Say No to AA for a DUI – Stand up for 1st Amendment Rights

ACLU image

I think its that time of the year where many might find themselves being sent to AA.

Many have no idea that AA is not a government agency. That AA is not regulated by the state. That AA is not safe. That AA is not a drug treatment program . It’s a  group—- a fellowship….lay persons coming together.

So why are our courts sending EVERYONE to AA meetings for any violation and why are the Courts interconnected with rehabs, sober livings that are totally 12 step run. How long has this been going on? Since Drug court began in 1989? No ….it started before that , but when drug courts began it got oh so much worse.

 

Now in AA, some are there to help. Some are there to harm. Some are there to serve so they can stay “sober” ….AA style….. Some are there to take whatever they can and never give back.

But where’s the warning label for Alcoholic Anonymous? Like Cigarettes…one day an Insider who worked in the industry outed those guys. We think AA needs to be outed for who is there, who is sent there and who goes there to prey on innocent civilians.

Even though there is a “leader” or “secretary” who picks or is picked that day or the week before – they don’t necessarily lead unless its a cult group like the PG group-

Most AA members don’t feel  empowered to really lead for the most part.

When they read the preamble before every meeting — how come they don’t say

” AA is a drug /alcohol treatment program” . ..oh that’s right …That’s because it is not that. So what is AA really? Is it a fellowship? Then how can you get ordered to join a religious organization from a Judge? Is it a religion? TO some it is. It’s religious for sure.

Over 35 Courts have Deemed it so. Is it a Drug Treatment Program? No —-other wise it would need to be regulated by the state. But AA’s rehabs grandfathered themselves in way back when as something called ” NON Medical treatment and they are governed by The Department of Health? How is this going on ? Well it is.

So I guess the next question is how do we undo this. So if it’s not medical treatment how is Insurance paying for it . I mean rehab— 30 K a month- or $1,000 a day paid by Athem Blue Cross for Action Family where no medical anything is occurring…Just being bused to AA meetings. Just attending AA meetings. No doctors, no PhD’s, no groups let by real therapists? And maybe your daughter or son may be bused to a place where all the AA meetings are filled with men like Eric Earle, near trailer parks- connected to the DOC filled with not so wonderful not really AA members. That your Daughter or son may mix and mingle with these kinds of criminals.

We need to educate the public and stop the judges and the ab541 classes from sending people to AA for a DUI offense.

The 13th Step the Film – NOW Available on VIMEO to RENT and BUY

Here is a short synopsis of what we hope to change and effect:

Change Federal and State Laws around AA coercion and 12 step plea bargaining with Sex and violent offenders.

Force AA to add safety and sexual harassment policy. This would include forcing them to have Area and District “Make AA Safer Workshops” all over the county. Create a hotline for those assaulted and harassed. Have a paid AA person, or some professional employee to travel the country dealing with places that are most dangerous and grievous with bad situations. Post my literature everywhere, including a Sexual Harassment and Financial Scamming Poster at the entry way to every meeting.

Put a warning on their site main GSO AA.org  and on all AA meeting sites.

Have a Safety statement read before every meeting.

Have a warning read that it is illegal to give medical advice to other members about Medications members take.

Make it policy that No Person under 18 may attend a meeting.

Educate the public on the 7 other free options.

Educate the public what is really going on in AA and shine the light and expose the truth.

Thanks. I appreciate all the contributions so far and the feedback as well.
