A drug addict has a psychological craving as well, which returns even when the physical dependence is overcome. The best-known treatment center Hazelden claims that 53 percent of its patients stay clean for a year—in other words almost half its clients relapse within months. Nationwide, 12-step programs do poorly in treating painkiller abuse: relapse rates after a year approach 80 percent. Limbaugh has tried treatment twice before this.There are many reports of Rush's ability to drive a golf ball 250 yards and participate in The Bob Hope Classic and the Pebble Beach Pro/Am despite his claim of abusing the medication because of his herniated disk. This seems to be a pattern leading back to his military deferment for an "Anal Cyst" that supports the notion that the Limbo Mumbo Jumbo will use any excuse to escape responsibility while holding everyone else to a higher standard.
