    Impartial please.

    Like Utah has a monopoly on bad treatment centers. I have lived in several states (including Utah) and have been a foster parent for many troubled kids for 30+ years. For every bad apple there are probably 10 good ones. I have seen these centers do good things for troubled kids and to be fair I have seen them do harm. Those that do harm we exit very fast.

    So what needs to happen is to have 2 people in a session not just one on one. Screening needs to be better and we need a way to judge their effectiveness.

    Just like every profession there seems to be a many good mixed with a few bad.

    That's the problem with many of Utah's "youth treatment centers". They are not legal in most States because they recognize that many youth's are harmed further by being abused by unqualified supervisors. Time to abolish Utah's detention farms.
