That’s a lot of $ to most of us, but $450K/year is really only @ $1200/day which is not that outrageous for a first class rehab facility. I’d bet the Betty Ford center in Palm Springs and other top of the line facilities that cater to the rich and famous all charge in that range. Most patients only stay in rehab for 1-3 months.
This rehab costs in one year more than a Harvard or Stanford education over 4 years costs, to be very very modest, and raises definite issues.
If they stay that long.
I am the oldest of 4 my middle sister got saddled with our baby brother after he blew the money he sold the paid for trailer our mom had owned o her death. He always lived with her. He is a alcoholic. Only keeps a job because they cover for him. I am not that tender of heart for people like my brother. He will not admit he is an addict, nor seek medical help. He is 52,looks 75. Shakes, can barely walk, DT’s after 2 hrs and no booze. I’d let him pass out and call the cops and say he was screaming irrationally about committing suicide. And let them haul him off for 30 day mental evaluation.
He need not come to me, baby sis does not want him either.
