“In and out of rehab,” inspires visions of dollar signs for many alcohol and drug treatment centers. It also represents a sort of mantra, when speaking to addicts or their families. Treatment centers notoriously fail to treat their patients with a combination of physiological and psychological solutions. These patients don’t want a spa they want help. Many addicts never chose this behavior; it is thrust upon them at conception, and materializes in the womb. Psychologists believe that thumb sucking is a direct ancestor of addiction. Babies do it because it comforts them and it feels good. Adults also find comfort and pleasure in order to escape life’s constant battering. Whatever the reason addicts need help on many levels and rehabilitation clinics fail to decipher the individual levels that will ease or control an addiction.
The results don’t match the promises laid out in rehabilitation centers’ advertising. Their promises purposely fail guaranteeing a return visit, which corresponds to more money. Sadly, the centers that do offer a comprehensive program and sincerely work to lead someone out of addiction are so expensive that few families or individuals can afford their expertise. In addition, each state regulates rehabilitation centers, performs inspections, and has detailed codes for them to follow. Within each state there are centers that follow the codes and centers that balance on the code’s proverbial pillar. But they all have one commonality that guarantees “an antidote” for addicts.
This article explains how to research and evaluate the truth behind the rehabilitation center’s publications. In August of 2010 Washingtonpost.com’s Bankole A. Johnson’s article “We’re addicted to rehab. It doesn’t even work,” explained that there are no private or governmental agencies that require mandatory monitoring of success and failure rates of rehabilitation centers. Those that do report a success rate exaggerate the numbers based on the day of the addict’s release when they are clean and sober. Or the centers play with their verbiage using loaded words like “100% successfully completed the program” and only apply it to those who left after the required time period. Even the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) find it difficult to follow up on the percentage of patients a month, six months, or even years later. This is because so many rehabilitation centers don’t report their data or just don’t work.
