I remember that the staff was overly generous, but in a way that wasn't helpful, giving my friend cigarettes when complained, or letting him make phone calls when he wasn't supposed to. I don't think it helped his recovery or taught him any boundaries. That was one of the reasons I didn't visit. I wanted him to know that he needed to focus on getting clean, not hanging out with me in Palm Springs. It didn't work for my friend that went there. He was surrounded by rich people pretending to get clean.

They always seemed to have celebrities in treatment. I think the non-celebrities were primarily there to scare the celebrities. They were also too diverse in age groups. However, it is available to all.
