Ugh! Another way to discourage communities from providing low cost, effective services at home rather than shipping kids off to residential treatment centers. If individual communities refuse to put the effort into providing appropriate local services, they should not be rewarded with a greater % of state dollars to pay $700 a day for ineffective, dangerous, but easy residential care for kids.
