Re: Vista RTC Utah School- any stories or reviews??

I appreciate your position, and do indeed understand your response! I was the "creepy ass yoga instructor" as well as a music teacher, collegiate expert, and professional liaison between the school and the therapy programs. Having a Phd in cognitive psychology provides me a unique position and intense training I wish your therapist had undergone a Vista.I would not by any mean claim that Vista helps no one. But I would most whole heartedly claim that the majority don't get help there. Further more, the research I have been collecting support the abusive nature of the program there. I am VERY glad that Vista helped you, the vast majority of children attending the program don't get help; they do, on the other hand, leave Vista needing years of therapy to deal with the abusive treatment paradigms Vista therapists commonly employ.

If you would like to provide comments for our program evaluation it would b of great help, my team's research is not meant to railroad a specific program but to identify what works and what doesn't. Based on evidence I truly beielve Vista to be among the worst of programs delivering residential treatment, if you have real evidence to suggest otherwise it SHOULD be included in our presentation. You may email me at
