RESEARCH RELATED ANALYSIS OF A PROBLEM: THE TROUBLED TEEN INDUSTRY AND THE HORRIFIC REHAB CENTERS


The spread of behaviour deemed ‘inappropriate, immoral or otherwise socially unacceptable” has created a radical backlash from hard liners, especially in the US. The research you are about to do will lead you to focus on the extreme measures resorted to in order to tackle drug abuse, inappropriate behaviour and the like. In your essay, describe the problem and suggest how it may be dealt with. One word of warning: these links are not for the faint hearted.
