Wow. These two young women are such shining examples as role models for girls in this country. Apparently they don’t get it, and their need for self-destruction is greater than their need for survival. With Lindsay’s latest blunder of failing a drug test right after being released early from treatment, and Paris’ guilty plea for cocaine possession in Las Vegas, it makes me wonder if they will ever get their acts together.
People (and most doctors, too) often underestimate the need for a long-term drug rehab that works, and offer too many chances to fail with light punishments, short-term inpatient rehabs or even outpatient treatments. The most effective approach, according to The New Face of Recovery, is a long-term, drug-free non-disease-based treatment that promotes personal responsibility and doesn’t give more drugs to addicts.
