Freedom house did not operate from a harm reduction pretense. We were forced to call ourselves addicts, and I recently found that the term addict is an outdated term from the 1980's. I informed the rehab center therapist and staff that I was a human trafficking victim and they were unable to refer me to any resources. I feel that they did not provide us enough alternative activities such as being able to exercise daily, yoga, dance, meditation, or other such coping skills in order to replace the addictive behaviors. I feel that the rehab was ran more like a disciplinary institution rather than a therapeutic environment. I also researched and found that they receive large amounts of money for this program and I could not believe that they were not able to offer us substandard toiletries. In addition, I did not agree with having to use our own bridge cards to provide house food. The food menu was also not organic or healthy. The therapy treatment was outdated.
