Today is a new day, no need to use today.. to tell the truth I’m not even thinking about using drugs anymore…wait I know it hasn’t been that long ans this is a battle for the rest of my life ..but for the first time in years I just don’t have any motivation for drugs.. I do understand the urgency of friends and family wanting me in rehab.. Its like a miraculous thing in a lot of people’s minds … I’m sorry to say I’m not one .. I have researched rehabs and there curriculum, They have the worst success rate of any drug rehabilitation program.. How is this going to help anyone …. ok 1 out of 40 people never do drugs again after rehab…WOW thats worth the money ..lol That one out of forty probably didn’t belong there to begin with.. I’m just not sure the education you receive is worth the pay… There are library’s full of books of this subject…self help groups and etc.. Am I really going to be cured by these professionals .. ? How do you become a professional in this field …hmmm I think I’m a pro more than anyone I have spoken to… ohhhh sure a 27-year-old out of college knows why I am addicted to a drug..ummmm don’t thinks so …so far I have tried to tell people why I’m an addict, guess what …you can believe me or not I am not worried either way… I do know one thing I will not abuse any kind of drug again , whether rehab is a factor or not…and please believe me , If you think for any reason its an automatic cure .. maybe you need to research it yourself… I’m feeling awesome and looking forward to my appointment at 2pm …Thanks for reading my point of view …23reha.html?pagewanted=all Please check this link…
Heres an excerpt from an article I read…
At the beginning of every Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, someone reads out loud a plastic-laminated document that says, among other things, that this Twelve-Step program has rarely been known to fail, except for a few unfortunate people who are “constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves”:
RARELY HAVE we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are those who cannot or will not give themselves completely to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way.
A.A. Big Book, 3rd & 4th Editions, William G. Wilson, page 58.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Even the most ardent true believers who will be honest about it recognize that A.A. and N.A. have at least 90% failure rates. And the real numbers are more like 95% or 98% or 100% failure rates. It depends on who is doing the counting, how they are counting, and what they are counting or measuring.
A 5% success rate is nothing more than the rate of spontaneous remission in alcoholics and drug addicts. That is, out of any given group of alcoholics or drug addicts, approximately 5% per year will just wise up, and quit killing themselves.6 They just get sick and tired of being sick and tired, and of watching their friends die. (And something between 1% and 3% of their friends do die annually, so that is a big incentive.) They often quit with little or no official treatment or help. Some actually detox themselves on their own couches, or in their own beds, or locked in their own closets. Often, they don’t go to a lot of meetings. They just quit, all on their own, or with the help of a couple of good friends who keep them locked up for a few days while they go through withdrawal. A.A. and N.A. true believers insist that addicts can’t successfully quit that way, but they do, every day.
