Janellen27, instead of going 0-60 in a second, why don't you explain why you would post on a public site what you posted? You posted, again on a public site, that you think the manager is being protected. Why? Enlighten us. BTW - I am not in the program thank God! But you keep kicking about others lashing out against posters!

Let it go, Bob. Irrelevant. Focus on the topic. I asked, Bill explained, end of story. If you must persist, however, give me your E-mail address; I'll be glad to take the time to explain. No need to further distract the other posters from their discussion about the program.

if you read the website for leroy's lodge it says helping those with addiction. It doesn't specify only alcohol addiction so this doesn't mean former drug addicts aren't living here.

OK guys, lets please stay away from any types of personal attacks or insulting comments. I'm not singling anyone out I'm just saying that the debate can be had without pot shots being taken.
