    My beautiful son died last July 5th. He struggled with addiction for years. Was in both expensive inpatient programs, IOP's, and finally when he lost everything was in a program that the state paid for for 30 days. While I will never believe that 30 days is long enough for an addict to get the real help they need he said he got more from that program then of of the others he had ever been in, the ones where we had to fly him across the country for yoga and massage, etc... He died a month after getting out of his last rehab program but was drug and alcohol free. His heart just gave out. Death certificate read natural causes; cardiomegly. It doesn't make me feel any better, my heart is still shattered, as is his 8 year old daughters

    Only thing I wish he would've gone in to is how it is Damn near impossible for someone with no insurance to get the help they need. I am watching someone close to me relapse again and again because the best she can get is a medical detox then be told she will be put on a waiting list that can take weeks or more before may be being accepted... At this point I fear for her life.

    drinking a fiver of Vodka as I watch this. Easiest way to drop alcoholism is to keep yourself pre-occupied. I can go months without drinking if I am too busy spending my time working and doing other stuff while being in a positive mood. The moment I go on vacation I am drinking more than a human should ever drink in a week. Screw rehab.

    As someone who researches and compiles peer-reviewed studies on the value of animal-assisted therapy, I have to say he is correct. I have seen no empirical evidence for equine-based treatment for addiction, or any animal species for that matter (dogs are the most common animal used in AAT). Animals have been used to help treat mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, and even that research is limited at best. While I do believe that it is a viable therapy for other mental illnesses, the published, peer-reviewed research is just not there for addiction treatment. While it could work for some addicts, it is by no means something that works for all people. Especially people who "don't even like (insert animal here)" Just my two cents as someone who studies AAT.

    Maybe what needs to happen is drug addiction needs to become a moral failing once again. There needs to somehow be a disincentive to do drugs. The rehab industry seems to be fostering the incentive. That's how they get their clients.

    Terrifying and true! I think the other glaring problem that needs to be addressed is how the 12 Step program has infiltrated every nook and cranny of detox and rehab facilities. 12 Step has a terrible success rate and yet it is where the majority of people are sent...by the courts, by therapists, family doctors and by well meaning family members. 12 Step/AA has been deemed a religious program by several courts and it is against a patient's constitutional rights to be mandated to a religious program for treatment. Most people do not have a clue that this is true. There are alternatives: SMART, HAMS, Moderation Management, Women For Sobriety, SOS, LifeRing, Rational Recovery. None of these programs are perfect. As John Oliver said, perhaps the best way to get help is to find a certified expert in the field. It is a life and death proposition.

    What a surprise. Feeding off of insurance of patients and not really caring about the results. They need to make an organization of board certified addiction doctors and psychiatrists that oversee all rehab centers and grades them based on patient turn around. Haven't had a single patient come clean in 3 months? Automatic investigation. Piss poor patient documention/ fraud? Automatic investigation and or possible shutdown procedures. If a patient leaves and relapses a month later thats one thing but you should see some kind of results if your rehab center performs well. Hold these places accountable cause otherwise they'll just keep not giving a shit and collect that insurance money.

    Totally agree that these places he highlighted are complete scams. My only issue with this piece is that they omitted actual legitimate medical rehab centers that genuinely help people. They do exist, my brother is proof. A year and one month sober, spent 90 days in rehab, 6 months in sober living, now living on his own and counseling other addicts like him at another rehab. There are legitimate facilities, you just won’t see them advertised on tv. Do your research and don’t get scammed

    This may be the most depressing episode of this show I've ever seen. It's really hard to keep laughing when people are dying. He does an amazing job of making something funny that would otherwise be to informative and boring for most people to take an interest. It's strange, but I think the laughter may not mask the pain of the situation, but actually drive it home.

    Rehab centers are just insurance milking machines that use you until you either leave/relapse and return, or die, then you’re replaced. It’s like the old coal mine saying “kill a man and he is left to lay, kill a mule and you’re fired” these people should be executed. Also juvenile detention centers are a HUGE scam, they get massive amounts of state revenue and intentionally push back and delay court dates so that they can make more money. People talk about racism and privilege, there are only two types of people in this world, crooks with money and struggling people without money.

    I think that urine test scam has gone beyond just drug addicts now. My mother is in Florida and I just found out that her new doctor (who she just dropped) tried to force her into taking a drug test. She is not a drug addict and only takes a legal prescription from her rheumatologist. After she refused to take it, the doctor started asking her psych eval questions and tried to schedule her to see a psychiatrist. I think it's pretty telling that he was trying to force her into taking weekly drug tests to scam the insurance out of money.

