Troubled Youth Ranches

This Friday, Oct. 11, 2013 photo shows a sign and mailbox at the Tierra Blanca Ranch, a facility for troubled youths near Hilsboro, N.M. There are few options for parents with troubled youths, and in that vacuum, a relatively unregulated, off-the-grid industry of reform youth camps has flourished, despite a decade of high-profile cases alleging beatings and other abuse at some camps. Tierra Blanca was raided on Oct. 11 amid allegations of abuse. (AP Photo/Juan Carlos Llorca)
