Conference Chair

The major purpose of this conference is to reexamine the destructive role that certain highly approved treatment programs have had on the children they were supposed to help. Thus we are turning conventional logic on its head and purposely coining a new phrase, drug treatment abuse.

In this conference we will review the record of the harmful impact that these treatment programs have had on their young inmates, discuss methods to close these destructive institutions, examine the reasons why these programs have received such high level support, and suggest better, more effective methods for helping children with problems of all kinds. In addition, we will seek to provide guidance to those children already harmed by these programs so that they may obtain redress or compensation in a court of justice either through civil law suits, filing criminal complaints, or both.

Conference fee is $100 in advance; $125 at the door. If you can’t attend, please send a donation
