Did you place your child into a controversial ‘teen rehab’ or a behavioral treatment program? Does your child harbor resentment towards you for placing him/her in it? Does your relationship with your child feel strained because of the experience? Do you need help repairing it? Email only if you are willing to appear on TV.
WWASP Survivors was contacted by the Dr Phil Show’s Executive Producer looking for survivors who might want to participate in the show. Our initial call to action was met with so much support that it seems that there will be a great turn out for this show. So much so that we thought it appropriate to use this opportunity to show our numbers and ask that any survivors of these tough love programs come forward here, tell your story and share with the world your concerns for the kids currently in these programs.
Dr. Phil’s viewership is exactly the audience we need to reach, the struggling families with challenging youth, and the supporters of the tough love mentality that are not aware of the way these programs operate on a day to day basis. If Dr. Phil can show that these schools are doing it wrong, I believe many will start to understand that there is much more to the troubled teen industry than meets the eye.
We encourage every survivor who has been through these programs to stand up and fight for these kids… Because we are the ones who know what it’s like and our best weapon against these places is the truth. Please leave a comment with the program you went to and a short description of your experience. Help us to show the Dr. Phil show how many of us out there have been effected by these programs and are deeply concerned for the kids currently in them.
