Frank Pucelik writes in the book "The Origins of Neuro Linguistic Programming":
I [Frank Pucelik] spent the next three or so years, while running Meta Institute Oklahoma, spending time with my son traveling to his races and creating and running two treatment programs (one for young people and, later, one for adults) in the Oklahoma City area. [...]
I recruited great staff and we created a model using the practices and principles from NLP, conjoint family systems, Gestalt, quality business practices, and the best of the “therapeutic community” systems I had been studying. During the third year of our operation, we (the House of Life) were selected by a research team from the US government (a national program called Youth at Risk) as the best young people’s treatment program in America.
Was the program treatment program for drug addicts and alcoholics that Frank Pucelik created really recognized as the best in the US by a research team of the US government?
