The Holistic Sanctuary Recognizes International Overdose Awareness Day by Citing CIR Report About Potential Fraud at Conventional Drug Rehab Centers
Date:9/1/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 01, 2013

The Holistic Sanctuary reminds the public, in the commemorations following the 13th Annual International Overdose Awareness Day, that we must continue to educate citizens about the possible dangers of conventional drug rehab centers and the alleged wrongdoing of these institutions, as documented by the Center For Investigative Reporting (CIR), which published its findings on July 29, 2013.* The correspondence between these two events – the attempt to help and heal people suffering from addiction and the effort to expose the so-called “rehab racket,” respectively – reveals the urgency, in the expert analysis of The Holistic Sanctuary, of avoiding the relapse-to-rehab spiral of defeat.

In the Rehab By The Numbers report (from July 29, 2013), CIR reveals that $185.8 million represents the amount of money spent on California’s drug rehab counseling programs. $94 million of that money, according to CIR, was spent on Southern California rehab clinics that have shown signs of deception or questionable billing.** These numbers serve as an ominous bookend to International Overdose Awareness Day because of statements from TaMara Shearer, a former addict who worked as a supervisor at drug rehab clinic in Riverside and Pomona, California.

The same CIR study (from July 29, 2013) goes on to say: “Under pressure to diagnose teenagers with fake addictions, counselors at the clinics reverted to racial stereotypes, according to Shearer. They labeled white teens as alcohol drinkers and black or Latino teens as marijuana smokers.”***
