Horrid Experience at Provo Canyon School

From age 13-15, i was held in this horrid place. So many things are seen but not heard. Many of the torture that had occurred to me and multiple other patients there cannot be put into words because of how painful it was. They really need to actually start helping kids rather than making things worse. I convinced my parents to transfer me to another facility because of the horrible treatment i was receiving. For two years i was belittled because i spoke negatively about the program. Finally i broke down and was brutally honest to my wretched therapist and brainwashed parents. This insanity needs to end! I 100% agree with closing down this facility. I was confined in the place for 22 months beginning on November 13, 2002 and recently ending on September 4, 2004. Therapy was more like discipline session. Therapists had all the power. How are you supposed to trust someone with helping you when they are constantly placed in the role to discipline you? For approximately 15 months of my stay, I was residing on investment, the disciplinary unit. I endured numerous amounts of hours sitting in isolation in sweats with no communication to anyone because I was very fed up with not being taken seriously with how i felt about the program to anyone. Because I happened to be very impulsive as well, i was placed on a standing order in which i was forced to write down every single word, sound, and non-verbal expression down on paper before i did it. That was a part of my program for four months straight! Not once was i taken off of that. Then because i didn't work on certain specific issues that i had, i was put on another standing order that was to carry a box with all my issues written on the outside. That is breaking confidentiality and very cruel because i was never allowed to put it down unless asleep. I really think that they falsely advertise Provo Canyon School because by manipulating desperate parents to get their kids help. In the video they show numerous things that do not even exists at the school. I have no more to say on this but i thank you for giving me the time to express myself on this issue. It is quite crazy because i never thought that anyone would feel the same as i do and actually want to do something about it.
