There was a national treatment outfit that advertised that they could cure
addicts whether they wanted to recover or not. That was BS. Even the best programs have only about a 13% rate of recovery. However,If the person wants to change their life and stop using and is honest with their self and
follows a program, they will get better. At least the court ordered treatment
is an eye opener. I wish you well.

QUOTE=crazy;16644]I have been through a 10 month rehab while incarcerated.  For :chillpill1:  I used it to get me out early, that was the only reason I took part.  It was good, but I believe no one will change their lifestyle, any lifestyle, until they are ready.  Court mandated rehab isn\'t as effective as  voluntary, IMO anyway.  I do not mean any disrespect to you or your occupation by any means.   You have a much needed job, and you have my utmost respect.  :smiley-faces57:

Thanx,  crazy[/QUOTE]

I was an over the road trucker till I physically couldn\'t do it any more. Then I
read some books, went to Indianapolis and got certified to be an addiction counselor. So the last 8 years of work were in rehab units in hospitals. Retired now.
