This week on the SV411 Podcast, Metro staffer Jennifer Wadsworth returns to discuss her latest cover story, “Rehab Gone Rogue,” which tells the story of a local drug rehab center with a sordid history. According to court documents and on-record allegations, patients seeking treatment at Life Choices found themselves thrust into situations—such as being forced to work at hard-drinking bars—where their recovery was put into jeopardy.
After Life Choices was shut down in 2014, the man in charge of the operation, Richard Franko, managed to open a new rehab center called Red Road Recovery. Sources say he is profiting from others’ addictions. He says he’s being unjustly vilified.
