Who’s Running Your Rehab?

By | Addiction, Uncategorized | No Comments

You open your doors at your new rehab center and within in a year you have become a millionaire. No degree or medical training required. Sounds too good to be true. Opening a rehab center is the new get rich quick business venture. But what is the catch?


How to become Licensed

According to the State of California Health and Human Services Agency Department Of Health Care Services you must have the following to obtain a legal license:

  • An alcoholism or drug abuse recovery, treatment, or detoxification facility must be defined as any facility, place or building which provides 24-hour, residential, non-medical services in a group setting to adults.
  • Must promote treatment and maintained recovery
That’s it!

Facilities may receive a certification from the state but that is completely voluntary. The advantage owners receive is a smooth processes while promoting to the potential clients within Health and Safety codes.

To be a treatment provider you must have a license given by the state your facility is located. You simply fill out an application and pay a fee. 120 days later your facility can issue medical treatment.

In their process of submitting their application, they must provide standard business and building information. Nowhere listed in the application is a background check. Previous investigation if they were once admitted in a treatment center is required. Investigation if they are listed as sex offenders is researched in the application process. Your son or daughter could be under 24 hr care of a sex offender or ex-con. During their most vulnerable time of their life they are unaware of who is taking care of them.

Who is monitoring them?

Praise God they must submit in their application the certifications their counselors have, but who is going to regulate it once their doors are open. An article produced by the OC Register “How some Southern California drug rehab centers exploit addictionsaid, there are only 16 inspectors to regulate the licensed treatment centers in California. In Southern California alone there is 1,117 licensed treatment centers, not to mention all the unlicensed ones who pay thousands of dollars to have the best advertising and SEO on Google. It costs pennies for a full treatment center to throw a few bucks into a paid Google analytic to promote their facility. Just because they are first on Google doesn’t mean they are a quality treatment center.

What is really happening at most treatment facilities?

Also mentioned in the OC Register article is the shocking fact that on average 1 person dies every 2 weeks in a licensed treatment center. DIES. Not relapse but dies.

Drones are now used to drop off drugs secretly to patience in rehab. Clients are stripped of all paraphernalia and drugs upon arrival, but when addiction calls they find any way to please their addiction.

The 12 step program has a 5% success rate which is the most commonly used to program in the treatment industry.


How are they making money?

Once an owner has hired the qualified signatures for billing documents anyone can write up reports for insurance companies to pay out. This means that no one technically has to have licensed personnel on staff at these facilities to bill for over $100,000 per client. On average a treatment center charges $30,000 per client per month. A facility with 10 beds is making around $300,000 per month. They are not required to spend any of that money on treating the client.

10 Gasping Experiences from People in Treatment

By | Addiction, Uncategorized | No Comments
Treatment is vulnerable process. Here are 10 statements from personal experiences through rehab.

1. You feel more accepted in your treatment center than you do in actual reality

2. Sober living homes are a place to find cooler friends to use with

3. My parents spent my college fund for me to go to treatment. After rehab I attended college and had to lie to my parents about sobriety. Now we are broke and I am using more than I did before I went to college.

4. The first treatment center I went to my counselor was only a high school graduate.

5. My door didn’t have a lock on it. When I was changing a male client walked into my room when I didn’t have anything on. This happened more than once.

6. I paid $70,000 for my first run at rehab. I relapsed and went to a rehab $30,000 cheaper that had gave me better life tools to sobriety.

7. One night I found my phone they taken from me and  I texted my dealer. A few hours later I was using in his car in front of my rehab.

8. I relapsed during treatment and was kicked out for a fews days homeless before they would let me back in for help.

9.  Once I had demonic visitations in my room at night, only to find out others in my center were using witchcraft. I thought I was having a trip but I knew I was sober.

10. Entering rehab I was an alcoholic. I left rehab a chain smoker.

Pee in this Cup: Corruption of Urine Testing

By | Addiction, Uncategorized | No Comments
The Cost

Did you know that one urine samples can cost up to $3000? One couple who sent their son to treatment received a bill of $300,000 for urine testing from a lab affiliated with the sober living home where their son was treated.

During the process of recovery, a staff member at the treatment center will require a drug test to determine whether or not the client is sober. It is commonly done upon arrival and departure. The client may receive an occasional test midway through their treatment to make sure their process to recovery is on track.

The treatment center then sends it off to the labs to be tested and results are given within 24 hours.

Then What?

Insert corrupt business owner.

The owner may then bill the insurance for whatever value he tries to justify the test is worth. On top of prostituting the urine, they can request to test the client more often than necessary to gain profit from the drug tests.

The Past

In the past three years, there has been hundreds of cases dealing with the fraudulent act involving drug testing. Corruption is spreading across the United States with major cases in Florida, Texas, California and New Jersey.

Millions of dollars are being paid out straight into the pockets of business owners who are capitalizing off the process of recovery. When will we have more verification of the processes of these businesses? How long will the corruption last?

The Future

Each of My Rehab Recovery’s qualified treatment centers source a lab company that value the patient and the medical testing. My Rehab Recovery is standing in the gap to stop this corruption.
