Question by I’m gonna start another riot: Can somebody explain why Mexico would even have drug rehab centers since Mexico says its only a US problem?

I had a very bad cold so that I had the opportunity to watch A&E’s Intevention. Over 80% if not 90% of the addicts return to their addiction after they left rehab.

I’m beginning to wonder if rehab only works if the addicts admits themselves, not forced into going…

Recovery Homes for Woman with Children
One of the biggest challenges facing alcoholic and drug addicted women is what to do with their children when they want help. Many recovery homes require a stay of three to nine months and no accommodations for children. These women often do not have family willing to care for the children during this time. The fathers may have their own substance abuse problems or a history of physical abuse. Women are reluctant to ask for help from social service in fear of never getting their children back. So they continue in their addictions .
There are a handful of these homes and they do much more than treat alcoholism and drug addiction.

Many of these children have behavioral problems due to the mother’s substance abuse and receive their own counseling.
