Protecting the Rights of Vulnerable People in Nevada
When adults or adolescents have problems with drug and alcohol addiction or get into trouble for criminal offenses, treatment centers are often the best—or only—solution. Unfortunately, residents can be abused in both adult and juvenile treatment facilities, which are often in remote locations, far from the scrutiny of parents or drop-in visitors.
It is shocking that sexual assault or physical abuse are perpetrated by other residents—or staff responsible for the medical, behavioral, or psychiatric treatment of this vulnerable population—but it does happen. People can and do face abuse and neglect at substance abuse treatment centers, behavioral health centers, inpatient mental health centers, juvenile “boot camps,” sober living group homes, and other facilities.

If you are facing a situation of neglect or abuse in a residential treatment center anywhere in Nevada, contact the Nursing Home Justice Center in Las Vegas for a free consultation regarding your legal rights.

Such abuse and neglect can include:

- starvation, dehydration, or forced exercise
- unnecessary or punitive sedation or physical restraint
- negligence in medical treatment, supervision, or resident safety
- physical assault
- child abuse or child molestation
- rape or sexual assault by counselors or other residents
