Lived the nightmare.
9 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can tell you this is one movie I won't see. Not because I think it will suck, but because I don't think I could take it. I spent two years of my life in a wilderness camp. Aaron's tragic story could have happened to any of us kids.

If your kid is in need of help, then get them help. But please make an informed decision. Ever since the Columbine incident, these teen prison camps have multiplied at an astoundishing rate. They are making a killing off of preying on parents who think that their misguided kid is next.

Has a listing of questions every parent should ask a potential treatment facility. ASK THEM!!! DON'T ABUSE YOUR KIDS!!!
