Szalavitz makes Washington Post

In clear, concise language Ms. Szalavitz's asks the same question that I once heard Stanton Peele ask about tough love, "Why in the world would you want to make someone who obviously already feels bad about himself, feel worse?" And Ms. Szalavitz knows firsthand of what she writes. She bravely admits she is a former teen addict who used drugs to try to feel better about her own self. She mentions Straight. The Post will hold an on-line forum on Monday Jan 30 at 1 PM ET to discuss her article. You can submit your questions now or during the forum. Ms. Szalavitz is the author of Help At Any Cost which will be released next month. article discussion forum

My parents signed me into Straight Inc when I was 15 years old. I am now 33 and I still remember it like it was yesterday. I have only recently found that there are Straight Survivor groups on the net. I am glad to see that there are people who are speaking out against the injustice done to so many children in the name of love. I will never forget what happened to me and so many others while we were in Straight. Thank you for being an advocate.
