  • The addiction treatment industry is dangerously unregulated. John Oliver explains why many rehab programs should incorporate more evidence-based care and carefully reconsider their doctor-to-horse ratio.

    13.yrs Sober. 14 times it took me to finally accept I was a Alcoholic & that I would have to take care Of My Mental Health. No one wants to admit they are Powerless over something , let alone be Crazy. When I was drinking , all I wanted to do was Die. Many times, I would end up in ER. having my stomach pumped. In Australia Rehabilitation is carried out & overlooked by Public Or Private Systems. All are Proper Psychiatriatric Hospitals. No Insurance Company can refuse your claim & you can use it as many times as you require. All have to be Fully Qualified Psychiatrists , Psychotherapists , GP Doctors , Registered Nurses assisted by Nurses . All Facilities have to be Accredited. (Professional requirements of The Australian Federal Healthcare System NHS ).

    Got sober 13 years ago, in a foreign country where I did speak the common language. But a support meeting (in English) was there, full of my fellows, and they showed me a way to stay sober. The cost was free, except for the effort I had to apply. Doesn’t work for everyone, but I wouldn’t do it any other way.

    Sorry but ANY kind of medical profession has that dangerous cycle where it is more profitable when people stay sick!
    To be honest, while I'm not denying the point being made, I think we generally need more horse stroking and less Pharma.

    Lol rehab is for people addicted to "drugs or alcohol..come on John Oliver your smarter than that ;) We really need to stop saying drugs and alcohol as separate it sounds absolutely stupid whenever i hear it.

    And I’m sorry ppl have died from drugs. But what would help is educational information on it and how to do a small about until ur tolerance builds if that happens and how to handle it. Oh and the government imagine the taxes!!!! Mmmmmmm right

  • itsawrapent

    I love how they took back the amount they gave patients, then the patients had to find a replacement... so logically heroine... Then these ppl get arrested for having heroine. Because the pills they need are $30-$40 a pop and WHAT THE FUCK CAN AFFORD THAT!!! Legalize drugs now so that’ll be cheaper and cleaner cuz the government is hold on and distributing it... it’s a common sense and if u have a problem with this,look up Alcohol.... The you tell me what’s worse

    The thing about rehab is you have to have insurance or money. If you’re poor no rehab. I was on a bender and call rehab for help.They ask me did have insurance. I didn’t,so they said I had to wait 2 weeks. I needed help and not in 2weeks. It’s not receiving help it’s about money point blank .

    Most rehabs based on AA, NA, any A. They are cults. One's gets brainwashed into having "a disease for life". It's just sad.

  • Skorpius

    Getting off drugs is very difficult. Drug use negatively affects brain chemistry to the point where you usually feel like you want to die for a few days afterwards. For very long term users, their brain chemistry may never recover. The problem with "non addictive" medicines that help correct this imbalance are not much better. You can become physically dependent on literally any drug (see rebound effect, tolerance).
    Antidepressents will mess your brain up as much as some illegal drugs. The only way to effectively overcome drug addiction is with a lot of therapy.
    The biggest problem with addiction science is that there is this misconception that addiction is a disease. Addiction is merely a symptom of a wider problem and taking more drugs (psych meds) is not a long term solution.
    The guy talking about horses may be hilarious but he also has serious anger issues. In fact, he's scary because horses are awesome. If you cannot connect with a horse, a dog or a dolphin, you also will not connect with people. That's where you get mass shootings from!

    THANK U, MR. JOHN OLIVER, for this THOUGHTFUL & INCREDIBLY WELL-RESEARCHED LOOK AT US TREATMENT CENTERS, & REHAB PROGRAMS. YOU DIDN"T EVEN TOUCH ON THE ASPECT, THOUGH, OF HOW DRUG CHARGES & CONVICTIONS REALLY DESTROY PEOPLE'S LIVES, TOO. PART OF JOE BIDEN'S PUSH FOR 'THREE STRIKES' MEANS A LOT OF ADDICTS ARE THROWN INTO JAIL, INSTEAD OF GETTING ANY MEANINGFUL TREATMENT.
    WHEN I'M GOVERNOR OF ARIZONA, AFTER I FREE, PARDON & EXPUNGE THE RECORDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, I WILL MAKE DAMN SURE WE SET UP A WORLD-CLASS SYSTEM OF NON-PROFIT ADDICTION & RECOVERY CENTERS. NO MORE DRUG BUSTS UNDER 1 OZ LIKE IN OTHER STATES ! ! DRUG POSSESSION CHARGES WILL BE COMMUTED TO MANDATORY REHAB.
    ENDORSE ME? :)

