  1. My parents and yours seem very much a like. Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s the legitimate medical community were just short of burning sage and playing drums to treat addiction. They had even less experience in treating children who were showing signs of addiction. The entire recovery industry was stumped due to lack of any real studies that focused on children.

    This lack of information was the perfect set up for places like Straight Inc. to take advantage of some very frightened parents who by then had “only” the disinformation the Nixon administration bombarded the American public with. This “tough Love” approach was and is very misguided and in my opinion more damaging to the patients then the disease its self.
