    Only if the person wants it to. If the person has no intention of truly changing and rehabilitating themselves, then no. It will not work.

    well, not all accurate,,
    regardless of intentions, forget about wants/ needs..

    it all comes down to a very simple and easy process.. follow the suggestions, the direction, and get clean and sober.. do not follow the program, then well , all bets off, regardless of intentions...

    "IF" a person sincerely wants it to. Working in a rehab center I saw both people who went back to their addiction and those who were successful in quitting their addiction.
    They have to want to do it for themselves first. Most of the ones that did quit for others did not have as great a chance as those who did it for themselves.

    But only if they really are willing to work at it and stay with it. It's tough for them and even more for those who love them.

    I agree, but getting that person to want to be in rehab is the first and often the hardest step......

    wanting to make a change is not enuff..

    only thing is to MAKE the change..
    follow the program, and get sober ,, 100% of the time.. each and every time..

    Of course. But the first step is to want it. Because if you don't WANT it, you wont COMMIT to it.

    first step ??
    sounds like you refer to the 11 step program , or some thing like that... :)

    It's 12 step. :)

    But no, that is not what I am referring to. People who are forced into rehab rarely ever see long term success. The want needs to be there. And this is for a good many things in life, whether it's weight loss, or paying off debt, or quitting addiction. You need to be the change you want to see.

  • Patric America... 2012/05/23 21:07:16

    or , is it your brother is an individual , and the program , made up of millions of people , is not about one individual case ?

    Rehab is the tool, not the mechanic. The individual has to use it in order for it to work.

    Well the question is, does the tool get the job done if the mechanic is putting effort behind it.
  • Patric America... 2012/05/23 21:06:02
    Patric
    the answer to your question, it works 100 % of the time, only problem, the mechanic some times does not do his / her job ...

    AA has a 100 % success rate of all those that follow, strictly follow the suggestions and recomendations.. 100 % , sorta strange any one would NOT follow their direction ....

    It does for many; though it isn't a walk in the park or quick fix. For some people it takes them 20 years before they finally kick the habit; like Robert Downy Jr. for example.

    getting the blood clean is the easy part, 3 , 5 , even if it is 7 days .. not a big deal...

    getting the mind clean ?? that is a life long process, and the cleansing never stops, each and every day is a new day to tackle ...

    hence, one day at a time.... keep coming back,

    need to qualify this YES answer..

    REHAB for drug / alcohol detox ???

    the actual rehab is just a means to achieve a goal..

    the rehab neither work nor fails to work,

    it is the person that works the rehab or refuses the rehab suggestions / recomendations.

    it is the person that succeds or fails the rehab, the rehab does not fail the person.

    so easy to attempt to find a scape goat to blame for a failure , ( see obomma to see a master at work at ducking the responsibility and shift blame onto others ) in rehab, you either work it or lose out .

    Yes, but only about 10% of the time. The success rate is much higher if you just quit on your own without any 12 step program.

    Sorry, but it's a fact. AA has an even lower success rate. 95% of people who go to AA seeking sobriety fail.
  • Patric Emma's ... 2012/05/23 20:40:57 (edited)
    Patric
    yes, you should be sorry, sorry for attempting to post opinions as a fact, and opinions that are wrong..

    one thing you do have almost correct.. " 95% of people fail " it is the person that fails , not AA , .. and that is a very important fact .. the person fails,, I still disagree with your revised %

    AA has not failed once ,, not one time ,, it has 100% success rate of the people that follow the program.. 100 % ... it is the individual that fails..

    question to you,, your first post you quote ( an incorrect quote to boot ) a % sucess rate, I challanged you on your post , you then changed ( also an incorrect quote ) your % success rate..

    how about open your eyes, open your ears, and shut up , you may learn how to become clean and sober..

    one day at a time ,,, it works...

    I feel sorry for you if you can't accept facts. Don't shoot the messanger... I'm not against AA! I just know more about how AA works than you do.
