I was abused by the staff members at West Ridge Academy. This charity is little more than a Mormon Gulag. The Mormon Church sends their "rebellious" teenagers there to be physically and mentally abused, by their unsupervised staff, forced to read from and memorize the Book of Mormon, and made to discuss sexual topics with Mormon clergy and missionaries. This place has been sued several times in several states for sexual abuse and other crimes against children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close it down.
