Show Notes:

BC's courts often order addicts to clean up at recovery homes. But many of BC's recovery homes are unlicensed and unregulated. The poor conditions and lack of certified operators often leads addicts to fall back into substance abuse. Stark Raven interviews Jen McMillan about her experiences in recovery homes and why she wants to see things change.
