You see it again and again in the news -- some ordinary person, celebrity, or person in between is caught with drugs, a DUI, or similar drug offense, and in half or more of all cases, they're sent to a "drug treatment center." My question is.. do they help? How many people come out of those centers with a new attitude on life along the lines of: "Wow. I now see another, more positive perspective of my life." I've known people in the past who have been 'confined' to these treatment centers and who come back unchanged, like they didn't learn a thing or experience anything new. I'm wondering if there are better program with better results, or if running such "recovery" centers is a waste of money. Thoughts?
