One of the most important things you can do is let a provider know that people who care are watching them, seeing what is being prescribed and how much is being charged. Often times disreputable rehabilitation facilities will over prescribe for profit – if no one is holding them accountable.

If you are going to a treatment facility and you are of legal age, or have a loved one going, it is very important to sign a medical authorization form so that someone who you trust has the right to call up and request information about what drugs you are being given.

After this form is signed, do not let the treatment facility talk you into revoking it.
