    Rehab Sucks...

    I have been a drug addict for the last 5 years. Most of my early twenties has been spent in a variety of treatment centers and hospitals. For the first time in years I am sober, and it has nothing to do with their "god" or AA or any other crap they're shoving down addicts...

    Going into a residential rehab program was
