Rehab not exactly medicine says Kiedis

When Avril Lavigne had her pop at Britney for going to rehab, it didn't quite ring true. On the other hand, when Anthony Keidis dismisses time spent amongst group hugs and soft pillows as a pointless exercise, you get the impression that at least he knows a little whereof he talks:

“Rehab is full of a lot of quacks that want to instantly diagnose you as this or that, or with something you might not actually have, just because you’re on a bad drug run or something.

“Then you show up and suddenly they decide you’re manic depressive.

“If you wanna get well, you’ll find a way.”

Of course, the truth is somewhere in between. It might help if journalists stopped using "rehab" when they mean "a refreshing spa break" for a start.
