The Michigan research also shows that the “treatment versus custody” debate is bogus, as concern and control are both essential.  Successful programs find ways to address developmental needs of youth as well as societal needs to stop destructive behavior.  This requires adults who are authoritative but not authoritarian.  These data contradict the currently popular boot-camp notion that the harsher the institutional experience, the greater is the deterrent effect.  In reality, troubled youth need safe, positive environments where they can form corrective social bonds with caring adults and peers.
