I loved my 37 months I spent there.  I was smoking almost every day when I went into Pathways.   I was angry and not moving forward in my life.  With the grace of pathways the the wonderful treatment modality tht is used there, I am king....Pathways is my God.

Yes, I too agree. My time there totaled almost 60 months, but it was worth every day.  I was not able to graduate from middle school or high school, but I am alive.   I wasn't able to pass my GED, but I now work at pathways cleaning the offices and bathrooms.  Thank Jesus for my savior - Pathways

Now, now, Mo.  Don't you recognize someone who's being ironic?  I doubt that someone "saved" by them would write that way.  But, if they are sincere, you've just stifled them.  Is that really what you want?

60 months was worth it.  I was smoking lots of pot before I went in.  I was smoking pot at least 4 times a week for God's sake.   I skipped school many times, I missed almost 11 days of  8th grade because I just couldn't accept authority.  Sure, I was humiliated for many months, BUT I DESERVED IT!  I WAS SMOKING CIGS AND POT AND NEED TO GET IT TOGETHER!   IF IT WASN'T FOR PATHWAYS I WOULD BE DEAD, IN JAIL OR INSANE BY NOW.  DON'T YOU PEOPLE GET IT.  PATHWAYS IS MY HIGHER POWER!  PATHWAYS IS MY GOD!   I consider staff like jesus's apostles.

Yeah, Mo, the guy is being ironic.  He's yelling because we saw through him.  I'd like to hear from someone who really did benefit from Pathways.  I think this guy is just pulling your leg, pushing your buttons if you know what I mean.  If he is real, it might be a good idea to draw him out by logic and argument.  Ask him to explain why he thinks the treatment he got enabled him to live a more fulfilling life. In all likelihood he could have grown out of it if he hadn't had his mummy & daddy panic about his normal teenage behaviour.  And pot? For every single pot-smoker who might need treatment, I'll bet you could point out a dozen who do not.  Pot's benefits to the many - as a means of relaxing, as a means of heightening one's appreciation of music, for example, far outweigh the purported damage to the odd person who might just be unable to control themselves.  But then they might have pre-existing problems.  
You note how those people who extol the virtues of these abusive centres are all pretty much religious fundamentalists?  Sounds like pathways is just a more severe form of hot-gospelling meeting place to me..  truly cult-like.  But come on, you Pathways supporters, lets hear something a little more substantive than SHOUTING and irrational reliance on religion & superstition!

alrighty, I will give you something more.  I was a messed up kid.  I smoked pot and that is ILLEGAL!!  Doing illegal stuff is wrong.  I fought for over 4 years, but finally I grew up.  I went in at 14 and left just after I turned 19 adn I  deserved what happened to me.  Pathways, oh pathways, you are my God, you are my life, you are my savior.  I am nothing with out pathways.  It is my destiny.

Obviously this guy is full of shit. I know for a fact noone stayed at pathway 60 months.The most I ever heard of was 29. I graduated in 2001, and I would have heard of a situation like that. I also know the woman who cleans the bathroom, and unless anonymous is a big black woman named Dorothy, he's full of shit! LIAR!!!

Yeah, right.  Smoking pot is wrong because it's illegal.  Why is it illegal? because its wrong!   Ok then.  I can't find that either in the ten commandments or in the beatitudes so... who determined that it was wrong.  Oh, I know... those racists zealots in the days of prohibition who didn't like the idea of those black or mexican pot smoking dudes smoking pot then coming and fucking their white women.   Or worse -- supplying it to the white women , THEN fucking them.    Oh my god, the horror the horror.
Racism is still alive and well in America and we see it in the rantings of John Walter

You're a bovine brainwashed fool. Learn to think for yourself. I weep for your future. You were chewed up and spit out by a cult dumb-ass. Beleive it. I'm so glad I was never as impressionable as you. I too was in for 4 years.
