Many Treatment Centres are for profit! The giant corporations that own them have peered into the future and acknowledged that there is a major shift occurring as religion becomes de-sanctified and science fills the void.
With religion out and science in, the nature and favor of sin is also changing and sin is becoming addictive behavior in favor of science.
The recovery industry is doing a hostile takeover of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and re-branding it as ‘addiction’ so they can have their very own disease.
Such as the IPO last fall of AAC Holdings, Inc. ‒ the first attempt at a publicly traded company exclusively for addiction treatment-- (the AAC stands for American Addiction Centers).
The quoted price range for a 30-day “treatment plan” (revolving largely around AA) was $15,000 to $26,000. The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is easily twice that amount and other, more exotic treatment facilities (often catering to celebrities in swank resort‒ style locations) can easily run into the low six‒figures.
Which reminds me:
I was talking with these two diseased people one time; one had bowel cancer and the other alcoholism.
Both were describing their relapses. The bowel cancer victim said: I have unrelenting abdominal cramping, intestinal pain and a bloody stool.
And the alcoholic said: When I relapse I get drunk, end up in bed with a woman I don’t even know and then I forget about it.
