A VA medical center employee. You should see what goes on in those places. If you want real health care, go to a real hospital.

She will be back on the drugs either thru theft or prosttution. Once a drug user always a drug user. The VA medical centers are full of drug program graduates who have resorted to prostituting themselves for their drugs.

Anonymous you are wrong on that one. While the rate of relapse in very high for drug addicts, please dont stereotype the whole group. I was a hopeless addict. Over 500 dollars a day in cocaine and heroin(or a pharmaceutical sub). I was ready to die. That was over 14 years ago. I went to rehab, I got cleaned and to date have stayed that way. I have seen many come and go over those years. The ones that continue to stay clean and stay involved are the best hope there is for other addicts. People can and do change!
