Three a Trend Does Make

First James Frey dupes America (and Oprah!) into thinking he was a drug addled alcoholic who survived rehab in A Million Little Pieces. Then last week somebody lied about being saved by wolves after fleeing from the Nazis (Come on! how did no one call that?). Now there's some chick from California who lied about being a half-white, half-Native American foster child who ran drugs for the Bloods (Again, how did someone not catch that?).

Soon America will have to deal with the consequences when John McCain comes clean and tells us that his memoir, Faith of My Fathers, is a farce and that he's actually a robot.

Hi,
Nice Blog!
Drug Rehabilitation is a multi-phase, multi-faceted, long term process. Detoxification is only the first step on the road of addiction treatment. Physical detoxification alone is not sufficient to change the patterns of a drug addict. Recovery from addiction involves an extended process which usually requires the help of drug addiction professionals. To make a successful recovery, the addict needs new tools in order to deal with situations and problems which arise. Factors such as encountering someone from their days of using, returning to the same environment and places, or even small things such as smells and objects trigger memories which can create psychological stress. This can hinder the addict's goal of complete recovery, thus not allowing the addict to permanently regain control of his or her life.
