Orange County’s DA, Tony Rackauckas, recently created the ‘Sober Living Home Accountability Task Force’, in order to deal with the recently revealed abuses of the anti-addiction industry in Southern California’s Rehab Riviera.
Notably, this investigation into rogue Socal Drug Rehab facilities looks like the successful efforts handled by the Palm Beach County and their own anti-addiction abuses task force in 2016, with the endeavor led by the county’s State Attorney, Dave Aronberg. Since the task force’s formation, Palm Beach authorities have made 44 arrests related to rehab-industry abuse cases.
As a result of Palm Beach’s efforts, however, many of the rogue rehabs in that state emigrated, and has hidden themselves amidst the many Socal Drug Rehab facilities, primarily plaguing that region, which lead to Rackauckas’s task force being formed.
Aronberg recently paid a visit to the Southern California News Group, the news group responsible for the initial investigation to the rogue Socal Drug Rehab facilities in order to shed light into the abuses of the anti-addiction industry, which then lead to the formation of the Rackauckas’s task force.
Now considered one of America’s experts on the rehab problem, Aronberg has been sharing his wisdom, what he’s done to deal with the issue and how it might be helpful with regards to the similar situation in California.
According to him, thousands of addicts have been moving into South Florida’s rehab facilities, only to leave injured or dead. He notes that this issue is exactly what’s happening in Orange County. Palm Beach has recently been working on cracking down on the abuses of the drug treatment industry.
He detailed the cycle of abuse victims fall into in the rogue rehab facilities, where their insurance is taken as kickback. The victims of the rogue facilities are left on their own once their insurance has been taken, and will likely end up relapsing, or worse. After that, the cycle repeats.
He says that to deal with this problem, enacting strict anti-patient brokering laws, and reasonable measures set by local governments, with permission from lobby Congress. All of these set as milestones until a grand jury can be impaneled to deal with the issue.
