The New Mexico Children, Youth, and Families Department continues to grapple with issues in child welfare services following the closure of the problematic Desert Hills facility.
Brian Blalock, the Secretary of the New Mexico CYFD, revealed that 23 children under state custody are placed in out-of-state institutions run by Tennessee's Acadia Health®.
Acadia Health® ran a licensed residential treatment facility, Desert Hills, for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and behavioral issues.
The lawsuit alleged that Familyworks, a New Mexico nonprofit company run by Desert Hills, placed the 8-year-old girl into a treatment foster care home with Garcia and his wife, despite having prior knowledge and reports of Garcia sexually abusing foster children.
The jury awarded $80 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages against Acadia Health®.

Sexual Assault Info To Prepare Individuals
What is sexual assault?
An act in which one intentionally sexually touches another person without that person's consent or coerces or physically forces them to engage in a sexual action against their will.
The effects of child sexual abuse include:
Post-traumatic stress disorder;
Propensity to re-victimization in adulthood; and
Physical injury to the child.
Often, sexual assault on a child is not reported by the child because:
Children are too young to recognize their victimization;
They were threatened or bribed by the abuser;
They feel confused by fearing the abuser;
They are afraid no one will believe them; and,
They blame themselves or believe the abuse is a punishment.
Compensation Begins With A Free, Online Case Review
Victims of abuse—and the families that suffered with them—deserve the compensation and justice they deserve from healthcare providers that resist delivering proper payouts.
