NPR said drug rehab doesn't work, just this morning

On the FM this morning, they had a piece about drug rehab.  It was not encouraging.  They said the success rate was down around 5%, i.e. 95% of the druggies who go thru rehab go back to using drugs shortly after they leave rehab.  They did say that more psychotherapy was needed in drug rehab programs.  They did not bother to describe the treatment plan in existing drug rehab programs.
