Thank you for publishing the Straight to Pathway article. I admire your courage and dedication to reporting about such a controversial, as some folks claim it, drug treatment method.
I view this method as systematic child abuse, which is a crime. People, agencies or businesses that perpetrate it should be held fully accountable by the law. Abusing kids to get them off drugs is not the answer. Furthermore, anyone (especially a parent) who agrees with this systematically abusive treatment needs to check a mirror and understand they are also responsible for aiding and abetting child abuse by advocating and buying it.
There is much that needs to be said about why this treatment is systematically abusive. I encourage your readers to research more about why it needs to stop and not proliferate at taxpayers' expense.
In the article, Terri Nissley claimed ISAC is a "bunch of whackos who want to legalize drugs." This is preposterous. For the record, the ISAC Corp. mission statement clearly states: "Our mission is to expose abuse, civil rights violations and fraud perpetuated through privately owned facilities for juveniles."
