It's a good places to get out of jail sooner. The case workers gives you they phone number and extension. Tells the family if you have any question to call. Show your support for the recovering family addict. But when they seems to be a problem in the addict recovery. The case workers don't return your phone call about your concerns. So the only thing you can listen to is the recovery addict who has a long history of manipulating lies. Once again the addict has gotten away with something recently about accusing me and caused problems in my family. Later admitting the information was wrong. Sorry and trusting don't cut it with me anymore. My wife her mother tried to call several times leaving messages in attempts in finding out what the problem was. Supposed to be a honest program. Don't even get Honest any answers from the counselors there. The Families deserve someone to be honest with them .I worked for the New York State Corrections for 29 years.. I know when someone isn't walking the talk and just talking the walk. I don't understand how a recovery addict in her first 30 days in a rehab can make so many phone calls to anyone or anywhere and anytime she wants too.. She should be focusing on her recovery and not the outside world. It's irresponsible of the counselor not to call the family back. What are they hidding? Are they enabling in they recovering or enabling them? She must be learning to be a better victim.. I am sure the facility in Maryland gets money for taking the inmates from the Maryland system. They claim it runs on contributions. I have to come to my own conclusions since no one there is willing to return phone calls. I am sure the facility. Scammers working with scammers. It's always about the money. So contacted them and the director called. I wasn't home and the director, case worker with the doctor talked to my wife on speaker phone. Said that her daughter handled it by her calling us. {She couldn’t ever handled anything truthfully. Thats why she abused drugs and in and out of jail. } Asking my wife if she knew about me writing. What did they try to do? Instagate more trouble in the family. They said that they could consider her too send her back to jail. Because of what I wrote. That they don't need the trouble. Never explaining why or what the accusation was all about. This all could of been avoided if the case worker just returned and answered the accusation of my wife bringing in a cell phone and about me calling the facility saying the she was on facebook. All false accusations made. The statement that Gaudenzia made could consider her to send her back to jail is the solution of family intervention. They are more worried about they reputation then Rehabilitation.
