Obviously not the Department of corrections or the state.
Seems to me the drug dealers and users do.
No druggies no clients no drugs no druggies

There is little regulation in this industry and it is underpinned with the so
called Program of Recovery and the 12 steps and most places are staffed by ex-drinkers/drug users.

I found a good video about treament showing how it can do more harm than good.

There are a lot of fake 'recovery' programs. Narconon run by scientologists is probably the most blatant example. Programs run by religious groups like Teen Challenge are notorious for abusing clients. The state neews to make sure that patients are receiving science based care and not cult mumbo jombo!

You know what I find interesting, that a harmless plant "pot" is not legal even though it is useful not only for medical but material also and it's free as you could grow your own but that's why it's not legal the government wants people to consume the legal dope pills what have you so not only do they get paid so does the pharmicutical companys and the FDA.
How are these recovery houses allowed to give out Narcotics like adderall, clonopine, sericue to name a few??? To people who are trying to recover from drug abuse?
If your going to shove uppers, downers and inside outers to them all at the same time yet a simple harmless plant is prohibited.
Can't people see the truth???
The government wouldn't get money for there legal manufactured dope that they shove down peoples throats and people wouldn't be hooked on narcotics and dependent on these alleged recovery centers..........
All about the money they could care less about the American person they only care about there pockets and keeping half of the shamory of there buisness running...
You cure junkies they are out of a job. Keep them hooked and they will forever have a client that your tax dollars support.
How that for disgusting and sick?

I think there are a variety of programs and organizations set up to run these facilities. It would be hard to say exactly who runs these places, but at least we know that they want to provide help. I have seen so many people go through addiction recovery programs run by many different organizations. Overwhelmingly I have noticed that people who take it seriously get the help they need and can recover from these addictions.

My brother has been going through a recovery program for a couple weeks now. From what I've heard it's been going really well for him, so I'm glad about that. How long do these recovery programs usually last though? I'm really starting to miss seeing my brother around the house.
