I have been working on a sizzle reel to sell a show to a major network . We decided to do this after a few people came forward to me to shed light on the corruption in these Rehab /Sober Living places in Florida and in California. Local and National Newspapers are reporting on this corruption.
The FBI is on to them . Chris Bathum is in jail awaiting trial. Soverigh was raided but still open and operating. The FBI raided and shut down many places in Florida. The young people are dying in many of these phony 12 step based Rehabs and Sober Living.
First off they have NO OVERSITE, especially in California. If you look up who over sees them you will see they are under The Health Department. The Description says they are NON MEDICAL. SO… Why is our insurance paying for NON Medical 12 step ideology from 1935?
There are many more places. ABOVE IT ALL in Lake Arrowhead is under a close watch. ( I will add links later tonight )
I am speaking to you as a parent.
DO NOT SEND your children or loved ones to 12 step based places. Do not send them on to sober living after REHAB. LET THEM COME HOME TO YOU. YOU can help more then many of these places who are making Millions of dollars.

Please ask many questions. Do not believe what is on their website for these 12 step based places.
Most people can detox in 3-10 days. Most people get well on their own. Some need help. .
