Treatment Facilities Investigated for Severe Abuse And Neglect
The “Troubled Teens Industry” refers to the over 5,000 centers in the United States that aim to treat adolescents with behavioral or mental health concerns. Facilities vary widely in the diagnoses or issues that they treat as well as their methods of treatment. These facilities allegedly lack proper oversight, and they have repeatedly been investigated for complaints of physical abuse, sexual assault, involuntary detainment, forced labor, and isolation.
Experience abuse while being treated in a behavioral facility? You may be eligible for relief. Fill out our contact form or call us toll-free at (866) 981-4800 to speak with our expert legal team, free.
