Anne M. Fletcher is a trusted New York Times bestselling health and medical writer who visited fifteen addiction treatment centers—from outpatient programs for the indigent to famous celebrity rehabs; from the sites of renowned twelve-step centers to several unconventional programs—to find out what really happens. What she reveals ranges from inspirational to irresponsible and, in some cases, potentially dangerous.As always with her books, Fletcher gets the inside story by turning to real people who "have been there," interviewing more than a hundred individuals whose compelling stories illustrate serious issues facing people in rehab and endemic in the rehab industry today.Fletcher exposes twelve supposed facts for the falsehoods they are, including "rehab is necessary for most people to recover from addictions"; "highly trained professionals provide most of the treatment in addiction programs"; and "drugs should not be used to treat a drug addict." Fletcher's most important finding is the alarming discrepancy between the treatments being employed at many rehab centers and the treatments recommended by leading experts and supported by scientific research. Inside Rehab also highlights what is working, spotlights state-of-the-art programs and practices, and offers advice and guidance for people seeking quality care and treatment for themselves or those they care about.Inside Rehab is the first book to give listeners a thoughtful, sensitive, and bracingly honest insider's view of the drug and alcohol rehab industry in America. For people seeking quality care for themselves or a loved one, Inside Rehab is essential listening, offering a wealth of accurate information and wise guidance.
