I myself an addict have done countless detoxes and 6 residential rehabs. Without sounding like a snob I've always payed privately and stayed at the priory or similar, I now believe that is why it took me 6 rebabs as it was like a hotel. My last rehab was awful up early doing jobs, cooking etc but It's done me a whole lot better as I was mixing with "real" addicts. Don't get me wrong but I've met a few people in private luxury rehabs who I think don't have a clue, anyway my last rehab I connected with a guy who used and was moved to a different rehab but same company. He's been using crack and gear and living with a girl I know from years ago. She's mad on the crack as her boyfriend deals. Was really proud of him this week as he moved out to stop the crack. He needs a detox. He's saying he can do it at his mates with loads of subbies and diazepam. He really wants it he said. My dilemma... then I'll shut up. Shall I guide him down the right path of seeing nhs or local services where you have to prove yourself before they will get you to a detox or shall I just pay? I don't mind paying but should he have to prove that he really wants it?? Also and detox recommendations would be great. He's done lots of jail so basic and harsh!
