No need to head to the Middle East for gun violence- just go to your nearest High School- an American tragedy

I usually keep my posts to AA – exposing AA –  court ordering to AA and Sexual Harassment in AA. But something about this last school shooter just put me over the top. What is it about this one. Is it just a tipping point? Is this one just one too many? AM I tired of government officials asking for “soothing prayers and we are here for you” remarks, when they have just undone some good gun control measures put in place by President Obama.

I am heart sick for these children and families.

Create a one page bill and pass it quickly.

Forget banning the AR 15 for now. Just MAKE IT illegal for anyone with a violent past  or mentally unstable or on  psych medications or if family has called the police 20 times make it illegal for him to buy and posses a gun of any kind.

Keep the Crazies and gun away from each other.

ALSO  we need training for those answering 911 calls and calls to the FBI that ALL calls must be taken seriously.

Also was this kid ever going to AA , NA meetings ?

The Heroin-Addict Actress, The Interventionist and a Grieving Mother’s Court Fight: “She Didn’t Want to Die”

by Scott Johnson

Eight months after Warren Boyd, who helped the likes of Robert Downey Jr. and Courtney Love get clean, took on aspiring Beverly Hills actress Amy Breliant as a client, the young woman was dead. Now Boyd — along with ‘Star Wars’ actress Carrie Fisher — will face a civil lawsuit.

Two LAPD officers working the 15-ADAM-85 beat responded to a call about a suspicious death.

They came to a well-tended home in Studio City around noon on Sept. 21, 2010. In one of three bedrooms, they found Amy Breliant, an aspiring actress and model from Beverly Hills. She was slouched over on a bed wearing a blue shirt, a computer in her lap. Crime scene photos show a syringe and cellphone in one hand and a string of rosary beads around her neck. A tinfoil ball with an off-white substance, a spoon and a green lighter lay next to her. She had been dead for several hours. A roommate who had made the 911 call told the coroner he had been staying with Breliant for two months to “help her sober up and stay away from the drug scene.”

Amy was 21, beautiful, vivacious — and a heroin addict. Seven months earlier, she had begun another attempt at sobriety under the guidance of Warren Boyd, a self-described “extreme interventionist” who tied his public image to the successful recovery of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. A convicted felon and former addict himself, Boyd reportedly had helped Robert Downey Jr. get clean. Courtney Love later hired Boyd, and paparazzi caught the two coming and going from court hearings and rehab appointments. Such Hollywood royalty as Mel Gibson and Whitney Houston reportedly had been on his client roster. In 2008, A&E aired a fictionalized version of his life called The Cleaner, starring Benjamin Bratt. In a behind-the-scenes advertorial, actor Ashley Hamilton, another client, said Boyd’s “by any means necessary” approach was harsh but effective. “Warren’s great for addicts because he can convince you you need to get sober,” said Hamilton.

But Boyd’s unorthodox intervention techniques hadn’t saved Breliant. Amy’s mother, Gianna, believes Boyd exacerbated her daughter’s heroin addiction and contributed to her death. Court records and depositions from former employees suggest that Boyd may have crossed the line from “extreme interventionist” into something more dangerous.

For six years, Gianna has been chasing Boyd and his associates in court. Jake Schmidt, a private investigator who appeared on a few episodes of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, is named in the complaint, as is Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, who in 2010 made the bungalow adjacent to her Coldwater Canyon mansion available to Boyd and his clients, including Breliant, in return for $10,000 a week, according to court records.

Man Accused of raping multiple women he met in NA – 12 step meetings

Man accused of raping multiple women he met in recovery

LYNNWOOD — A Lynnwood man is accused of raping as many as 10 women he met through drug and alcohol recovery groups.

Police allege the man preyed on those who were vulnerable because of their addictions, including the newly sober. He reportedly offered to let women stay at his house when they were detoxing or worried about relapsing.

Several of the women say that before the attacks, they had told him about sexual violence they experienced in their pasts, and how that contributed to their substance abuse. Some said they relapsed after being raped again.

The man, 32, often led meetings for Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, according to the arrest report.

He was booked Wednesday into the Snohomish County Jail. He is being held on suspicion of one count of second-degree rape and three counts of third-degree rape.

