The last article I wrote had me wondering, is one drug treatment center better than another? I started by looking online, using search engines. Unfortunately, most of the results were for individual facilities and although they information was helpful, it was not unbiased.
I did gather that most people believe a 30-day program is not going to do the trick for most people. I can see why Jessica Sierra has been asked to complete a one-year program. I agree that this seems more conducive to a life change, a behavior change, and not just an attitude change.
The question still remains: did Sierra really need to fly out to California to participate in a high priced rehab out there when Florida is host to thousands of accredited drug treatment centers? I suppose she wanted to continue therapy with a celebrity doctor, Drew Pinsky. Who can blame her? If she keeps her story in the tabloids, she is more likely to perhaps have some semblance of a career when she gets out of rehab – though I cannot fathom what sort of career she could have left at this point.
What works for one person may not work for another. I suppose the best thing to do is to work with a bevy of specialists to determine the path that best suits any individual. I sure hope Sierra is headed down the right path. I am really rather tired of seeing her name in the Tampa headlines.
