COMMUNITY ALLIANCE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF YOUTH
July 11, 2012

I found CAFETY in 2006 after having firsthand experience with the "Troubled Teen" industry. I had been sent successively to a Wilderness Program and a Therapeutic Boarding School. I would describe both experiences as traumatizing. After searching online, I came across CAFETY, who perform several important functions for the benefit of people like me. CAFETY advocates for the rights of teens imprisoned by this industry, educates the public on the workings and dangers of TBS's (and other like institutions), and acts as a resource and support community for families (parents, teens, etc.) and others who have been affected by this destructive industry. After finding CAFETY, I was able to begin my healing process knowing that I was not alone, and that people were working to protect others from the same experiences that I had as a "student" of one of these programs.
