Joke Rehab

Two drug/alcohol rehab programs in the same city. Both in major hospitals.

Program A:
For the duration of their stay, patients have no visitors, no phone calls, no personal electronics, and watch a community TV.

Program B: Patients walk around with cell phones, play on their lap tops (hurray for wifi) and hang out with anyone from the street who wanders in to visit. I've learned each patient room will soon have its own cable TV.

Which program do you suppose has the higher success rate for long-term sobriety? Well, just the fact that these patients aren't making drug deals during their hospitalization, or having their buds slip them bud/smack/crack/blow/whatever during visiting hours...um, I'd have to guess A.

Now which program do you think is funded solely by taxpayer dollars?

Well, it's not A.

Now, that's the sort of news that pisses me off -- irritates me. A lot.

But better informed than oblivious; right?
