The "Toughlove" based 'Troubled Teen Industry' was spawned by "America's Most Dangerous Cult", Synanon, and funded by the US Govt.

    Join US & Stop UHS

    Join US & Stop UHS

    UHS (owner of Provo Canyon) is currently under a 5 year Federal Observation Probation due to a recent $117 million settlement with the Department of Justice so that, even though they were guilty over everything below, they can continue to extort our tax dollars. 

    "The government alleged that between January 2006 and December 2018, UHS facilities admitted as patients federal healthcare beneficiaries who were not eligible for inpatient or residential treatment because their conditions did not require that level of care, while also failing to properly discharge appropriately admitted beneficiaries when they no longer required inpatient care. The government further alleged that UHS facilities billed for services not rendered, billed for improper and excessive lengths of stay, failed to provide adequate staffing, training, and/or supervision of staff, and improperly used physical and chemical restraints and seclusion. In addition, UHS facilities allegedly failed to develop and/or update individual assessments and treatment plans for patients, failed to provide adequate discharge planning, and failed to provide required individual and group therapy services in accordance with federal and state regulations." Full Department of Justice Public Statement

    Even though we all know exactly who UHS is, they are not only surviving, but thriving. 

    Currently, UHS has finalized an application to expand in Oregon. Survivors & Supporters Assemble. 

    The public is invited to submit "comment" to Oregon as they decide whether or not to approve a 50 million dollar UHS expansion (NEWCO). PLEASE organize, activate and amplify to recruit mental health and human rights organizations to submit public opposition to this notoriously abusive and fraudulent company from further causing harm to Oregonians. There's a reason the OHA rejected their previous application, and sure promises of a blood money dump into the local economy is not enough to pay for the silence of those they've harmed. As an individual, if you have personal experience with UHS, please also submit comment. We highly recommend posting a public testimonial on YouTube so that public awareness can reach a critical mass. However you choose to advocate, please remember that in order for your public statement to be officially counted and effective in Oregon, it MUST be submitted via the contact information below. 

    To the care of Pamela Krecklow PAM.L.KRECKLOW@dhsoha.state.or.us

    OHA

    800 NE Oregon Street, Suite 465

    Portland, OR  97232

    We highly recommend checking out CCHR (Citizens Commission on Human Rights) International's public comment HERE for an excellent summary of advocates concerns AND the perfect example of what Oregon needs from organizations opposing. 

    Our favorite part about the hearing (included in this podcast) is that the "local allies" UHS cites are not only present in the public hearing, but in OPPOSITION. It says a lot when all your supporters (with one exception) are your employees or your paid Goon/Transporter/Kidnapper. 

    Please rate/write review for Troubled wherever you cast your pods (in particular on itunes) so that other allies can find us. 

    UHS is a GIANT in the troubled teen industry, it is imperative that they not be allowed to expand their empire. 

    May the force be with us #nomoresurvivors

    Pieces of Victory: "Realistic Hope" with Jeneen Miller

    Pieces of Victory: "Realistic Hope" with Jeneen Miller

    TW/CW: Season 2 EP2 was recorded between Jeneen Miller of Pieces of Victory and Miranda Sullivan from Troubled, shortly after they met in Missouri during the November Right to Rights Rally. Mental Health and technical difficulties have kept this long awaited treasure from you, minimal updates to the content are included in the Outro. 

    Pieces of Victory is a Show on YouTube that features many of our Survivor friends and Heroes. Jeneen's book (which is unfortunately totally true) is also available, and we highly recommend it. 

    Everything is on the table, getting dished and dissed. 

    What do "statutes of limitations" for abuse say about our society? How does r*aping little gay boys convert them to heterosexuality? 

    We discuss Conversion "therapy" Torture in the USA, and Jeneen's good friend, advocate and Survivor, James Swift (aka Fifi Frost). Catch them both on Netflix's Haunted Season 2 EP3 and read James' Memoir "Rusted Rhistestones".

    We remember all the Survivors who came before us, who recruited us to the movement they created, and who LITERALLY gave their lives to this and us. Michele Ulriksen was the first Survivor to write about Victory Christian Academy in her book, Reform at Victory: a Survivor's Story. She is also responsible for recruiting her Victory Sister, Jeneen, to the frontlines. This is all for her. This is all for them. And for the children today, so that someday, there will be #nomoresurvivors

    RESPECT to our Sh-eros in public office, Senator Sara Gelser of Oregon and Representative Keri Ingle of Missouri. We see you, we hope to vote for your for higher office STAT. 

    For regular updates on Agape Boarding School or Circle of Hope Girls Ranch as it pertains to the investigation and leaks which would put us 6-feet-under if we didn't run through our allies, SUBSCRIBE to the Kansas City Star and don't miss out on any of the coverage that will contribute to Judy Thomas' upcoming Pulitzer. 

    It's time to relaunch #justiceforcornelius - hit us up if you're ready. It's been a year, since Cornelius Frederick was murdered on video for throwing a sandwich. It's been a YEAR and neither Lakeside, Sequel, Bain, or the anyone within the "Troubled Teen Industry" have answered for this "collateral commodity hiccup".

    Senate Hearing & Testimony on MO HB557 & 560

    This is the recording of the Senate Hearing on HB557 & HB560, by Rudy Viet & Keri Ingle. Survivors and Supporters converged again in Missouri to stand up for the thousands of children who have been abused in religious residential programs. The House Hearing videos are on our YouTube for those who have yet to see them (the Senate was audio only). 

    To testify (instructions on socials) register HERE: https://www.senate.mo.gov/senatewitnesssystem/Start.aspx

    More info on Circle of Hope, Agape Boys Ranch, Masters Ranch and the rest of the Lester Roloff IFB web visit our page on MO: https://talktroubled.org/right-to-rights-rally-missouri/

    Please join us in ending America's predatory prevalence for mass, legal, for profit, child abduction, trafficking, detainment, abuse and sometimes murder. It's been a long road in Missouri, it's up to the Senate know - tune back in for the debates.

A needed examination of a harmful industry

So thankful for the amazing work being done by Miranda and the TalkTroubled team. Love this show!

DJSugi1 ,

Incredible podcast on the Troubled Teen Industry

As a TTI survivor, I am blown away by all that Miranda and company are doing to change the conversation about the troubled teen industry. I appreciate the way they provide historical perspective on institutionalized abuse and LOVE them documenting protests/ calls to action in real time. The Provo episode conducted by Cadilina Devine was amazing. Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️
