Headlines: Senators Slam The Business of Residential Treatment

On this week’s episode we go deep on one headline: a recent Senate Finance Committee hearing in which Chairman Ron Wyden called the residential care business an inherently flawed model that intentionally puts children in unsafe situations. The hearing followed the release of a scathing report on the committee’s findings from a multi-year investigation into four of the biggest providers in that space.In this episode, we break down nine different clips from the nearly two hour hearing that speak to some of the major themes and topics covered.
