my name is alejandra , me and my two younger siblings were at pinehaven for behavioral problems. im going to stand out and say that i never encountered any physical abuse while living there. it was hard and maybe sometimes the staff got too angry and said things they shouldnt have but they really do want to help children. to all the people who have made reports, im not saying you are lying but this place is not a cult, and the worst abuse you might find there would be the large amounts of work theyd have you do while in trouble. that is not abuse tho. thats a punishment of manual labor. even tho i felt hurt by thing said sometimes, i believe that my houseparents loved me. one thing the ranch needs to work on,however, is the establishment of pyschiatric help for the emotionally broken. do not condemn alll of these people, most that i met were good people. thank you.
