Rehabilitation centers perform essential, and often life-changing or life-saving functions. They may treat drug or alcohol addictions or may provide occupational and other therapy for patients recovering from serious injuries or illnesses. Entering a rehabilitation center, you have the rightful expectation that you will be treated with respect and will receive proper care based on your unique needs. You expect that your basic human rights will be observed. Unfortunately, this does not always occur.
