Teen Boarding Schools In Iowa
Troubled Teen Boarding Schools are not found in every state. Every state has a unique set of laws associated with holding teens against their will. Some states will allow a youth to refuse service as young as age twelve. Many states still allow parents to make choices for their teens up until they reach the age of eighteen. There are no states that we know of that will permit parents to place an 18 year old against their will.

Iowa State Information
The State of Iowa is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States of America, an area often referred to as the "American Heartland." It is bordered by Minnesota to the north, Wisconsin and Illinois to the east, Nebraska and South Dakota to the west, and Missouri to the south. It is the 29th state of the United States, having joined the Union on December 28, 1846. Iowa is comprised of 99 counties. Iowa's capital and largest city is Des Moines and its residents are known as Iowans.
Originally inhabited by the Ioway people, a Native American Siouan tribe, modern Iowa was a part of the French colony of New France. After the Louisiana Purchase, Iowa was settled by immigrants from Western Europe and Scandinavia, who laid the foundation for a farming and agriculture-based economy which continues to this day. It is officially known as the Hawkeye State, and unofficially known as the "Tall Corn State."