    While there are definitely flaws I wish it would have discussed companies/facilities that are set up like mine. We have a residential/rehab facility that is a 90 day program then outpatient services (lower level care) to help clients continue to work on maintaining long term sobriety. And I work for a company who takes state insurance. I think this is a great way to help people. Agreeing with needing more than the residential aspect alone.

    John Oliver is doing a great public service with these informative, entertaining, and above all, critical looks at things that are happening. This is basically what the skeptical community is about, and what scientific skeptics around the world have been doing for a long time. John Oliver just has a far bigger platform to do it from than pretty much anybody else. And he does it so well too.
    There are many brilliant skeptics doing essentially investigative journalism into many scams, and trying to educate people, to immunize them against scammers, but too often they play to too small crowds, mostly comprised of people who already have a good critical outlook, and at least a decent knowledge base in the basics of critical thinking. John Oliver gets the message out to a lot of people who would likely never find the skeptical communities, or be interested enough to look into what they are about.

    The hard part about regulating rehab centers is there is no proven standard treatment that is cures addiction. Peting a horse might actually help one person and not another. Everyone is different and reacts differently to treatments. As long as the center doesnt lie about there statistics and the customer is fully aware of what is in the tratment program and willing to pay for it. He should be free to do so. If they are lying about their statistics that is fraud and they can and should be prosecuted/sued out of existance for that with no new laws needed
    The real crooks are the goverment, insurance and pharmaceutical companies cartelizing the healthcare industries not rehab centers

    I am a successful long term Suboxone user who has been clean for many years. Before Suboxone (Buprenorphine) I nearly overdosed three times. One time in particular I was clinically dead for two minutes. Rehab didn't work. The 12 steps didn't work. Nothing was more powerful than the physical dependency and the brain's drive to get opiates. I watched friend after friend die following a similar path. I was financially bankrupt and nearly lost my child forever. Medication assisted treatment saved my life and gave it back to me. Thank you for this.

    Soulvigilante 14 days ago

    Here's the problem with "evidence-based practices": they don't really exist. The bell curve for any demonstrably effective approach to treat addiction is laughably narrow (specifically, 5%). For every addict who successfully establishes and maintains recovery through, say, The 12 Steps, easily 19 fail to see the same benefit. For every legitimate success case utilizing medication-assisted therapy, at least 19 either end up relapsing within a month or end up outright abusing it. Roughly 1 in 20 addicts achieve and maintain abstinence with no intervention. CBT models of "evidence-based practice" such as those implemented in prison systems have an even lower success rate because they are fucking jokes.
    The "normies" out there who assume the "scientific method" is the missing piece of the puzzle fail to acknowledge one critical factor: addicts are the pinnacle of terminal uniqueness. No one-size-fits-all approach is going to work for any sizeable chunk of the addict population.
    Recovery is a lot simpler than we make it out to be. One has to reach a point where, in one's own mind, the cost outweighs the benefit. Keywords: in one's own mind. Invariably, addiction is driven by some type of deeper psychological or physical suffering, often at the subconscious level. Whether it's trauma, unresolved sense of self, resentment, a chemical imbalance or physical pain, so long as it remains inadequately addressed, self-medicating will always trump the toll it takes on the addict. Once one has identified and begun to address these underlying drivers, the rest comes down primarily to reframing expectation. In short, being ok with ok now and then.
    So, what can rehab offer? A supportive environment to identify these costs and benefits with a clearer mind (essential!), opportunities to learn coping strategies the DO WORK if one is willing to allow them to (again: reframing expectation) and the camaraderie that comes from hearing from others' experiences that you are not alone and not as sick as you thought. People who criticize rehab tend to be those who seem to expect the program to do the work for you. Whether you do outpatient through the local human service center or drop six figures at a glorified day spa, you're only going to get out of it what you put into it.

    Re-habs of any type are only useful IF accompanied by a treatment plan.
    IF you or someone you know is currently struggling with any opioid addiction, I strongly encourage you to look up doctors that can prescribe the medication Suboxone.
    Getting on a treatment plan such as that, along with a rehab for time away, equals a much higher chance of success.
    For those that claim you are only substituting one drug for another, take it from me, it works. And along with my own, medication like Suboxone has saved countless lives. (DO NOT SEEK METHADONE, IT IS NOT THE SAME)

    Spot on. When my daughter became addicted, we sent her to multiple rehabs and spent a lot of money. All the rehab centers insisted that they were "scientifically based."
    This was in the Midwest. She would always relapse. She told us that every facility she went to would give her a Bible and tell her that Jesus would cure her (she was an atheist). At first, we thought she was just making excuses....then we heard the same thing from many other former "patients" of the same facilities.
    My daughter is dead.
    I'm glad that John Oliver has brought this to attention. It's very, very serious. People are making MONEY off of suffering...and people are dying as a result.
