I talked to several therapists about young male adults in recovery. My son was kicked out of Shadow Mountain Academy for taking up too much of their time. He resisted the idea of being "clean and sober".
What I have been told is that not being on board can be a part of the early process with people trying to recover. In other words, my son's behavior fell within the range of being "normal". I guess clinical director Bruce Dechert was not on board with this school of thought.
I still think this is an awful place to send your child.
