There is no excuse for child abuse, especially in the name of treatment!Mission Statement: Troubled Teen Survivor.com is a website and network, dedicated to offering support to survivors of the Troubled Teen Industry and families coping with one of the hardest times; when their loved ones are in trouble. We are here to offer consolence in the fact that you are not alone. We are here to provide information of our personal experiences relating to the Troubled Teen Industry and outlooks, in order to help serve families with a more accurate knowledge of the impact that this industry may have as well as offer support. There is no excuse for anyone to be abused, and in the name of treatment, is what we are here to stand for. The motivation to persevere in the fight against the non regulation and abuse in at risk teen programs, is started by the fact that we have been there, and we know how horrific it is. As you are reading this right now, at this very moment, there is a kid being treated cruelly in a program out there. Not saying that there are no placements that can help your teen, but you need to be highly aware and educated on the truths that the industry likes to in every possible way, hide. Not being educated on the dangers, could lead to a price that no loving family is willing to pay, and that is not meant financially. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. Copyright 2011. Kristin Stattel. All rights reserved.
