Diamond Ranch Academy which is marketed as a residential treatment center located near Hurricane in Utah is hunting young people who had been confined to their facility and had publicly spoken out against what they believe were poor treatment of them.
Many of them suffer from emotional damage as result of their placement at the treatment center.
An alarming number of suicides among earlier students also indicate that their stay were not a pleasant one.
2 boys died while they were confined to the treatment center.
We know that they once operated from an address in Idaho. We do know that the authorities raided the facility and as result they relocated their operations to Utah where the laws are less strict – almost none existing – regarding operating a treatment center.
While the 1999 raid is many years ago, it is also interesting because it properly was the last time any official cared about what went down at the treatment center. That is why we are interested in what took place back then.
If you were forced to be a resident back then or you were an employee please comment to this blog entry. I will forward your statement to the human rights organizations in the United States and abroad which is interested in the conditions at this treatment center.
Why do human rights organizations outside United States care about Diamond Ranch Academy. Because today Diamond Ranch Academy also attracts client from abroad – especially United Kingdom, which can send clients to the treatment center who comes from a healthier youth environment to a place where they can suffer real emotional damage which could haunt them for life.
We as Danes believe in free speech. We believe that young adults who had a bad time should be allowed to share their testimony. We believe that others have the right to re-publish their testimony. We acknowledge that there is two sides to any testimony but if one side is not given the opportunity to speak out there is real danger that a third teenager could die at Diamond Ranch Academy.
So please step forward. Diamond Ranch Academy will try to silence everyone who speaks out against them. We will show them that they cannot stop an entire world fighting for free speech.
