One Young Adult's Perspective of the Cost of Restraint

"Being restrained costs a lot!  I was abused before I was put in programs.  Being restrained made me feel the same way - except staff are supposed to help you, right?

...It made me worse and took away my self esteem.  How is that supposed to help me feel better?  I don't get it. 

Wouldn't it be cheaper if staff just listened?"
