While presenting at the Southeastern Employment & Training Association (SETA) Workforce Development Conference in Louisville, Tim Robinson, CEO of Addiction Recovery Care, says:

"If we invest in people struggling with addiction by treating their medical and clinical needs, training them to enter the workforce, and connecting them to meaningful employment, we will continue to turn the tide against this deadly epidemic of addiction."

So what you are saying is that I can go out,do drugs, run up medical bills at tax payers expense, overdose and run up more medical bills at the tax payers expense, get the help and treatment at the tax payers expense and then get a job. That is pure bullcrap my friend. Find another way. The REAL HEROES are the people that have never touched it.
Actually, the REAL HEROS are the ones who have overcome addiction.

I'm going to try this again to see if my comment will be posted this time. I would like to know if addicts are treated free of charge at any of Tim Robinson's recovery centers? If he cares about them then it's the Christian thing to do. Also does he get the addicts treatment approved through Medicaid (which the taxpayers fund)? I'd like for Tim Robinson to answer these questions.

You know the answer! Tim is drumming up business for himself !!!! And its NOT free!

Treatment of any kind is not free. If you go to doctor or hospital your insurance pays or you pay out of your pocket, or some sort of assistance program pays for it. Why would you expect it to be free? That's what's wrong with this area. Everybody wants everything free. Always looking for a handout--when what they need is a hand up, and help so they can overcome this problem, get a job, and turn their life around.

The problem is that this Drug bunch is involved in most of the things in Louisa and have a run of most everything too, but I know for a fact that some of these workers that work there are spending a lot more money then what they had before they started working in these businesses so it is either a lot of money coming in or a cover up of something else and they are putting more businesses in that are a satellite company's to what the same people are using for money and some are involved in the city too but what do I know?
You are exactly right!!! I've also noticed a couple of the bigger churches are making drug abuse and rehab their main topic anymore.

I would bet the vast majority of his clients pay for their rehab through Obamacare. What will they do if and when Bevins cuts the assistance to folks eligible for Medicaid....

Get a Job?

So he is going to treat them free of charge out of the kindness of his heart and because he knows they need the help and it's the Christian thing to do...Is that right Tim Robinson?? You wouldn't dare take tax payers money to do treat these poor addicts would you? I would love answers to these questions.
