An Autobiographical Account of Alcohol Addiction and trying to navigate the Health Care Industry. Having Health Insurance DOES NOT automatically equate to Health CARE!
Uncle Obama is trying to achieve a first year feather in his cap to rank his term in the likes of FDR, JFK and LBJ with his Obamacare package. He's already breaking ground on his Presidential Library -
DON'T believe the BULLSHIT! You don't Rush that kind of fix.

To actually recieve rehab treatment, having health insurance is worthless. 

 Well, to be more politically correct so I don't piss anybody off ( I really do halfway care!), health insurance can be worthless when trying to get help for an alcohol addiction. 

  Politicians campaign for mandatory health coverage - Health coverage doesn't always equate to health care.

  I managed to find the difference between the two.

  The guaranteed way to get addiction treatment is to get into trouble with the law (usually) and have the rehab treatment ordered by a court of law, or you need to be wealthy enough to pay for the treatment up front, before you enter the facility.  One or the other.  The rehab industry helps a lot of people, but first of all, they help themselves to the wallets of people that are in a vulnerable state ............ It's nothing personal, it's just business.

  Thanks to Mainstream Media and Hollywood (and let's not forget the American fascination with celebrity gossip), going through any form of addiction rehabilitation at least once in a career is not only normal in today's environment, it is almost expected and considered "a cool thing" to go through.  Careers that are destined to take "THE DUMP" can now be revived by a two week stint in rehab, if managed correctly of course.

   This book is a true story, and a fast read. It is far from your normal addiction to rehab to happily ever after crap, so you won't find any of the traditional "Boo-Hoo, why me, It's my mommies fault", or my personal favorite - " I'm an asshole cuz my dad beat me when I was three!" mundaneity.  The biography didn't need to be embellished - the real life stupidity factors embedded into the systems we encountered were priceless all on their own! 

  At a certain point in time it actually became comical in it's own twisted way! THAT is the only way to deal with it.

  Laws that are set up to protect patients leave doctors powerless or afraid to make descisions, and the ambulance chasing lawyers keep good doctors from practicing ground breaking medicine.

  Can you hear that sound? That CHA-CHING is the sound of another lawyer jacking up the cost of health insurance. 

   Nine years worth of a Health Care Hayride is what this book is about.
