Description

Some of Arizona's most severely troubled youth were sexually abused at facilities that were supposed to heal their addiction and behavioral problems, an Arizona Republic investigation found. In some cases, the sexual and physical abuse came from adult staff members, amid lax oversight from state regulators. The series found that Arizona authorities had taken little action regarding the problems at the treatment centers, and had no standards to measure whether the treatment the clients received was effective, despite pouring millions of tax dollars into the facilities.
