familiar with "the institute", or is it just another coincidence like all of the institute connections to AARC.  By the way, if anybody wants a laugh, look up one of the other good "doctors" who provided a rousing endorsement in AARC's nascent period.  Mister DoctorAndrews, expert on free enterprise, which is kind of like treating drug abusing youth,  just gushed about the importance of AARC to Alberta, even though he's in umm, that remote part of Alberta called Connecticut.  It would be laughable if it weren't so harmful.

Terrifying that you hold a degree from anywhere if you qualify anyone's opinions as unfounded.  My opinion is that a Ph.D. acquired without a dissertation but rather with a report on your newly established "treatment business", does not qualify you as a doctor.  As to my argument that it's graduates do not hold real degrees, "The Institute" handed out degrees for two decades before 1985.  I would trust that a reader of this forum would be able to think for themselves and not be confused.  In this country, where AARC operates, one could not get a Ph.D. in the fashion of Mister DoctorVause.  One could only guess as to Mister DoctorVause's motivations for choosing "The Union Institute".  Whether it had anything to do with being able to get the special doctor paper while running a drug-treatment center in another country rather than doing research is beyond my knowledge.

The plan is to get an institution that misuses charity, government and private funds while running a treatment centre using discredited methods overseen by unqualified people shut down.  The examples of the Straights and Sembler's removal from the Villa Sembler in Italy are good examples.  The situation in Alberta is a little different than in the US, where it is in the intersts of those opposed to the GOP to bloody their noses once in awhile.  There is no political opposition in this province, so a slightly different approach is required.  But it's coming.

Bush and Clinton are the same.  They are politicians who represent powerful interests.  They have different bases of support in the voting public, but they act on behalf of the same moneyed power.  There is nothing special about the US in history.  Powerful people have done what they wanted since the dawn of civilization.  People choose sides or have their sides chosen for them, but in the end it comes down to the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few, whether Assyrian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, French, British, American, Russian or Israeli.  The international configuration that allowed Americans to be the richest people in the world no longer exists.  The US citizenry is in debt beyond what they can ever pay.  The government is in the same boat.  Foreign central banks hold a good deal of this debt.  The country is being sucked dry by gamblers, who take all of their money and tuck into hedge funds down in the Virgin Islands.  The "War on Terror" is a last ditch attempt to allow the US elites to maintain their position by controlling resources and isolating rival economic blocs militarily.  Not long after the birth of the US, most of the big countries of the world were on a similar footing in terms of industrial advancement.  Over the next couple of hundred years, some, like the Asian Big Two, China and India, collapsed into ruin.  Now, the leader for the last hundred is losing its industrial base in order to maintain the status quo for the wealthy who owned US industry.  Those two sad sack Asian countries are seeing an increase in manufacturing and communications industries at the expense of the US work force.  The one way the US can temporarily stay afloat is to control the oil producing nations and the transportation corridors.  The elite can stay in control by holding the light switch for China, India, Brazil etc. and at the same time keep Russia from having a resurgence.  The problem is that the US would need millions of soldiers to conquer the Arabs and Persians and to  isolate China and Russia.  They just can't do it.  As the US citizen is less able to consume, it becomes more important for the elites to control the one thing that made Americans, Americans, cheap energy.  If the workers of these new industrial and communications powerhouses have money to spend and cheap energy, then the US consumer is no longer the market of last resort.  Also, very importantly, countries begin to sell oil in currencies other than the US dollar, then the US dollar will lose its value.  If it has no value, then even the low-paying jobs that more and more Americans are left with will not provide consuming power.
But if the US Air Force can keep control of the world's petro resources in the hands of the US elite, then the hollowing out of the US can continue for awhile longer.

How was it again that the US had anything to do with the Panama Canal?  Oh right, the US took Spain's possessions away during the Spanish American war.  That was the good old deal!  And why was the US taking away Spain's colonies?  Because they were done killing Indians in the West and were ready to become an empire.  Now old Wilson and his ilk, they knew that the old days of killing a few miners here and there and reaping the benefits of paying factory workers just enough to shit, sleep and make more little factory workers was coming to an end.  Or were you referring to the real good old deal where you could own slaves to harvest your sugar or cotton?  And as for being responsible for your own education, those were great old days when everyone was illiterate!  So this old deal, did it start after the US tried to invade Canada in 1812?  Or after those folks just looking after their own basic needs decided to steal Texas?  How about after the civil war?  No?  When exactly was this golden time?  Was it when the Federal Reserve was created to give private control over the wealth of Americans to a few bankers?  And providing your own medicine?  Fantastic!  Nothing like dying of broken arm because you can't afford to have it set by a skilled physician!  What a reverie!
Anyhow.
Keeping drugs illegal is the greatest business ploy in the world after war.  The value added to the drugs is created by their very illegality.  If drugs are illegal, then the price will go up to take into account the risk involved in grow, ship, distribute etc.  This transformation from mere substance to valuable commodity is paid for by the public.  The public pays for interdiction, the courts and prisons.  So the coca leaf grown for next to nothing in Colombia is worth thousands per kilo in the Western World's drug market as cocaine.  Dealers at a number of levels have cash to invest, so more folks, like those on Wall Street, reap the benefit of the public investment in law enforcement and the whole circuit of illegal substances.  If the drugs were legal, they wouldn't be worth as much.  The illegal quality of drugs helps to concentrate the wealth they generate, since only powerful criminals can run the type of operations necessary to process and distribute narcotics.

In addition, of the folks independently evaluating AARC, Imbach is a staffer, and Patton is on the board of... you guessed it, "The Union Institute".  Another triumph for ethics.
