Just for Fun…The Tree

Posted by William Berry | Filed under Blog | 5 Comments

Okay, I have a million things to do with the new semester approaching. But maybe I just want to play with my new toy right after Christmas a little bit. So, just for fun, what do those of you who choose to respond think the meaning of the tree in the banner is?

Recently we have had several clients present for psychotherapy treatment who are court stipulated to a drug program because of drug charges. Of course this is no surprise. But what is surprising is the level of charges and the clients we are seeing. For example, one of our clients could be confused with just about any other hockey mom (perhaps a recent exception). She is white, upper middle class, college educated, and working in a professional position. And although she has drug trafficking charges, which are a felony, the drugs she had in her possession were for private use and were prescription (of course she didn’t have a prescription). What is even more surprising is that she didn’t even …
