Brett Cary at RMA Writes in Rocky Mountain Times
Brett Carey, a teacher/counselor at Rocky Mountain Academy in North Idaho, wrote in the students' Rocky Mountain Times: "When people arrive here they are trapped inside the walls they have built to protect themselves. Walls to keep other people out. Walls to stay alone. Walls to ensure that 'no one can take what I have.' Walls to defend 'my stuff,' even if 'my stuff' is bad stuff. People have physical walls that keep them from being touched or hugged. They have walls that won't allow them to smoosh. Walls that prevent them from saying or hearing 'I love you." I loved watching the news when the [Berlin] Wall came down last year. I saw tears of joy and new prospects of hope. But my greatest pleasure has been watching the walls crumbling down here at RMA."

Heritage Treatment Center Graduation Brings Several Changes
Heritage Treatment Center, in Provo, Utah, graduated five students on June 27th. With this graduation, they started initiating several changes in their program. The boys in the program moved down the hill to the main part of the campus so the school will not be spread out so much. Also their optimum size will now be a little under 100 to be able to provide better service with their attachment model.
