  • Can you guys seperate these paragraph (events) a little more? They are hard to read, look like one big paragraph! Thanks! maybe highlight them or uppercase the events?

  • We appreciate the feedback. We are going to take care of that. Thank you.

  • “Alcoholics Anonymous which has proven to be the most successful ongoing process in supporting recovery for the addict”

    Proven? Where? By who? In every randomized longitudinal controlled study AA has been found lacking.

    # Dr. Jeffrey Brandsma found that A.A. indoctrination greatly increased the rate of binge drinking in alcoholics.
    # Dr. Keith Ditman found that A.A. involvement increased the rate of re-arrests for public drunkenness in a group of street drunks.
    # Dr. Diana Walsh found that A.A. just messed up a lot of alcoholics and made them require more expensive hospitalization later on.
    # In England, a British team of researchers, Drs. Orford and Edwards, et. al., found that just having a doctor speak to alcoholics for a single hour, telling them to quit drinking or they were going to die, was just as effective as a whole year of A.A.-based “treatment”.
    # The most damning test of all was done by one of the leaders of A.A., Doctor and Professor George E. Vaillant, who is also just about the biggest A.A. booster in the world. He just loves A.A. and thinks that everybody should get shoved into it. Doctor George E. Vaillant is also a Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, and he is also a member of the Board of Trustees of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc.. Vaillant clearly demonstrated that A.A. treatment kills patients. For eight years, his A.A.-based treatment program had the highest death rate of any kind of alcoholism treatment that he studied. Vaillant also candidly admitted that the A.A.-based treatment program had a zero-percent success rate.

  • Teaching people that they are powerless over alcohol or drugs as the 12 steps do leads to very sever, sometimes deadly, relapses. Those in non 12 step recovery are better prepared to stop drinking earlier and with less harm to themselves and others. The 12 steps are nothing but magical thinking that does harm to many. Just because AA is found everywhere doesn’t mean it’s healthy. McDonalds is also found everywhere and is not healthy either. AA arrogantly does absolutely nothing to update its concept of alcoholism as science learns more about it all the time. It therefore does a grave disservice to its adherents.

  • Alcoholics Anonymous, “which has proven to be the most successful ongoing process in supporting recovery for the addict” –totally untrue! Also, potential meeting goers need to be warned that many, many criminals, some with a history of violence, are sentenced to go to AA meetings. The reason AA has become popular is media hype, a misunderstanding of what the ‘program’ is all about (clue: The courts have deemed it religious in nature), and the fact that until about 20 years ago there wasn’t much else available in the way of free support groups.

  • the only thing worse than paying for treatment yourself is owing someone for treatment. then they obligate you to 12 step meetings where they teach you it’s ok to relapse as long as you keep coming back. vicious cycle that ensures clientele for the rehabs. sad. aa is worthless IMHO.
