Let’s Talk About Shepherd’s Hill Abuse Claims
As a parent seeking treatment and healing for your troubled teen, their safety is top priority. With that, any suggestion of abuse within a residential program is a cause of great concern. And rightly so! Unfortunately, Shepherd’s Hill Academy has fallen victim to false accusations of abuse intended to sway parents from choosing the program for their child. Please allow us to set the record straight.
