Who Needs Rehab?

I felt the information that Ms. Fletcher had to share was very misleading and this report on recovery programs is harmful to both people who suffer from addiction and those who work in the field attempting to help them.
While her suggestion of more "licensed clinicians" spending more than one hour per week for the addict certainly would help, the cost of this would be prohibitive. As it stands, billions of dollars go towards prisons that offer no rehabilitation for addiction and recovery homes struggle along while institutions and government employees absorb the brunt of funding offered to treat addiction.
As it stands, Ms. Fletcher, with a Master's degree in nutrition, doesn't seem to have the credentials nor the experience to be making the claims that she is. Having her make these claims on programming as reliable as KPBS does a disservice to your listeners and your reputation. I hope wiser choices are made in the future.
