Movie: Aaron Bacon

This heartbreaking movie covers one of the most well-known cases where youth had been taken to the wilderness due to the wishes of their parents to get better only to die as result of the "Tough Love" treatment.

Unfortunately his death was neither the first, the only or the latest. This tragedy was just a number in a long, long statistic.

As late as 2010 the latest known death occured in Texas treatment program during a wilderness outing.

Can wilderness therapy be conducted in a safe way. The managers of the wilderness programs claim this but as teens continue to be listed among those who never returned such claims must be regarded as doubtful.

You have to judge. Please watch the movie and decide for you self.
