A post on TomCat's blog. Not a privatization story, but the next thing to it: a publicly traded corporation providing health care services - at a cost.

Thanks for this post! Wolves in sheep's clothing like this need to be exposed.

I subscribe to Mother Jones and read that article too. It was human tragedy and those promoting rehab centers were often suppliers of drugs as well. The cost in human suffering is immense and that these places are essentially unregulated and pop up everywhere they're hard to shut down or control. I don't believe in hell but there should be a special place for people like this in all manner of things - I call that prison.

So sad, and so depressing to read how these places are.
All for making the almighty $$$ at the cost of lives, and in NOT helping the patient and his/her family to get them well, and on the road to recovery.
Furies, y'all know what to do.

Thanks Joanne for post.

They need to have their licenses suspended, have the place(s) shut down, and Cartwright needs indictment!

With these million-dollar judgements against them and a class-action lawsuit coming up, AAC will undoubtedly cut back on staff and resources at its facilities while pushing their sales people to make more ‘sales’, only enhancing this downward spiral and killing more people who come to them in their need and desperation. Please, Furies, don’t let it get to that.
