Wow. It's a MIRACLE!
8 April 2016 | by frownaroundSee all my reviews

Wow. That simple, hey? Just go sleep it off for a week. Then get into rehab. Seriously? You can't go to rehab until your clean? Ugh. I'm still trying to figure out why she was going through opiate withdrawal because of cocaine. But hey, get some sleep and distraction for a few days, chill in rehab then you're all set to help others with their life destroying turmoil. Anti-Drug propaganda created by people who know little to nothing about drugs or the millions upon millions of people who use them. Dumb. Most people who use drugs are not messed up. Non users just have no idea because most people who use drugs are just. like. them.
