The Seed Indeed- Part 1


The Seed Indeed- Part 1 – The Seed was an experimental drug rehabilitation program located in Broward and Dade county Florida in the 70’s. The Seed was operated by Art Barker who was a recovering alcoholic and failed stand up comedian. Using some of the basic principles of AA and incorporating peer pressure group-cult techniques, he manipulated many parents into submitting their children into a program with no proven results. Run by former drug addicts and court ordered felons, the program quickly lost its financial support when the exaggerated claims of success were made public and questions about the programs methods came under scrutiny. The Seed is believed to be one of the predecessor for various other gulag type drug rehabs which abuse and mistreat young children all around the country including Straight,Inc.,Kids helping Kids and Pathway Family Center, which are all shut down The video is archived television footage provided by Florida Moving Image Archives Miami-Dade Public Library.
