Blogging From State-Funded Rehab

Kirk Klocke is a medical journalist and also an addict. He has a blog where he writes candidly about his depression (“where I am in life — $100,000 in debt, no money, no place to stay, no significant other, and well-earned family mistrust”). He’s currently in a state-funded treatment center and is blogging about it via the mail and the help of a friend (Scientific American’s addiction writer Cassie Rodenberg). It’s bleak: “We arrived at Keystone Treatment Center, which looks like the kind of nursing home you end up in if you don’t save anything for retirement and no one in your life cares about you.”
