Rehab Is For Suckers, So Try Something Else

Remember: The stated goal of most rehab facilities is “total abstinence forever” and the success rate of that is low. I mean it's really, really, really, low. Of course, when it doesn’t work, the individual is to blame, often times dismissed as “not ready" or "unwilling" etc. That's part of of it, but not to the degree to which the current paradigm fails. The science of addiction and possible medical interventions has all progressed, but most rehabs still prefer to be A.A. indoctrination vessels. And if that doesn't work? The solution is usually more rehab, of course.
