I'm genesis & I was in that place for 8mnths. We suffered in that place, we were placed on "anti?psychotics" without even seeing a psychiatrist. Honestly, this place brought out the worst of us. The meds we were given would knock us out so that we wouldnt "AWOL"at night or give em trouble. I got to admit that some staff were cool but most of em were a?Holes... Darrels breakfast was awsome! genrdz956@yahoo.com is my email...get at me if u member the time of the riot on apollo for defending meagan!

hi my name is brandy minx i was at T.A.C.T. for a year and a half. i am 18 now and i was there about two and a half years ago. everyones writing about this girl who hung herself in her restroom well i want all of you people to know that im the one who found her like that and it hurt me alot because she was my best friend. i understand why she did this to herself because beleive me i would have done the same thing if the kids and staff were so damn disrespectful to me like they were to her. she did not diserve to be mistreated like that. she was the first person to ever talk to me when i set foot in the doors of Endeavor. i was so scared of all the girls that were in this unit. she made me feel comfortable. i think it is so f***ed up that after jamie commited suicide that the main staff that was so rude to her soon became one of the unit directors. if it was up to me she would have gotten fired right away. this b***h was so rude to me and because of her i don't let anyone talk s**t to me. these people would always keep her in her room for no reason.

Hi, my name is Amber Smith, and I am 21 now and I spent a total of 2yrs in that Hell hole they call a treatment center. I was leadership 28 the day i discharged from that place. It was no walk in the park. The restraints are horriable and inhumane. I swear I discharged from that place with more problems than when i got there. Everything went fine as long as you kept your mouth shut. I witnessed a staff member punch a girl in the face when I was on columbia. You couldn't say anything because its your word against theres and besides you had to see these people everyday. I was one of the first kids to come over to tatc from cambell A. Griffin. Hince the name Apollo 13. Mrs Molinas caseload had 13 kids so we named the units. I dont know if things have changed since then but i wouldnt send my sick dog to these people. Caseworkers remove children from abuse to place them in a lockdown facility with no cameras leaving us to the staffs disposal while I was at cag a staff member was molesting my roommate but yet no one cared. Currently I attend college to become a social worker and I know what its like to be in a crap hole like that, where no one believes you or protects you. As a future caseworker i will do my damndest to make sure places like these get shut down.... Oh, yeah, I still know the charge and philsophy!!! How can you forget its programmed in to you like your a robot that, and line norms..

well im juanita garcia what i remember about tact was it was bad. i was never on level or when i got on it i would lose it. it wasnt the best place because when some of my peers got restrained the staff went overboard with it like mr perez and mr esquivel and ms palanca mr terrell and that old supervisior mr bradley i hated when he worked lol. i was a favorite to quite a few staff. like ms lewis ms johnson i liked it because i have alot of memories some gooid some bad even though it wasnt a good place i learned a whole lot in the year and almost 6 moths i was there. i made a few friends which i miss til this day. sometimes i wish i would have done good. but overall nobody needs to be there.

Hi my name is Matilda Jones. I was in Tatc for 6 months. was in there for so many problems that I had. I wanted to tell other people about TATC. In tatc it was okay sometimes , but it wasn't that good also. I hated there sometimes. But I was there when a girl named Jannie hung herself in the shower of her own room. She was on ISP. Whenever the staff told us the next day that she didn't make it, I already knew that she was already gone when the staff noticed it. I miss her. Sometimes Tatc don't understand. I remembered that almost all of us got sick really bad, and had staph infection. They need to make it more sanitary. There are some staff that do care about us. Like Riaz, Diaz, and other staff's there. So if you know me from tatc please email me at jmatilda34@yahoo
Thanks for reading this review about tatc.

I was placed in texas adolescent treatment center for many reasons I was there about 1year and a half. It started good then turned bad. .you can never guess how i felt if you there then you knew how we were treated. Some staff where cool then others were just playing rude. I remember times when my good friend would yell out of her room for me to help her i still hear her screaming in my dreams. I remember the day that girl passed away they made us all go back to our units (i was on atlantis at the time) and thats when the clincal director can and told us that a girl had commited sucide in her bathroom and that if any of us felt like we couldn't make in school then to stay on the unit. that day i was put ISP (close supvision) for sucidual thoughts. I was sent to a mental hospital and 1 month later i was discharged on a bad note-basically they couldn't handle me

my daughter was at this facility and she tells me horror stories about it. you should reconsider before placing your child at this horrible place. Make sure and ask for State Inspection Surveys. Also ask for any deaths that have occurred there (and there has been). You could be making a worse mistake than you realize if you dont check into the fine print of this facility.

Pros: short term facility

Cons: Hard to get any one to talk and tell how things are going, indifferent attitude from staff

i spent 3 months at this center when i was 16-17 years old i spent christmas there as well as my 17th birthday, it was quite an experience. I am not gonna say it was awesome and i would love to go back, but i did get alot of help. No the food was not the best and we did not always get the best treatment, but i mean u cant expect luxurious treatment for a bunch of teen delinquents! We were all there for a reason some worse than others but we all had a choice to make it for the better or the worse. while i was inpatient there i made my status and went on many outings and attended all the extracurricular activities because i decided to behave and get better in my treatment not digress.....there fore i learned alot. Yeah i seen alot of wrong doing but i CHOSE not to be a part of it....its all about choice, if u work the program it will work for you. I truly do believe TATC works. There were some bad staff members as well as many good ones who wanted to help us do better. I made the most of my experience and i am now living my life to the fullest despite my behaviorial disabilites. No child wants to be there but it does help. As far as physical abuse no i never witnessed it, except for from the children. Like i said u got to want to get better in order for a place like TATC to work. I do reccommend it for serious cases.

Hello everyone I would just like to take a moment to inform you that Texas Adolescent Treatment Center or T.A.T.C(pronounced tack) as many residents and staff refer to it, IS indeed a horrible place I was admitted there about two and a half years ago at the age of 17. it was my first and last time being in a so called lock down facility and i still have nightmares about my experience there. Aside from the less than desirable food,and the less than perfect sanitary practices such as sharing towels that should have been washed in hot water and bleach or at least bleach instead of Vo5 shampoo, but I guess that was just a form of punishment there. There was also gross mistreatment of residents and authority was being over abused i felt trapped for the for months i was there and I know many people think that oh these kids say these things because they are bad and they hated that place because they were tough on them and that they were just resentful after being made to follow the rules., and I say, say what you must but i have not forgotten the mistreatment I suffered the humiliation,the physical and verbal abuse, and the many of staff who sat by and did nothing they couldn't take it so they just left but they told no one of it I guess they figure if I can't see it then its not my problem but it is the exact opposite you saw it so you are every bit as responsible as the people that are doing it you see if this wasn't the truth I would have been moved on with my life i am now married with a life of my own and a brand new son and I am up to great things and i owe this all to boys and girls town for rebuilding me but you see I can't move on not while this place continually gets worst and children are still getting hurt thats not why they are there it is supposed to be a safe place of structure to reconstruct ones disruptive way of life but its not so what are we going to do or don't you care?

This place is horrible i was a resident there for 7 months and during that time manyt kids had been hurt and mistreated by staff. Also many staff members quit because they could not deal with watching the kids there being mistreated. Also a child recently committed suicide there and did not make it. I still remember the panic that was in everyone's face.
