    In that inappropriate joke of a rehab that i got forced into (manipulation anyone?) some girl said "you've had weight loss surgery, you must be a food addict." Wut!? That's quite the leap of logic.
    I reckon it's just an example of the 12 step thing gone awry. As in without knowing ANYTHING about a person, assumptions are made that everyone is addicted to something and that a social activity with a religious bent will fix everything. um...nope.
    My opinion, for what it's worth is that people find like company in all sorts of things....church, sports teams, AA...what have you. Even subtracting the prayer aspect, I rather think that forcing me to attend a 12 step function is akin to forcing me to be on a football team. I don't play the game, i don't understand the game and I hate the loud, crowded noisy atmosphere. I'm bored and would rather be doing almost anything else. So extending this logic, a condition for my state issued license is to engage in a useless activity that i don't understand and don't want to.
    I feel your irritation...I'd much rather read a good Dr. Seuss book than the bible or any of that 12 step dribble...anyway...it is the game to play to keep a license worked so hard for...Kafka only gets it at this point...someday perhaps the world will be rid of religion and especially the travesty called the 12 steps...until then many more human beings will suffer and even more will choose not to use their own frontal lobes

    Just my humble opinion...be very careful of the so-called "professionals programs." Too often, there is little difference (other than higher cost and the significantly lower likelihood that your insurance will pay for it) than any other inpatient program. Besides, if you are in need of inpatient treatment, it is YOU that needs the assistance, not your RN. Most peer-type programs will steer you towards these things because someone, somewhere is making serious bank off of people in need of help, who just happen to hold a license of some sort. I have seen a number of programs, that if not for their self-titled "professionals program" would not even be in business. And that my friend is the key word...business. Recovery, sadly, has become a business. There are many qualified nurses that have been run out of the profession simply for lack of money to pay for the treatment for what in non-licensed professions constitutes an illness, but for the licensed ones is a stigma and crime that must be punished.
    **steps down off of soapbox and goes to brush teeth to get the bitter taste out of my mouth......**

    Truthfully, i am no longer that bitter. i am just sad for the people that are being subjected to the same kind of abuse i was.....like I said, only an opinion....
    Wow...I heard that! To the OP....be ready to spend incomprehensible anounts of your hard earned money for the oudated modality known and propagated as AA....sadly that's really all the recovery/industrial complex does...hang in there...this does not define who you truly are! Bitter??? For myself...it waxes and wains...

    Sadly...where as an outdated paradigm based on religious mumbo jumbo rules the day and the powers that be are lazy at best to offer anything in the face of irefutable "scientific" evidence, we are in effect stuck to "do time"

    Under the guise of "protecting the public" and "helping medical professionals" it's all about
    $$$$$$$$$...P testing is a billion dollar industry...everything else is moot.