    Let me tell you, insurance or personal payment of 35k and u stand in a circle tossing a ball to eachother, petting horses, eating highschool level food, & learing how to take deep breathes.. watch the fuck out. Watch out for Dr. Dealer giving you 90 subs for 200$/month. And forget liquid handcuffa methadone will lock you in for years and u wont know how to get out, the only way being MUCH harder than if you never switched to it, promise you.

  • Sue Maleski

    Most of they places are total money grabs with careless ignorant people who're total cunts. And some operators straight up lie to get you to go to the places theyre supposed to send you. If youre calling for help you need to really research the place or ur taking a 15k-40k gamble.

    problem is, if they start having real, evidence-based criterias for being a rehab, all the bullshit christian praying ones will be out. So of course they're not going to set any criterias.

    Its a shame how the mind works. How once you cross a certain line, you can never go back. If you're a full blown alcoholic, you cant go back to having a glass of wine at christmas because you'll spiral right back down. Even if youve been on the wagon for years, your brain remembers it.

    Fun fact: The Addiction Network guy actually has a coke problem. I was in rehab with someone who knew him, and used to do blow with him.

  • Creepypasta & Squirrels

    I started taking Suboxone ten years ago under the care of a doctor who was a recovering addict himself. He sadly passed away but knew he was dying and made sure all his patients had a new facility to go to so no one was left searching for a new doctor. I have been going to an outpatient clinic called Ideal Option now for three years and have relapsed a few times but they have always worked with me to help get me back on track. I get my Suboxone through them and my state insurance covers everything from the visit to the urine drug screens to the cost of the medication itself as well as my therapy sessions.

    If you were to ask any addict who went through a GOOD rehabilitation program they'd be able to tell you the one hard fact; there's no such thing as a cure. There's recovery, ongoing and lifelong recovery. If a person were cured then then could conceivably use drugs/alcohol again in a recreational manner and not at all risk recurring addiction. That's very obviously NOT the case at all.

    Personally,rehab didn’t work for me. What DID And is,,is methadone.yes/. Switching 1 drug for another.. but it has kept me alive and a productive member of society again.
    GOD how I wish I told my doctor to piss off when I started to get prescribed such strong pain meds.

    I've been to rehab 8 times, 7 of which were in the Florida shuffle (I'm from Broward, the opiate capital of the world) and the last time was in Colorado at Parker Valley Hope, and now I have 6 years clean and sober. If you want a GOOD rehab, STOP going down to South Florida. Valley Hope, a smaller midwestern 12 step AA/NA/CA rehab program, is the best option. Don't go to Florida, don't go to Cali. They ONLY want you dead. When you die, and I know this because I am friends with people who run rehabs and sober homes, alot of centers in Cali and Florida will LITERALLY say "dam i guess we wont get another 30 out of them" and they throw your chart in the trash. It's an evil system at it's core. SOUTH FLORIDA IS NOT WHERE YOU RECOVER, IT'S WHERE YOU DIE.

    Sober 6 years got sober with a bunch of gang bangers and ex drug dealers in a small up and coming rehab 3 things I’ve kept in mind that have run true for me time and again
    1.) subs ain’t sober
    2.) God of any kind is the solution
    3.) clean house, grow the fuck up, and clear up ur past
    My experience has shown me the only successful treatment for addiction is finding a higher power, seeking your god, complete absintence, taking responsibility for past actions and acceptance of the shit in life, continual progress in enriching ones spiritual understanding.... fuck your feelings, fuck therapy, fuck subs ... seek god, clean house, be of service