Prosecutors Thursday said there could be more victims who have not yet come forward. A judge set bail at $250,000.

The women became aware of one another after someone posted about the suspect on Facebook, records show. Police were contacted Feb. 27.

One woman said the man often was asked to speak at AA meetings. She said he “appeared to be very spiritual and had an impressive story of sobriety.” In spring 2014, he made sexual advances and ignored her when she told him to stop, she said.

Another woman said the suspect admitted to her that he’d raped her in September when she was passed out from heroin and pills. She also alleged that he raped her again in January and February, and that she had looked for reasons to blame herself for what happened. She said the suspect told her she had “sex issues” because she didn’t enjoy what he did.

A third woman made clear to police that AA recommends newly sober women be paired with female mentors. Despite that recommendation, the suspect often insisted on helping women new to the group, she said. She said that the suspect had tried to rape her but was dissuaded because she carries a firearm.

A fourth woman said she and the suspect had met through AA when she was a minor. They dated and later broke up. In September, she relapsed and went to his house for support, she said. She said he tried to rape her but she escaped when she asked to go outside to smoke a cigarette.

A fifth women told detectives she was raped by the suspect but she was worried that people in her life would find out if she made a report.

Police went to the man’s house Wednesday morning. He claimed the allegations were retribution for him stealing another man’s girlfriend.

At least three of the women have said he texted them or sent them Facebook messages apologizing after the assaults. Some of those messages have been shared with police.

In one message, a woman texted the man, “I said ‘no’ several times and you never stopped. I was hurting. I needed a friend. You made me feel like an (expletive) object.”

His alleged response was: “Like I said I owe you an amends if you are willing to here(sic) it.”

Help and support

#TIMESUP campaign and #METOO against sexual harassmnet will include 12 step recovery groups? Or will they be left anonymously hidden Still?

In light of the Harvey Weinstein Scandal, The #METOO and now #TIMESUP Campaign we are hoping that the voices of women and men who have been victimized in AA, NA, Rehabs and Sober Living will NO LONGER BE LEFT in Silence for Sexual misconduct and Crimes of a Sexual Nature.

We were interviewed by VICE a few months back. This was a huge break through. It felt like a miracle. But it is not. We are like the last house on the block.  But we are not!

AN Ex stepper’s take on AA— from FACEBOOK – Leaving AA or any 12 step group

This is posted here with the permission of the writer herself.

Post written by Carrie Lee

 

So after a year of sporadically making my way through the Orange Papers and being involved here on this forum here’s my take on what’s going on with AA:

1. The premise and dominant philosophies of AA came from the Oxford Groups – a puritanical fundamentalist Christian group started by a nazi sympathiser
2. The program, a mish-mash of poor philosophy and random spirituality, was cobbled together through the ‘inspiration’ of a megalomaniac, womanising, momentarily-physically-sober madman with absolutely no supportive evidence that it could be relevant to alcoholics except the backing of one doctor who was apparently impressed with the idea of peer support (wow, what a concept). The god-stuff was entirely erroneous.
3. The program was given credibility when they lobbied the AMA to call alcoholism a disease so it would be covered by insurance …and so the now billion dollar D&A industry was born to perpetuate the myth
4. The program has always had a heavy confessional component that keeps people focused on their negatives, their self-esteem low and their minds therefore malleable
5. This allows for an environment in which control-freaks and predators can thrive and prey on the vulnerable
6. The program has no greater success rate than the percentage of people giving up naturally in any given year. Further, there are many components of both the program itself and the way people apply it that actively work against a person’s sobriety and well-being from simple ideas like don’t get a partner or job when both are proven to be tremendously helpful to people wishing to get sober, to the harmful such as “it’s a disease, you are powerless and will need us forever”, to the seriously dangerous like “don’t take your meds”
7. While you could forgive it for not being effective, it’s hard to forgive the serious harm done through sexual abuse, mental manipulation, guilt-tripping and humiliation that lead to suicides, binge drinking, premature death, loss of family, friends and support structures and at the very least, many lost years and opportunities
8. The program will never be altered in light of new evidence and proven current support mechanisms.

What’s not to like eh??!?!?!?!?!
