To Lavendalilly and Ya ya,
You both are right on the money. LL because it is so true we need an inpatient rehab here. With the size of this city, it's insane we don't have one. THe mental health services here suck as well, it took months to find help for my family member who was struggling with bipolar and there are no ongoing psychiatrists available, only for med refills and not counselling.. As for addiction, Ya ya, you are right when you say if a person wants help, they have to seek it out themselves or it won't work. No one can force someone to do what they don't want to do, bcause it won't last. This city hall needs to pull it's head out of it's a.. and pony up. Maybe more people WOULD seek help if they didn't have to leave town.
