    Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder ARE diagnoses and they are not new. These diagnoses have been around for several decades. NOVA is not a state facility.

    To Amy: Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder are not really a diagnosis. It just refers to kids that wont listen or do what someone tells/asks them to do. Basicially, just a hard headed kid. The only treatment is a good old fashioned dose of whooping. "Take one and call me in the morning"

    Apparently certain procedures had to be done before the news was notified. Nova is not the same as Dobbs, who has had several juveniles escape lately. Its for kids with behavorial problems not for the ones that have trouble with the law. I pray they find her soon.

    Everyone's tax money is helping fund these centers. Most of them don't have the qualified people that these kids need or the supervision these kids need. It's a waste of money to continue with these private companies. Open the state facilities back up, staff them with the qualified people that are needed and let's work on this problem. "Behavioral" is the correct term. A lot of these kids are classified as Oppositional Defiant Behavior or Conduct Disorders which is a fairly new diagnoses but it means the psychiatrists can get paid, these facilities can get your money and the parents can often get a government check.

    For Anonymous who commented on this girl's hair: I'm pretty sure she hadn't planned on posing for pictures that day. God only knows what could happen to this girl who obviously needs help; because these fools at BHC just let her walk away. I think it is very childish that all you can find to comment on is her hair. I pray she can get the help she needs!!!!
