This according to The Sun, who are often wrong and tend to falsify information. I have unique insight on what will happen if she does end up going to the Dr. Drew-recommended residential treatment center Diamond Ranch Academy, in Utah.
I spent over a year in such a place when I was a teen just guzzling stolen alcohol and running away from my super nice home and super nice mother for no apparent reason.
Here’s what goes on:
- Find 7 grey hairs in your Mexican casserole from careless cafeteria workers / try not to puke because they’ll think you have an eating disorder.
- Run away for a few days and realize sleeping in trees and stealing foundation from Kmart is boring.
- HATE half the staff with a fiery passion, idolize and befriend others (especially the intern types who swear and listen to good music because they aren’t that much older than you), forget the rest.
- Meet other crazies who become your lifelong friends.
- Realize, not by therapy, but by looking at the people around you that your problems just aren’t that serious. (Because you’re not a freaking foster kid with schizophrenia.)
- Have trouble re-adjusting to life at home after leaving the place you never wanted to go. (Like prisoners and war veterans, you miss the comradery and structure.)
Granted, the place she’s going to looks way snazzier than the haunted farm with extra high fences that I was at, and definitely a thousand times better than my actual high school.
I also highly doubt she’ll be able to stay there for the recommended 8-12 months because she’s a famous kid whose own relatives have holier-than-thou rule-breaking syndrome.
