They aren't free but aren't expensive either.
Not sure but can't people be court ordered to rehab? You're right though, there is no security and you can just walk out. I guess people who are court ordered choose to stay or breach their agreement. I know people can be 'white carded' or whatever they call it and committed to treatment (mental health ward, etc.)
Definitely agree there needs to be more options/support etc!!

Maybe we're talking about 2 different things?
I think when you mean court ordered, like part of parole but its still voluntary, a court doesn't actually order it but will release you early if you tell them thats what you're doing. Does that make sense?
Even still with all this we were unable to get him committed. The process is a nightmare. He's been in and out of rehab his whole life.
And yes it makes sense. I guess for offences punishable by incarceration, there isn't really an option at this stage. More needs to be done inside jails, etc and beyond to address these real issues IMO.
