Treatment as usual (TAU) in the 12 step cult religion world of the $35 billion rehabilitation business does not want you to get well. They want you to repeat your substantial investment in their very low cost cult religion tax-free business as many times as possible during the course of your life and the life of your family members… since addiction is a family disease according to 12 step cult propaganda even though addiction is not a disease at all. This is simply the unadulterated, undeniable, indesputible truth.
April Wilson Smith, MPH, a 1996 graduate of Yale University currently pursuing her PhD in Population Health at Thomas Jefferson University in the US city Philadelphia in the state of Pennsylvania, has written the short piece linked below which outlines how and why your rehab facility cannot and will not make the changes necessary to treat you and your trauma with effective modalities. Why? Implementing the changes from a shame-based 12 step cult religion “free” modality to a “trauma-informed culture” is not only out of their budget, it would mean you could get help and move on with your life. Moving on with your life is not allowed in the 12 step cult culture and these rehab owners are not about to spend the money on modalities that will cut their bottom line. After all, they’ve got multiple mortgages to pay!
Please click on the link below to access April’s piece. She wisely refrains from outright calling the 12 step cult religion to the mat, since doing so makes editors wince due to the 12 step cult disciple backlash they know will be forthcoming. I, thankfully, do not have such censorship restrictions here on my blog.
