The Group

The Group is a feature length film and an attempt by filmmaker Bob Meehan to revisit his past in an effort to make sense of the 5 year journey he took through the world of adolescent drug abuse programs.

The Group itself is one such network, created by Bob Meehan and operated by his son-in-law and protege Clint Stonebraker, its so called purpose was to help rehabilitate the youth but this documentary sets out to expose it for what it really is, and that’s an organisation that aims for profits and operates on a cult-like mentality.

The Group claims to have rescued thousands of teens from the dark world of drug addition but on a number of occasions has been accused of enforcing cult-like practices in order to control those who take part and their families.

Through many interviews with former members, photo’s and expert witnesses, we learn of the struggles faced by these young people who were already at an all time low in their lives and how this abuse affected them later on in life.
