Back to Basics Christian Military Academy
Back to Basics Christian Military Academy was / is a behavior modification facility located in Lauderhill, Florida.
The program was forced to close down after a death, but it could be up and running in another location because it operated without license, so records about its existence is hard to find. Last known location was 520 NW Fifth St, Hallandale Beach.
But a search done January 2008 showed an address called 600 Southwest 3rd Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33060, a property listed to a church called "Adonep USA Inc".
