Paris Hilton testified before the Utah State Capitol on Monday in favor of a bill that would regulate treatment centers for teenagers, referencing her own “traumatizing” experience with the Provo Canyon School in the 1990s.
“Although Provo Canyon School marketed itself as a premier treatment center, it was as if hell itself was on Earth,” Hilton said to Utah lawmakers. “I cried myself to sleep every single night, praying I would wake up from this nightmare.”
