This goes out to SE and Jason....Did you ever stop to think that this place is what you make of it? Instead of focussing on brain dead staff, or the goings on of male/female patients, shouldn\'t you be focussing on looking at yourself and finding out the reason you\'re there in the first place? Take responsibility and stop blaming and complaining. It doesn\'t do you any good and it keeps you in your head, where you shouldn\'t be. Were you able to drink/drug while you were there or were you in a safe place where they have a detox unit to help you through this rough period. Were you living on the street or did you thank God to have a bed to lay youreself in every night while you were there? Not to mention 3 meals a day instead of begging for food or eating out of a dumpster. I don\'t know about you, but because of places like Hope House, I was able to get clean and stay that way for 8 years and I\'m still going strong. So instead of complaining, just be grateful plain and simple.
