The Program: Where is Robert Lichfield now?

The Program: Cons, Cults and Kidnapping dropped on Netflix this week, and it has audiences gripped. The docuseries explores the ‘troubled teen’ industry and the World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools (WWASP) founder, Robert Lichfield.

WWASP is a company based in Utah, in the US, which set up special schools in the ’90s for troubled kids. Ivy Ridge ridge is one such school, and the focus of the Netflix documentary. Parents thought they were helping their teens by sending them away, but the reality was far more sinister.
