Several weeks ago, a piece came out about the addiction treatment industry on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. The piece is really funny in parts, if you can have a laugh at the ridiculous-ness of it, and at the same time, it sheds light on the less appealing side of big business and how money and greed have changed the landscape of treatment.
On this episode, Wattsy and I sit down to have a chat about the addiction treatment industry from our point of view. We talk about recent news stories, fluff pieces, and the seriousness of getting the right care.
