From Booklist

In this follow-up to The Program (2013), Sloane flees with the last pill that can revive stolen memories, even as the threat of betrayal surrounds her. Sloane ruefully compares her life to a “low-budget action movie,” and the novel’s chase shows little sign of wrapping up. Amid the fast-paced adventure is the welcome resumption of Sloane’s sexy-sweet romance with James. The strong writing masks some plot holes (Really? Only one pill is left?), and there is little backstory provided. Still, fans of psychological thrillers will happily suspend small disbeliefs for the overall thrill of the ride. Grades 10-12. --Diane Colson

KIRKUS REVIEW
In this wrenching sequel to The Program (2013), a few desperate teens race to save what's left of their memories and salvage the tatters of their lives.

After being discharged from The Program, a facility developed to stop the teen-suicide epidemic by removing teens' memories, Sloane and James have reignited the passion of their former love. The Program's cure, however, isn't foolproof, and memories can "crash back," causing brain bleeds and insanity. Moreover, The Program has instituted procedural lobotomies and, with the government's backing, is beginning to make teen "behavior modification" mandatory. Sloane and James join a group of rebels intent on destroying The Program, and Sloane holds the one last pill that returns memories. In constant pursuit of the rebels, The Program wants to destroy the pill, but the doctor behind The Program, having seen the error of his ways, seems to want to reproduce it. The story is unrelentingly dramatic: "I put the blade to my neck and began to saw," recounts Sloane's friend Realm, describing his anguish. Compelling questions left dangling from the first book as to the origins of the epidemic, whether "behavioral contagion" and/or media hype, are explored.

Offering great appeal to reflective romantics, this jarring thriller looks at the cost of societal complacency while lauding heroism and remembrance. (Dystopian romance. 14-18)

The Treatment was one of my most anticipated reads of 2014. I absolutely loved The Program and I was dying to know what happened to Sloane and James. When I first started reading The Treatment I seriously questioned my sanity. This is the writing I liked so much? These are the characters I fell in love with? Having read The Program almost a year ago the details aren’t completely clear in my mind, but I didn’t think my memory was that bad.

My favorite part about The Program was Slone and James’ relationship. It was meeting them that made me realize how much I appreciate already established relationships in YA. The fact that Sloane and James loved each other and were together felt so real and I loved that although there was romance in the story, the story was really about other things than their romance. The Program was also an emotional read for me, it really made me think about what makes us us and if it’s worth being alive if you can’t remember what makes you you.

The biggest surprise about The Treatment for me was my lack of emotional investment. The story picks up right after The Program ends with Sloane and James in possession of one of “the treatment” pill and on the run for The Program. Shortly after the story starts they meet up with rebels that Michael Realm sent to find them and they go to a safe (ware)house in Utah. The Sloane and James we meet here were so different from the Sloane and James that I remember from The Program. Sloane was much more passive and lost than I remember her being (minus the time immediately after she left The Program) and James was a possessive jackass. Where were the people I fell in love with in The Program?

4.5 stars. I have to say that this series is one of the most unique ones that I have read. The Program was fantastic start, and I was excited to see what would happen to Sloane and James in the conclusion of their story. It makes me smile thinking about these two people who, despite losing the memories of their love and relationship, found their way back to each other. The Treatment was full of interesting twists and turns that kept me on my toes and rapidly flipping the pages. There were moments when I wanted to smack a few people around, but I was definitely satisfied in the end. I am looking forward to reading more from Suzanne Young in the future.

I love "The Program" and "The Treatment" so much! I'm so sad to see it end. This was such a great book. There were times where I would find myself tearing up. Or find myself smiling. I fell in love with the characters. I absolutely love Suzanne Young for writing these two books.

This book. Ahh. I just read the first one a couple of weeks ago and I was immediately sucked into the story. A dystopian story…that seems plausible. Unlike a lot of the dystopian stories…which I love, don’t get me wrong. But this one is about suicide becoming an epidemic. In a world where suicide rates are increasing, this story isn’t so farfetched.

Overall, this book is a great sequel to The Program and it wraps everything up nicely…at the end. But I’ll get back to that.

Also from this point on, I’m probably going to be revealing some spoilers from the first book…so, Step One: read my review on the first one (link above). Step Two: Read The Program. Step Three: Love The Program. Step Three 1/2: If you didn’t love it, tell me whyyy. I want to hear what you have to say. Step 4: Read this review. Step 5: Read The Treatment. Step 4 and 5 are interchangeable. Okay the end.

First, I just want to talk about how I capital-L Loved how Suzanne Young wrote these two books together. This was a perfect series for a duology because in the first book Sloane slowly loses her memories to the Program. In this book, it’s all about finding herself again, finding who she is despite The Program because Sloane is way too BA to let any people tell her who she is and who she isn’t. She is Sloane Freaking Barstow and she is her own person. I really liked that.

Second…..I HAD NO IDEA WHO TO TRUST IN THIS BOOK. That epilogue from the first book (see review) had me questioning quite literally everyone in the book. Everyone’s memories are faulty and I was just going back and forth on my theories and bah adjisoadjsiajxisaodjs.

Wow just wow I really enjoyed and loved The Program that I could not wait too continue to read the next book The Treatment. Ohh boy I am so glad I started to read this bad boy as soon as I finished with The Program. The Treatment starts off exactly where The Program left off where Sloane and James run away together from the Program so they won't get to them and erased they memories again. They want to find there friends and join the rebels who are against the program. But they have a problem since they are on the run from the program they have issued an amber alert for both Sloan and James there are road blocks every where. Plus they did not find there friends where the were suppose to meet up so they stop to think and to make plans how they where getting out of there home state and talk about especially the treatment that Realm sister gave to Sloane on behalf of Realm. While there were talking there was a white van that stop in front of Sloane and James car at first they panic and thought there were handlers and where about to drive right through them if it was necessary. But they stop on there tracks when the saw that a girl and a boy came out of the van and announce to them not to be scare that there are not from the program there are the rebels. And there where we meet Dallas and her best friend Cas. First it was a rocking start for Sloane and James to get along with Dallas and her crew but they did manage to tolerate each other.Read more ›
