What to do on visit from drug rehab?

Question by Rusty Nail: What to do on visit from drug rehab?
My sister is 17 and has been in a court ordered drug rehab facility for the past 8 months.

She now gets 12 hours visits away from the facility, and on those visits my mother likes to have her go tanning, to the mall, get nails done, etc. I think that time should be spent going to colleges, the library … something like that so that when she is out she can do something with her life. My mom says this is her “reward” time and has elaborate plans for fun stuff.

What do you think?

I think rehab can be a crock and your sister should look into RR (rational recovery). On the other hand, your sister should decide what she wants to do with her free time. If the rehab program is a good program, it will be teaching her about self care and about pursuing goals in life (first case, what your mom is doing, second case, what you want). Based on what she decides her values are and aligning her goals with these, she can best use her time.

Answer by michael m
I think instead of having your nails done while being out on a pass on rehab. You guys should be talking about what has she learned and what tools have she learned from rehab and what NA meeting is she going to after she gets out. This drug rehab program is not just 28 days long its for a life time. You guys should be her support group and be more involved during here visits out. There is no rewarding of rehab except the gift its self of being clean!

Answer by mcdannells
Then after you call the help line the fist lady put in there, get a hold of a mental health place and get her into profetional mental health to find out why she feels she has to self medicate in the first place.
Or maybe they do that in dug rehab places??
She could more then likely get on the state medical who would pay to help her? This is what it is there for.
Good luck

Manslaughter in Pennsylvania?

Question by Brennan K: Manslaughter in Pennsylvania?
If you turn yourself in, show tons of remorse, and there was no premeditated intent to injure, as well as a mental imbalance, (schizophrenia) along with a drug addiction, would the defendent get a lighter sentence? I would think rehab, then maybe a halfway house/some jailtime. Does anyone have any other possible penalties?

This is NOT condoning murder or violence in any way.
Just so everyone knows, this isn’t me. I just heard this on the news.
I read some of the PA law, and it says that you have to be committing a crime for second degree murder. And all other types of murder are third degree.
