  • The theme of John’s many videos on problematic industries seems to be the shocking lack of oversight, public or private. I feel like he criticizes Republicans mostly on the grounds of opposing oversight while passing outmoded morality laws, which is certainly justified reasons. There needs to be more oversight in many key industries.

He moved there to help with his drug addiction but it became worse, starting doing crack , stealing from stores, he even got thrown out of a car at one point by someone else on drugs. He was never actually able to get treatment and just ended up dying in his 50s.

  • My niece has been in and out of Rehab centers for years including halfway houses. They do nothing for them. They see a counselor once a week. They have a group therapy once a week and that's it. They sit around and play board games. They don't teach them coping skills or stress management. They don't have exercise classes or teach crafting like knitting, painting, etc. They don't teach life skills, like how to budget money and how to balance a check book. People like my niece have been high for so long, they literally have no idea how to be a normal average person with a job and responsibilities. This would be a great time to teach them these skills but instead, they sit there until they decide to get up and leave because it's pointless. I don't think my niece has ever stayed in a program til the end once in ten years.

  • I almost broke into tears through this because of my experience with addiction and rehab. I'm not addicted, my mom is a raging alcoholic and has been for years. She spent much most of my teenage years telling me that I would never have a partner or a marriage or a family, and I'd die alone and a virgin. She started drinking when I told her that I was transitioning to make my body more in line with my gender. It's just been an absolute whirlwind of emotions dealing with someone who is so far in the deep end. She told me terrible things that no child should ever hear, let alone from their parents, about very sensitive subjects, most of the time while drunk. When she was admitted into RCA (Recovery Centers of America), the cost was roughly $30,000 for a month of treatment. Insurance would cover detox week, no questions asked. The problem was twisting their arm to cover the full month, because they needed to be convinced that she was in critical condition and needed the treatment. For that much effort, I was fortunate enough to see where that money was going towards. They had a very nice, up to date gym to work out in (beats planet fitness any day of the week) and had just recently hired a world class yoga instructor. The scenery was very nice and clean... it was apparent that the money was going toward the experience of being at rehab. On the treatment side, it was incredibly faith based. They followed the 12 steps to the letter, and they required that the patient needed to accept god into their lives in order to be healed. They had a spiritual counselor, and bible readings. To be fair, they did also offer science based approaches to addiction and had people on proper medication and actual psychological therapists as part of their staff. None of this mattered without the faith based approach apparently. It gave me cult-like vibes and I could see it being patronizing towards non-christian patients struggling from the same disease of drug and alcohol addiction that my mom suffered from. When she was released from rehab, she was sober for a week, started drinking again, and was back to rehab for another month. Once she was released for that month, she hit it up with a rehab buddy and they partied pretty hard. I was at work when my phone was blowing up about a drug bust at the guys party in another state where my mom was, and needed a ride home. My grandma from my mom's side died 2 months after I was born. She was lying face down over the toilet, with vodka bottles all over the floor. My mom tried to find help, but now she is only worse off than she was before, and rehab did not do anything to change that. Addiction is serious, it is life and death to some people. Rehab doesn't always work, some people are just too far gone. It's heralded as a get out of jail free card for the addicted, but it only lasts a month. They're trying to tackle an issue that takes a lifetime to cope with. It is far too much money, for too little of what actually helps, and is dominated by religious undertones that do not actually help. At least know that, if you aren't in a situation where addiction is a real force, many people are.

  • As a recovering addict, the best place I got help was a mental hospital. Before ending up there the only thing doctors did was throw drugs at me that didn't help. They offer med management, but also set you up with social workers and outpatient care such as therapy, intensive therapy (a lot like inpatient care but with a lot more freedom) and several sources. Sadly in the US mental care is sorely overlooked and hard to get treatment for especially without insurance, and you have to keep up with it yourself, which is incredibly difficult, especially since it makes it seem like they don't care. I wish there were a better system.

  • Yea I can say as a drug addict that a drug like Buprenorphine has done wonders for me. Methadone on the other hand not so sure how well that works as my Brother has been in a clinic for Methadone where he gets it every day yet has still been using constantly while in the clinic for the last 3yrs. Me on the other hand being a Suboxone clinic which is the brand name for Buprenorphine that I have never used once while being in the clinic. Now it is basically just substituting one drug for another. Seeing how if I go more then a day without taking it I will have withdrawals. But it at least keeps me from doing dope every day and spending a shit ton of money on it every week. Never once have I felt like doing any sort of opioid while on Suboxone. It's also a drug that you can get yourself off of by slowly taking less and less MG of it. But my problem has always been the 3x that I did do that and got completely off of Suboxone that every time it happened I was back to using dope within 3months. So now I'm just at the point where I'm just gonna stay on Suboxone as I know I will stay 100% clean on it.

  • After my first stationary therapy (12 months) I received a call of a social worker who asked to visit me for inquiry. They did a study about how people who underwent longterm therapy were doing, to gauge the success rate. Now she visited me 22 months after therapy and I was 100% sober. 3 months later I relapsed, so in the said study I'm listed in the success group. Serious studies should be done 5 yrs after treatment, then they might actually reflect partly the reality.

It's excellently done.

So im on medicine that helps me. Been on it for two years and have held down my job without any issues. I get to save my money instead of blowing it on pills. I get to have a normal life again with my family. They instilled in my head that any type of medicine tthat i am on now, isnt ok and will furthur the prob. Couldnt be furthur from the truth. For such a complex issue, a one size fits all approach to helping ppl isnt realistic or helpful.
