From Rehab to a Body Bag | Dying for Treatment: VICE Reports (Full Length)

Spread the love

In the United States, more people between the ages of 25 and 64 die of complications from drugs than car crashes. According to a 2009 study published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 23.5 million people in this country over the age of 12 need treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, and only 2.6 million of these afflicted individuals actually receive it. In response, drug and alcohol rehab has blossomed in the past three decades into a billion industry with nearly 15,000 facilities across the country. Although non-hospital residential treatment serves only about 10 percent of those in recovery in the US, the exorbitant cost of such care–as high as ,000 a month–has made it extremely lucrative. And thanks to popular TV shows like Celebrity Rehab, which have installed the luxurious rehabilitation center in the popular consciousness, the national enrollment figures keep growing.

VICE editor Wilbert L. Cooper traveled to Southern California, the region with the highest concentration of these high-end rehab clinics, to explore the peculiar and troubling side of the for-profit addiction treatment industry.

    Funny. I got Sober because I did it in a practical way. Not a place so awesome that when i come home I realize ugh back to life and the cycle starts again. I like it when I am in a setting that helps me at home NOT in a stress free environment

    I worked in two rehab facilities. Some of the staff treated clients like prisoners. Who is gonna believe you if you leave treatment and blame it on abusive staff? They kinda got ya… And it can be a money grab. Not saying all rehabs are but in some instances they certainly take advantage of a vulnerable group whose families are desperate for their "help." People heal from addictions because they are motivated to change and are ready to face their pain in a new way. The answer is not necessarily rehab… I would say more often than not it isn't. Rehab can be a toxic place to be and is not a cure all. No one monitors how they treat the clients, and it is a serious problem.

    He sounds like hes lying

    Richie Rich is high as hell. $70K isn’t doing anything but making parents think they are doing something for their kids. I get it but they aren’t getting better. He didn’t even know where his patients were. Yikes

  13. Soli JSS

    Im an addict for around 15 years mainly heroin. I went to rehab 5 times. No works. Now im clean for 3 years. I just move to another little town far away from my home town and live my life…. You guys can do it too… be strong

  14. Missy Clark

    That Cliffside Malibu guy is a total salesman! That's not what recovery is about

  15. Rosanna Bananna

    I dont think 30 days is enough for a recovering addict. 90 days at the least.

  16. Carl Mohr

    $73k / month?!?!? If I had that to spend rehab would be the furthest thing from my mind! I'd have rails drawn from the ki dumped on the table!

    faith based God centered free facilities are located all over the country. I'm a recovering addict myself, 4 years clean, took me a prison sentence and state funded rehabilitation program. but currently work with faith based program and I'm a true believer that God is the only answer to cure addiction and you must surrender to God to be healed but it is possible.  starla corpus Christi texas

    This doctor said it straight: if you have insurance and money you're getting cared.

  19. Annie M.

    Equine therapy… What? Just pay to go to a ranch and see horses. Much cheaper.what about this guy saying Michael Jackson got treatment, like it's a proof of success? Michael Jackson died from addiction.

  20. Annie M.

    73000$/month? And he said he took 3 years!? Such a joke and a scam.
