As you are probably aware by your reference to Banyan Treatment Centers, here in South Florida the treatment of substance abuse is a billion dollar business.
People from all over the United States come here to detox in varying degrees of comfortable surroundings from beachside villas with swaying palm trees to barracks-like accommodations nestled discreetly into middle class communities as to make them appear as innocuous as possible.
You may have seen a commercial on TV with a young bearded man dressed in scrubs
with a cheap stethoscope strewn around his neck exhorting the afflicted as to of the importance of seeking treatment. (and they can always help)
These commercials function as concentrating centers and brokers for detox businesses that pay handsomely to have their services considered by those in need.
As a result of the epidemic of substance abuse ranging from the very young to the elderly, many nursing positions are available in inpatient as well as outpatient venues; and that's the good news.
Now for the alternative perspective: Many of these businesses are operated by individuals, believe it or not, who have zero experience in providing substance abuse services; except for the fact that they may have been substance abusers at one time themselves.
Many are also Social Workers or Psychologists or Lawyers and others who also happen to be business oriented people with access to working capital who recognize a gold mine when they see it.
So where does all this leave the nursing professionals? Well despite all the training and the importance of hopefully being able to identify the seriously ill from the healthy but addicted patient, the nurse very often becomes a mindless technically oriented functionary dispensing the usual ever tampering dosing of this or that prescribed medication. (not very challenging, but it's a living, I guess)
So at the the risk of underplaying the importance of these businesses to society, it is important to know that the recidivism rate for substance abuse patients is up to 60%.
With this said, maybe this figure would be much less if the profit motive was subsumed under the aegis of the true-blue Nursing Profession.
So, OP thank you for the thread and the opportunity to advocate for nurses owning the means of production.
That nurse among nurses might be YOU!
