From the Website

Logan River Academy is a member of NATSAP, a non-accrediting membership body that does not enforce any ethical nor professional standards on its members. Though Logan River Academy’s academic program is accredited and they are licensed as a residential treatment center by the State of Utah, only Logan River Academy’s academic program is accredited – not its residential program. This is directly against U.S. FTC & GAO advice. The American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry advises that punishments should be entirely prohibited in residential treatment programs. In addition, the U.S. Surgeon General has found Logan River Academy’s style of program to be ineffective.

There is also an LRA Wiki that is meant to document the rules, consequences and other details of student life inside the institution. This is information the institution does not want published.
