Re: provo canyon school

You could talk to your aunt. Show everyone in your family the information you saw online. Was she sent by the court. If she was there is almost nothing you can do.
If all else fails, tell your cousin that they will not give up until they break her spirit. The best thing she could do is play the game until her time is up. The kids that suffer the worst abuse are the ones that are defiant. You have to let the staff believe that they are running the show. When I was in Provo, you did not necessarily have to kiss a**, but you did have to learn how to play the staff to your advantage. Megan and I hardly every got in trouble. We did not behave but; if fact, we did every thing but behave. We just had the staff wrapped around our fingers. It is all a game of manipulation.

Re: Re: provo canyon school

Thanks for some really good advice. It sounds like "doing your time" in prison. My son alerted my niece's parent to the petition to close Provo Canyon School website.

Re: Re: Re: provo canyon school

Cheryl, please encourage your family to do a completet internet search. PCS severely abused my child suffering from depression. It is a very punitive program. Children are punished for looking the wrong way. Excessive isolation is used frequently. They also force medicate students. Students are deprived of basic rights. They have no contact with the outside world and often their mail is monitored. Phone calls are also monitored so children are reluctant to tell parents about what is really going on. Please do all that you can to get your niece out of there. I know that therpists are recomending these places to everyone with problem teens. But PCS is a very abusive facility.
