Movie: Without consent
Laura Mills is a rebellious teenager who spends her days getting drunk, listening to rock music and making out with several boyfriends. Her behavior gets worse when her brother David is kicked out of the house for theft and alcohol abuse. When it turns out she was involved in a drunk driving accident, her parents decide they have had enough. They are not able to control their daughter and send her to a private psychiatric center. It soon turns out that patients in this center are drugged and abused by the staff.
It sound familiar for many teenagers who have experienced the same. This movie from 1994 didn't get much attention despite showing the reality in many treatment centers.
