a rehab, have reached rock bottom so it's not fair to insinuate that they
contribute to the person's sad demise....
Actually, rock bottom = not breathing anymore. Therefore, NOBODY has
reached rock bottom when they enter a 12 step love-athon rehab. Many times they
arrive because they have been "intervened" or threatened with divorce, the loss
of their children in their lives or by a caring EAP program at work. When people
are "forced" into rehab, the consequences can indeed be quite dire. It's not
hard to envision some folks coming out of that kind of coercive situation with
an "I'll show you attitude". Think Amy Winehouse, Lindsay, etc....
12 Step rehabs and even worse, AA, should
be the last resort...Actually, they should never even be considered.
