Has any one out there ever heard of this controversial teen rehab that was in EP in the late 1980s?

Default KIDS of El Paso

Yes, indeed. There was a very controversial adolescent drug rehabilitation facility located on Boeing Street from 1986-1989 that was featured in the El Paso news daily, both in the El Paso Times and the Herald Post, for allegations of false imprisonment, coercion, and brainwashing.

The program is now considered to have been a cult by some of the leading experts in the field of cultic studies. I am just curious to learn if there is anyone here that remembers this program from news stories or knew of anyone that was involved.

Already Did See Your Hotmail. This Was Not Something I Discuss Openly. Not A Good Memory.

When I have more time I will need to look at that web page more. Sounds like an awful place.

Default Levow and Muhnay

Thanks for the link, LEVOW. That is a website I started in 2001. At the present time, it's going through a major overhaul and I have been updating things for quite a while. Most pages aren't accessable to the public currently as they are still under construction.

Muhnay, you may have known someone that was in there as well. You once mentioned dating a sibling of someone that is now deceased in northeast EP. That deceased individual (D.W.) had a best friend that was in the program. PM me and I'll share the details.

Chuco, its sad to hear about the abuse that took place in that facility, i really really liked your website, as soon as i started reading, i was hooked.I pass through Boeing everyday on my way to work, yesterday, i was looking for the building, but i was unable to locate it.Whre is it exactly?.. Anyway, i again congratulate you, on surviving that awful ordeal and look forward to reading more as you update your website.
