Sue Scheff: House Overwhelmingly Approves Legislation to Stop Child Abuse in Residential Treatment Programs

As a parent advocate and a victim of the Teen Help Industry when my daughter suffered at an unregulated program, I have personally fought this fight through trials and years of litigation to be a voice that is still being heard today. My organization, Parents Universal Resource Experts, continues on a daily basis as being a resource for parents - educating them on this daunting and confusing industry, usually known as - teen help.

It has been a long time coming, however the House has finally approves legislation to help protect children in teen help residential programs. The next stop is the Senate HELP committee (http://www.help.senate.gov/) so now we need to contact them about when the Senate will take up this important bill. Please take time to read more.

If you are in need of help for your teen, take the time you need to research programs and schools. Helpful hints and questions to ask schools and programs are listed on my website at http://www.helpyourteens.com/. My recently released book, “Wit’s End! Advice and Resources for Saving Out of Control Teens - A Mother and Daughter’s True Story”
