  1. Hi Carol, glad to see you here in this format. I so appreciate your courage to speak up and “ out” these shady characters and “treatment” facilities.

  2. I can confirm that is the truth about Dru Hicks! Unfortunately, he is the sperm donor to my youngest daughter! I’ve always said he was a narcissistic psychopath! He has 8 kids and only talks about 2. He is also NOT a single father, he has a fiance since 2010ish named Erin (Payton’s mom) whom he lives with! He uses her for money as well.

  3. These people who run these programs need to be exploited.I was begging to get help and didn’t know how and thought I was lucky when I met a man who represented a treatment program and told me he could get me into this new amazing program for women but first I needed to come to his home and talk about it.I was so mentally tired so without a question I did go to his home.He offered me moonshine and then made sexual advances towards me and reminded me of how he had connections to get in me into a program and pulled out a bottle of something called rush and told me if I sniff it I would get more comfortable and we could get it over with so I did.I was already so broken I would do anything just to find a way to stop using drugs and he kept his promise and reminded me to never let anyone know what we did and how he was only doing me a favor so I went too the recovery program that was long term which hasn’t been talked about but I thought that no one would know I was there not even my ex who was a dope cook until they published a news paper article I would appear on the front of and I was to either tell them what a wonderful program or I had to leave well I was scared and I wanted to get and stay clean and they told me “if I left I would relapse” so I did the news paper story and while suffering with mental illness and begging to go to the hospital they told me I had to leave in the middle of night.At first they told me I was using until they drug screened me and couldn’t use that.I begged them to give me my phone and my belongings and was denied so I was on the streets in the middle of the night untreated for my mental illness.I wasn’t helping “fund” there program either because there funding came in thru the jails and to them I was eating into there profit.It took me going to countless greedy “programs” to realize I needed therapy and put on medication and today I am a productive member of society.These programs need shut down.If there is anything I can do to help just let me know

    1. Thank you very much for your comment, Survivor. I am saddened to hear of your experiences in this scourge of dirty treatment centers. Bravo on finding your way to where you are today!
      Be a voice every opportunity you have. Education and awareness can and does make a difference. Every state needs new legislation to fight these monsters.
      All the best to you.
