Summary The article investigated reports that several teenagers had died under suspicious circumstances in Utah-based wilderness therapy treatment programs. Using court documents, medical records, and dozens of interviews with present and former teen "clients," parents, law enforcement officials, and camp directors and counselors, Vibe documented that the three teens had died needlessly from dehydration, heat exhaustion, and a perforated ulcer--deaths attributable in part to the absence of qualified medical and psychological staffers.
