The Disappearance of Jessica Garino: Like A Bad Neighbor
One thing that does come to mind is the state of rehab and recovery needs to keep improving. The problem? Much like treatments for cancer, I’m not sure much has changed in this area in the last 40 years. Yes, more people survive from cancer now, but that’s only because diagnosing it sooner has gotten better. Breast exams. Prostate tests. Etc. Whereas the treatment is still the same: radiation and chemo.
Likewise, my perception is rehab places are no better at what they do now than 50 years ago. Yes, there are successes. But . . . there are many failures. Failures that happen over and over and over. Likewise, there are addicts who are in the darkest of places—Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue, for example—who completely recover. And there are others with just half the problems, who do drugs and ruin their lives until the day they die.
Meaning, there is no rhyme or reason to the treatment. It seems like it is all just . . . guessing. And to that point, the stats say we have more addicts—to be both legal and illegal drugs—than has ever existed in the history of the world. So, that also proves what is being done is not consistently working.
Crack down on the drug companies who pushed doctors to prescribe all these opiates for financial gain despite knowing the risks? Sure, that might work. But then what do we say to all the people who have used opioids, not gotten addicted, and recovered from their pain by using them?
Jessica Lynn Garino was a 21 year old from Goldsboro, NC. She had two sisters and had been the manager of a Wendy’s. Around January 22, 2012, Jessica’s roommate, a man she had known for a few years, said she took off with her dog and clothes for no reason. He said he had no idea where Jessica went. She was never seen again.
