Why treatment centers are responsible for Phillip Seymour Hoffman's death...

And why most detox and rehabs will not speak about what we can learn from it...

#phillipseymourhoffman dead brings up the fact that for talent to go to work after #detox is as much the responsibility o f#treatmentcenters as it is for #studios and #talentmanagement  to halt them than it is for the person suffering from #addiction#treatmentcenters are weak, rarely involve families for more than a day or a week at most, and have a hard time telling you the truth: we prefer dealing with your insurance and your check than telling you that 30 days is not enough and that its easier to 'treat' you than to tell your loved ones and business circles how just as sick they are as you. The wrong people are leading this 'industry'. You can call it industry the day you have recovery rates worth publishing or speaking about. The majority of line staff has a year or two sober, are as unstable as the patients they are 'caring for'. Its a great business model when your staff is mostly made up of counselors (they are cheap), the majority suffering from relapses from the transference and countertransference they can't even see into. Counselors are case managers, not therapists. But lets not think about that, lets look at margins and figure that paying minimum wage to people that cant really offer more vale make for a great business model (with the most depressed culture and atmospheres). Shure, less than ten percent make it. Keep telling yourself that. Keep believing that it's a hit or miss. It's more a hit or miss industry, no feedback from those treated, no business principles for selecting or cutting staff, making sure you foment leading outcomes. But the owner is playing golf, he doesn't need to hear about the drama at the center. BTW, Insurance companies are catching up. Some treatment centers do do their work and others simply are sad excuses for people in recovery who shine their sobriety chips around as an education certificate. Results will start showing who cares and who doesn't. Its time for change. Less than ten percent is an outcome that should be a reflection of bad treatment processes. #drugs  are getting stronger and cheaper. Oh, I forgot talking about your future clientele...youth. Yes, they see through your sleeves. Your depressed staff cant inspire a young adult to recovery. Inspiration comes from inspired people, not from having a nice facility. Yes, Im angry, but this anger is changing the industry...by the way, Im not alone...#bythesearecovery
