Parents- Children with Addiction – opiates or alcohol -Advise

As a long time ex AA member I HIGHLY recommend you DO NOT send your children to any 12 step rehab or sober living. AA is 95 % fail rate.

  • The FBI is cracking down and investigating Insurance Fraud for SOBER LIVING
  • Ask what credentials those working there have.
  • Treatment does not take place in SOBER Living.
  • Sober Living has NO DOCTOR – its a house that is over priced where your children may be treated like they are in prison
  • In CA and Pennsylvania no background checks happen in those rehabs.
  • Even and IOP Intensive outpatient may just be More AA – Big Book Studies and watching bad AA propaganda Movies like 28 days with Sandra Bullock.
  • Body Brokering and Kickbacks are going on all over the USA with rehab and Sober Living Fraud.
  • Being an AA member does not make one an expert on anything except their own drinking, drugging, failures and success.
  • Criminals can be also sent to your kids soner living.
  • Heroin may be swirling around and in those rehabs and sober livings. Your child is better off coming home to YOU.
  • Please research and Attend Craft for families. Stay away from Al ANON.
  • AA members are not experts and have NO TRAINING! Do not listen to them unless they prove to be trusted. Men who are intersted in your sons may be pedophiles.
  • Your teens should NEVER go to AA or NA meetings without YOU!

AA member found guilty of rape of two AA women Newbury Park, CA

A jury found a Newbury Park man guilty of sexually assaulting two women he met through Alcoholics Anonymous programs.

After about a two-week trial in Ventura County Superior Court, jurors on Thursday voted unanimously and found William Beliveau, 64, guilty of one felony count of sexual penetration of an adult woman while she was intoxicated, said Senior Deputy District Attorney Erik Nasarenko.

Jurors also found Beliveau guilty of one felony count of sexual penetration of an adult woman while she was asleep or unconscious. The Newbury Park man could face a maximum of 10 years in state prison when he returns to court for sentencing on Aug. 24, Nasarenko said.

Hollywood AA kills another actor- “True Blood” Star Nelsan Ellis dies from withdrawal from alcohol

I was sad to hear that this actor Nelsan Ellis died from kicking alcohol- Going cold turkey is never a good idea when addicted to alcohol. But its not uncommon for Hollywood to push ALL AA on its fellow actors. Sad sad situation.

I wonder if he knew about Naltrexone, vitvitrol and using a Harm Reduction Method over time, then quitting. There are Doctors who will work with patients giving them medications to stop having a seizure from the detox.

Ellis died July 8 from heart failure complications at age 39. His family issued a statement attributing the heart failure to longtime alcohol and drug abuse.

The actor was born in Harvey, Ill., and lived in Alabama with his aunt and siblings before moving back to Chicago at age 15. After joining the Marines for a short period of time, he studied at Illinois State University and went on to get a degree from Juilliard School. In addition to his fan-favorite role as Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s “True Blood,” he also appeared in “The Soloist,” “The Butler,” “Elementary,” and “The Help.”

My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. http://variety.com/2017/tv/news/nelsan-ellis-funeral-dead-true-blood-1202496382/

HOW did AA trick you into ” JOINING ” something you didn’t need to join?

DId you get hoodwinked. Were you told ‘Take what you like and leave the rest” ?

But after 7 months then all hell broke lose that I needed to take that 1st part of the 1st step or I wouldn’t get the WHOLE program! Which part of their stupid program are “they” referring to?

I was 18- Young and Naive and never knew what made a cult a cult. I didnt want to drink. I was a good little AA soldier already. SO why did I need to confess that I was Powerless to make them happy?

I will make it my mission to shrink AA to 10 % of its current size.

TO get it out of Medicine The FAA, THE BON, Our courts and penal system and out of our mental wards in Real Hospitals.

Get AA out of rehab. Shut down all sober Living run by Steppers.

Put in its place real clinics which are held accountable to treat – offer medications etc- not prayer and 12 steps and a blue Book from 1935 .

Nothing worse then a true believer that has flipped. LOL

SAY NOT TO AA FOR DUI or any other god dang reason.

This ‘True Blood’ Actor’s Death Reveals a Hidden Danger of Addiction We Don’t Talk About

Actor Nelsan Ellis, who portrayed Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s “True Blood,” died from heart complications on Saturday, and now his family wants everyone to know why.

Ellis’ manager Emily Gerson Saines shared with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that his death came as a result of his attempt to quit alcohol.

I am so sorry to hear this news. They are saying he went to rehab many times and it failed him. Of course it did. True Blood has a stepper as one of its stars, a writer and I beleive one of the creators is a stepper. So can you imagine how they must have circled him and pushed him to their Failing rehabs like Betty Ford or Hazelton or where Mad Mens Star went.

My condolences to the family . SAD — so sad – must stop AA in Hollywood pushing AA horshit from 1935 .

Health Secretary Tom Price Favors ‘Faith Based’ Approach To Opioid Crisis

Health Secretary Tom Price Favors ‘Faith Based’ Approach To Opioid Crisis

Not medicine, God: U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price recommends faith in God as the solution to the current opioid crisis.

Price, a medical doctor, claims faith-based treatment is better than medication-assisted treatment when treating opioid addiction, despite a great deal of scientific evidence to the contrary.

Price, while touring communities that have been hit especially hard by painkiller and heroin overdoses, spoke out in favor of faith-based treatment programs while expressing disdain for science-based. medication-assisted treatment.

Charlotte Gazette-Mail reports:

Asked about drug treatment options, Price touted faith-based programs while showing less support for medication-assisted programs in which addicts are weaned off heroin with other opioids like Suboxone and methadone.

“If we’re just substituting one opioid for another, we’re not moving the dial much,” he said. “Folks need to be cured so they can be productive members of society and realize their dreams.”

Reporting on the story Mother Jones notes:

The secretary’s comments directly oppose literature from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, a division of HHS. “The goal of medication-assisted treatment is to recover from addiction,” reads “Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction: Facts for Families and Friends.” The literature goes on: “It does NOT replace one addictive drug with another. It provides a safe, controlled level of medication to overcome the use of a problem opioid.”

Business Insider elaborates, pointing out that the medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs Price rejects are the “gold standard” for overcoming opioid addiction:

Is AA a CULT? If yes why…

Its often discussed in heated debates about this name calling of AA.

I often defended AA when I was still in it . (1975-2011)

But sadly  now I see it as a quasi cult. A powerful INSTITUTION embedded in too many professional EAP programs ( The FAA, Pilots, Nurses, and Doctors) our Courts,  Probation and TV – aka Hollywood . Please tell me your thoughts.

What are some things you did to deprogram? Would like to hear a radio show about this?
