Recently I had the great pleasure to meet this new up and coming Director Todd Nilssen. We met at The Drug Policy Alliance Conference in Atlanta this past weekend where they screened his new Documentary, THE LAST STOP.
This is a very disturbing, honest, critical expose of the abusive Teen Industry school for kids who got into trouble and children who barely did anything wrong. I have been following this story since the early days 2009 – 2010 of blogging on the famous anti AA blog www.stinkin-thinkin.com. Unlike Straight, Inc. which was based on AA 12 steps, Elan was based on Confrontation, Tough Love Tactics, Scream Therapy…but there weren’t any Therapists or PhD’s administering the groups. There are many of these so called schools still in operation.
