Apparently her org used to be called "Straight Inc.", and there seems to be a good deal of controversy about it:

" The treatment modality popularized under that Straight trademark and sometimes called "Therapeutic Communities", is neither therapeutic nor conducive to community building. It was not invented by Art Barker, nor even by Chuck Dederich. It is an implementation of thought reform techniques borrowed from Korean POW camps. And this was well known to and carefully hidden from public view by the founders of that program. Under NO circumstances should any person be subjected to this kind of treatment, most especially not by force of law."
