You always here about "tough love" be used against addicts etc. but the people almost always continue the behavior as soon as they get out of rehab or jail. It seems like the family and friends of the person are just venting the resentment they have for the person and deluding themselves into thinking they are helping. Blackmailing someone into spending a certain amount of time in rehab (like on "Intervention") just puts the addict through hell and the ones that do make it are the ones that come back mindless religious fanatics that have replaced the drug with rediculous fundamentlism. Forcing someone to go to rehab when the are not ready/ do not want to just seems like a waste that family and friends use to get off; it's sickening. I am aware that in some uncommon cases it may work, but an addict really needs to make the choice themself.
