Choices isn't tough love, it's an abusive cult. I understand tough love, and I believe that almost all addicts need it to break through the power of addiction. But community humiliation, threats on your personal safety, taking life-sustaining medications away from you (they are not medical doctors), and stealing your personal items including your mail is not tough love. It's criminal.
Carol, I feel for your daughter. Most people I know of that has left choices has been thrown away like a piece of trash, just like they did to your daughter. I even witnessed one client chasing down another who left in Winter Park and physically attack him. Tough Love?
Your daughter, like myself and many others, are living proof that there is a wonderful world of recovery outside of the confines of ccc.
