In September 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Wilderness Treatment Center for allegedly misleadingly marketing the services and housing it provides to youth suffering from substance abuse and other behavioral issues. Specifically, plaintiffs claim that the center represents that it offers a safe environment, adequate supervision, and counseling when, according to the complaint, the center does not maintain the staff, facilities, and other arrangements necessary to provide the promised services.
