The first 2 signs of abuse is for the abuser to get the victim isolated, and then cut off from family and friends. What the program is doing with Matt ~ the stabilization/isolation unit, and no phone contact with me unless supervised fits that perfectly. Then the abuser can brainwash them, and break them, and mold them to be how they want the victim to be. I woke up in a panic. I have been abused, I know the drill. It is a highly accredited program, I am pretty sure this isn't happening. Yet my whole body is in high alert. What should I do? I have tried telling them I don't agree, this isn't right ~ they keep telling me I am the problem and to back off.
