With first-hand accounts from survivors and interviews with former employees and industry experts, “Trapped in Treatment” Season 2 explores the complex nature of the troubled teen industry and the lack of justice for those that have lived through it.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

it's hard to feel sympathy for Paris while listening to her recount her experiences at these exclusive, private, teen behavior therapy schools. while I don't doubt she suffered trauma at these places, everyone experiences trauma differently. so while I'm sure not having a Michelin Star chef prepare her sushi must have been traumatizing, it doesn't compare to the real horrors that happened to kids less fortunate than Paris, who went to state run rehab facilities. I have only listened to the first two episodes that are available, but those two lack any direction and they fail to convey what actually happened. I'll give the other episodes a listen when they are available and hopefully the story gets better. there certainly is a problem with these types of places and if this podcast can bring attention to that, then it will be worth it.
