The young residents at Roane Academy have behavioral issues.
Sometimes, those issues involve delinquency. Other times, they are in custody because of dependent neglect in the home.
“Typically, you get a lot of drugs and alcohol offenses, that kind of behavior — delinquent behavior, drugs and alcohol,” said Steve Norris, Omni Visions president and CEO.
Omni Visions is the company that owns Roane Academy.
Norris said none of the youth at the residential treatment center are suspected of extreme violence.
