halfway house

Jason Bellows was a Florida inmate on his way out of prison and back into the real world. 

This week: The religious objection to Obamacare's requirement that birth control be free and available makes its way to the Supreme Court again. Baltimore's lead paint problem won't go away.  We've also got a sad tale about the exploitative side of Florida's addiction recovery industry, and some hopeful news that more doctors will soon be ready and able to treat people with substance abuse disorders. Plus, there's a turf war brewing over American livers. 

Operating a halfway house for recovering addicts is a profitable business in Florida, where there is little regulation; naturally, it's attracting swindlers and ex-felons.
