New hope website:

Do you think the staff restrained him for complaining about chest pain?

This is a "so-called" psychiatric treatment center but..... read who they won't accept:

New Hope is generally able to admit and treat adolescents whose behaviors  are such that they do not require excessive restraint or seclusion for their assaultive or destructive behaviors. Although in some cases we do accept and treat youth with histories of documented physical aggression, we cannot serve extremely aggressive residents who are likely to put other residents or staff at risk or who regularly disrupt the treatment of others.

Adolescents who are actively psychotic or have an Axis II personality disorder, autism, or pervasive developmental disorders are generally not appropriate for our programs.

      Geez, that is usually what happens when posters abuse their privilege to post. They will be removed. Bravo, more editors should do the same.

      Police investigate death of NC teen at SC facility

      Associated Press - June 13, 2010 12:25 PM ET

      ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Police are investigating the death of a North Carolina teenager at a South Carolina psychiatric treatment facility.

      The Charlotte Observer reported that 17-year-old Levi Snyder of Lenoir, N.C., died Saturday morning at the New Hope Carolinas treatment center.

      Rock Hill police Detective Kathy Harveston said the early investigation turned up no evidence of foul play. The teen was a patient at the center that treats emotionally disturbed adolescents. Harveston said Snyder had been treated for chest congestion last week and was on antibiotics.

      The York County coroner is expected to conduct an autopsy this week.

      So is this supposed to be out of line with Hospitals, Senior Living centers, Public Schools, DayCare Centers ect.......The record for well loved people with responsible parents going to hospitals, public schools and Day care centers is even worse for neglect and abuse. Just read the threads and posts from a month or two ago.

        We looked at this a couple of years ago, I believe……If we looked at abuse with the consideration of “all” reported instances programs would be considered extremely safe (which they are) and occurrences of abuse would be considered extremely rare in programs in comparison to other settings.

          Well, I guess ya musta just "overlooked" the pertinent details in this investigation, eh?  :D

          According to the database in question,

            The database includes violations that were confirmed at Texas' licensed residential treatment centers over the last two years by inspectors from the Department of Family and Protective Services. Not all violations in that time period are included — just those Tribune researchers found to include abuse, neglect or serious mistreatment. The records analyzed come from the agency's licensing website. Incidents are not included on the website until the RTC has had its due process, or waived its rights.[/list]

            I was not referring to this specific case or occurrence.  I was referring to abuse in general and in response to DannyII's  question.  If we stepped back and looked at the larger picture programs would be among the safest.

            In 2006, approximately 3.3 million reports involving 6 million children were made to Child Protective Services (CPS) agencies. Of these, 61.7% were accepted as needing further investigation, and, once evaluated, the investigations concluded that child abuse and neglect had affected approximately 905,000 children, with 16% of this total representing cases of substantiated physical abuse. The most common form of substantiated abuse in 2006 was child neglect, which accounted for 64.1% of cases, followed by child sexual abuse (8.8% of cases) and emotional maltreatment (6.6% of cases).  

            Link

            Ursus if we documented and posted the abuse which occurs outside of programs we would need to post 2,480 occurrences per day, seven days a week 52 weeks a year to document them here on fornits
             Thats 5 posts a minute every day 7 days a week at 8 hours a day.  If we added elderly abuse we would have to document another 3 posts per minute every day 7 days a week at 8 hours a day.  This would not include the time needed to research each occurrence and format them to appear properly here on the forum.

            My point being not to minimize any abuse that occurs in programs but merely to place it into perspective and to caution not give the false impression that programs are unsafe.

            Oh, but your point *IS* to minimize any abuse that occurs in programs. The "impression" that PROGRAMS ARE UNSAFE is a true one!

            Anytime you practice coercion as a form of behavior modification, not to mention put kids in control of other kids' progress or punishment, you're gonna have some "unintended consequences." And that is assuming the best of circumstances.

            @Whooter: If you are going by the numbers you will not have accurate data. This is because children in residential treatment mostly have no complaint procedure and don't have access to lodge complaints. If they achieve a level or progress they would not file a complaint due to the fact that they would be punished or set back, not to mention that most are brainwashed by that point and unable to understand the abuse they have suffered. Therefore, thousands of potential complaints are never heard or counted. The few that do get a complaint through are lucky to have gotten away or in other cases, unlucky to have died.

            I don't have proof of this. Residential treatment programs refuse my requests to "see what they are doing inside" by speaking with the kids. Anyone can obviously see the problem with how these programs keep information from escaping to the public. But I know it happens, it happened in all Straight programs and from reports, the majority of residential treatment programs.

            If a child is being abused they can tell their teacher or therapist the same as any other school.  They can report this to their parents also when they speak.  I don’t think that the numbers could be suppressed at all.  But I do understand your thinking this way if you base your conclusion on program experiences like straight.  I have spoken to kids inside of programs and they are nothing like straight, they don’t brainwash the kids and they have conduits to the outside via therapists and teachers who are bound to report abuse.  They have parents and family on the outside who they can speak to and visit with.

            Unlike programs of the past programs today have open doors and allow researchers and writers to come and go and follow students progress and report their findings in the form of study results, editorials and books.  If there were evidence of brainwashing or abuse this would be uncovered.
