Bob Meehan is a kind of anti-drug guru. His methods are rather controversial. One of the programs he has influenced is The Insight program in Georgia.
I guess that if you have a problem and wants to find peace while dealing with it locking your self up in a rehab can be a choice, but if others do it against your will it cannot be fun for a teenager.

A former addict named Bob Meehan created a number of drug rehab programs. Once the clients were able to leave the program they were not that satisfied.
About the founder it is stated:
Meehan is a bigot. He refers to Muslims as “towel-heads”. He refers to Jesus as a “dead (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))-boy on a stick”, offending both Christians and (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))). Africans are referred to as “(((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))” and staff is taught that Africans are less evolved than whites. Hispanics are called “(((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))” or “(((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))).” Women are b***hes. Gays, according to Meehan are “(((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))” or “(((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))” who “suck their own s*** off other people’s d****.” These are Meehan’s words.
Meehan sits atop this empire yet he has no education, no training, no license (as a clinician), no certifications, and no degrees. To my knowledge he has not attended a single training class in his 30+ years as the “Father of Drug Intervention”. He knows nothing of pharmacology, cannot state the 12-core functions of substance abuse counseling, and has never completed any type of supervised practicuum. He is simply an ex-convict who claims to have a better understanding of addiction and recovery than anyone else in the world.
It does not sound like a fun place to be as a teenager.
