Does Summit Achievement work with troubled teens by using a "scared straight" model of intervention? - Summit Achievement
Summit Achievement has achieved being one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious accredited programs for struggling teens by providing our students and their families with high quality treatment, challenging academics and outdoor experiences. At times we are asked if we "scare straight troubled teens."
