The Genoa City Rehab Center: Wowsers. Did the PTB do any research at all on this issue? I've not been to rehab, but I have a close friend who has been in and out of it, and there are a few "problems" with this storyline:
1. Cell Phones: a given. One can't be communicating with those people/ situations that are a "threat" to your sobriety.
2. Male/Female residents meeting privately in rooms. Yeah, a BIG no no. LOL
3. Third parties (spouses or not) giving orders as to who can or can't visit you. That is up to the resident and their counselor.
4. No one can visit a resident until they have been in the program at least 30 days. In some cases, it's 60 days.
Those are the rules for STATE rehabs, if the exclusive rich rehabs are run the way GC is, no wonder Lindsey and Brittany ran out so quickly - where is the freedom to actually rehabilitate your thought processes if the external problems that drove you to substance abuse are still accessible to you?!
The get-hitched-quick-and-cash-in plot:
Ok, so I can drug Victor, whisk him off to Vegas, get married even though it's apparent that he's not sober or thinking clearly for himself, and grab a picture. I could even kill him on the way home from the wedding ceremony.
However, if I didn't have him change his will BEFORE we left, when he dies, his Kids still get all the dough. I can put it in court for years and freeze the assets, but that is the ONLY power I possess. LOL
Feel free to add your own thoughts to this. LOL
