Rehab is Crap

Postby Johei » Thu Sep 03, 2020 4:57 am

Over the years, I have taken sooo many of my friends to rehab.
After a while, I started noting a pattern...

I would bring S. in because he was hooked on pills. They would get them off them by putting him on other pills. They would send him home.
18 months later I would be back with him because he was hooked on THOSE pills.
Rinse, repeat...

If I ran the joint, people would go home CLEAN!

My friend L. went in because she smoked heroin.
They would tell her to make a list of 12 things she needed to feel happy, to feel safe, so she could kick the habit.

Here goes: 'Well, I need to feel comfortable, supported, have my family around me, get my daughter back, my boyfriend can't smoke weed because it triggers me...'

Me: 'Ummm... How about... I WON"T USE THE CRAP ANYMORE? or (good one) I WILL DELETE ALL MY DEALERS' PHONE NUMBERS?'

But no, that's never on the list. F that, it's a list of excuses to keep on using. If any of those rules are broken, it's : 'AHA! Now I am free to use, and it's not my fault!'

I quit crack and weed, and I have a 1-step program: STOP USING. That should always be step one.
Honestly, what are we paying these people for?
