The troubled teen industry refers to a broad range of youth residential programs aimed at struggling teenagers. The term encompasses various facilities and programs, including youth residential treatment centers, wilderness programs, boot camps, and therapeutic boarding schools. The troubled teen industry has encountered many scandals due to child abuse, institutional corruption, and deaths. A child has no parental or due process protections in these facilities and the staff oftentimes have no training. If you or someone you love has been hurt or died in such a facility, Mortensen & Milne is a firm that can help you obtain compensation for your losses.
