How many of those people trying to get into Hooper are there for the 3rd or 4th time? I know the answer to this question and so do you.
The truth is that current treatment methods are only effective for a relativly small group of addicts. I don't have the percentages but the highest rates I've seen were presented by Hazelden, 56%, and the methodology used was so flawed as to render the results useless. In my opinion the report was biased by the need of the CEO to show high recovery rates.
Abstinence is, in my opinion, the best outcome and the outcome I would wish for all addicts.However, if it does not work for everyone, and it doesn't should we really leave no other option for the health and welfare of these people who suffer from addiction? That's not a very compasionate position. I would expect better from you.
I was excited when you entered the race for City Council. Several statements I read from you recently have caused me to no longer support your campaign.
