Actor Chris Klein was recently arrested for a DUI charge, and upon his release he entered himself into an alcohol and drug addcition center for rehabilitation. His representative was quoted as saying, “After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years.” This was his second arrest.
While it may seem common for celebrities to immediately enter addiction treatment centers following an arrest or some other sort of public humiliation, it is not limited to them. In many cases it is the form of intervention needed to get someone to seek help for their substance abuse problems.
One of the main reasons why we see repeate offenders is due to the length and methods of treatment. For example, a 90-day drug rehab program is going to be more effective than a 30-day facility, and one that is responsibility-based instead of disease-based greatly increases the chances for permanent recovery.
