This is a great new show created by Lisa Rubin graduate of Columbia Film School. When Jean played by Naomi Watts sends her young client with a drug problem to NA meetings ( 90 meetings in 90 days) my skin chilled. Sad that these creative story tellers still sell the same narrative.
Very sexy intelligent show about a married women with a transgender issued 7 year old child married to Lawyer, Billy Crudup in NYC. Our lady Naomi Watts is a Therapist who lies constantly to those around her. Yet one does care about her. Brenda Vacarro also stars. The 12 step thread is annoying and I wished one new show will come along that will crack that mold from 1935 and promote Harm Reduction with Drug addicts and either Smart recovery or MM or the use of Naltrexone with alcohol abuse .
Hi everyone. I will be taking a badly needed break from blogging and FACEBOOK social media for a couple of months. I need to focus on a project I am working on that will continue to expose AA, but will include exposing criminal activity in Rehab, Sober Living and extortion of Pilots, Nurses and Doctors. I need to focus . I also need a vacation !!! LOL
I’m also tired – not physically – but I do see how big this AA beast is in our culture – courts- mental health and Entertainment. Its just not right, whats going on.
If you have been harmed please bring a friend/family member and go to the police. Make Written complaints and call NY GSO. Write to your congressman and or local politician or reporter about how you were harmed by AA.
Fee free to Email me at email@example.com. I will get back to you when I resume blogging unless you have been harmed criminally or your civil rights have been broken please feel free to write to me.
If Crimes and Fraud are committed with Sober Living and Rehab – Please write your story and situation down and go to the FBI or JUSTICE Department. They already know the deal with these two hatter AA members . They have taken down 3 huge rings already in California, Florida and New Jersey .
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?

The film that tells the truth about the most revered self-help group on the planet. AA- ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, promoted as the wonder of this century by ROCKEFELLER, NEUT GINGRICH, DICK VAN DYKE, ELTON JOHN, EDIE FALCO, Senator Hughes, Chuck Lorre, Martin Sheen and many more.
Little did I know how deep the rabbit hole went when I started making the film in May of 2011. It was Christine and Saundra Cass’s murder in Hawaii that did it for me. Learning about Karla Brada’s murder put the nails in the coffin as well.
But when I learned about how Pilots, Nurses, and Doctors are extorted to attend in such an insane way …I could not believe my ears or eyes as I read their contracts. This could be another whole film on CNN , FRONTLINE or 60 Minutes – but I digress.
The latest News about Corrupt Sober Living Houses, (Chris Bathum featured on ABC 20/20 recently) fraud in Rehabs and how PROP 36 sends all the diversion folks to a SOBER LIVING, drug tests all clients and makes everyone follow the 1936 -12 step Prohibition WAYS of NO ALCOHOL , “no nothing” kinda mentality. YIKES !!!
Interesting note that Major Insurance is paying for The Sober Living sham, through a thing called IOP’s and expensive Drug Testing. Who owns the drug testing COMPANY you may ask? I find myself digging, again, down another rabbit hole. But, that’s another film. There is one pilot who I interviewed in this film. He was afraid to be seen.
Here is the link to rent or buy the film.
There has been alot of coverage of this convicted rapist, Brock Turner. I was very sorry to hear the Judge only gave him 6 months. As we have heard many times, young black men have been sentenced to 10 years and have served that time for possession of a small amount of drugs. SO how does this happen? What kind of world are we living in?
I am so sorry for this young victim. She had alot of courage. I think that AA and its ideology have played a part in this. DID he use the I’m have a drinking card as part of his testimony or excuse. EVEN if he didn’t, AA has gotten into TV, FILM our Courts for the past 40 years in such a way that people think that just by standing up and confessing their sins they are forgiven. Many are using Drug court and ” oh I am an alcoholic” to get out of jail and go to rehab or AA meetings. 40 years ago this would not happen.
There was an episode on THE NICK ( takes place 1903 in the KNICKERBOCKER HOSPITAL in NYC) Where one of the characters DAD was an evangelical minister. They did that back them. Get up and confessed. The Oxford groups did this. AA was stolen from this cult and Bill got sober through those groups. I will do some digging to see what was said and if they are using the “drug Court Card to get him off. ”
(CNN)Widespread outrage has erupted over a California judge’s decision to give a former Stanford University swimmer a six-month jail sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. Critics are blasting the decision as far too lenient.
Prosecutors had asked that Brock Turner be sentenced to six years in prison for the January 2015 assault.The controversial sentence was followed by the release of two dueling letters to the judge about the case that have been widely shared and sparked further outcry: one from the victim, who described her ordeal in 12 searing pages; and another from Turner’s father, who dismissed his son’s crime as “20 minutes of action.”Turner, 20, was convicted in March of the intent to commit rape of an intoxicated/unconscious person, penetration of an intoxicated person and penetration of an unconscious person.Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky said on Thursday that Turner’s age and lack of criminal history made him feel that imposing a six-month jail sentence with probation was appropriate. Turner also has to register as a sex offender.
“A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him,” Persky said. “I think he will not be a danger to others.”
HI and Welcome ! There has been a real surge in FACEBOOK activity with ex AA members. Please join us if you want on FACEBOOK in the deprogramming page. I know some dont want to let their identity be known so we are keeping this blog going.
It is a different kind of communication.
No more hiding the truth about AA and NA anymore !
