target of re-hab?

Today in my mail box was a ltter to my husband. This is the 3rd time we have gotten this letter. It was hand written from a Re-Hab House in Southern California to my husband asking him if a loved one had a drug or alcohol problem. I can't help wonder if they are targeting me? I use prescription pain medication. These letters started coming shortly after I was put on Oxycontin CR. We have had no problems with our daughter so I don't think she is the target.

I wonder where they get their solicitation data from? Could it be from my pharmacy or my Insurance?

I find it insulting. I talked to my husband about it and he said lots of people get these. Not to be insulted. I can't help it.



  • Julie,

    I'm inclined to agree with your husband. For a while I was getting these hand written "invites" to join a weight loss center. The funny part? At that time I was 110lbs! (G)

    I am not sure where they get their info from, but I wouldn't feel targeted if I were you.

    PCTF C4 - T2, Laminectomies C5, C6 & C7. Severe Palsy left arm/hand.
  • I often get mailings for pre-paying my funeral expenses, and I'm not quite ready for that yet.
    3 level spinal fusion, L3/4, L4/5, L5/S1, November 2008. Stiff, but I can walk.
  • Yes, the same thing has happened to me, handwritten note from a rehab when I was on patches- I assumed it was pharmacy selling records - very illegal but they definitely do it.
  • :? Of course they target people..not just people that take pain meds..but everyone. I'm diabetic as well and I get all kinds of stuff in emails and regular mail about it and products...The Insurance companies sell info. and get kick backs... All about the Benjamins...
