The Parliamentary Ombudsman: The Klokkergården Collective uses disturbing methods to treat young people with substance abuse and behavioural problems

The Klokkergården Collective in Hedmark, which treats young people with substance abuse and behavioural problems, uses disturbing methods, according to a report from the Parliamentary Ombudsman following a visit to the institution in June this year. ‘The pressure put on young people through the collective’s use of involuntary motivational trips is a cause for concern,’ says Parliamentary Ombudsman Aage Thor Falkanger.
