Issue Overview

The Troubled Teen Industry (TTI), which claims to “fix” struggling youth, warehouses an estimated 120,000-200,000 young people annually. Non-evidenced-based approaches, including solitary confinement, physical restraint, sexual violence, and conversion therapy, are routinely used to control youth in these facilities.

Furthering the confusion, marketing, and fear-mongering entice vulnerable decision-makers to place youth in these facilities. Despite decades of confirmed abuse, youth are continually sent to these programs, highlighting the stark lack of education about the TTI and its abuses that exists in communities.
