Professionals tout benefits of AA program at meeting

"Don't get me wrong, if people opt into AA and it helps them, that is good. I'm not knocking the program. I wouldn't choose it because I'd be compelled to lie and I avoid cops, judges, jailers and the like. Not my sort of thing."

If one was/is in AA no one or nothing is compelling one to lie to authorities.

"There is a certain incestuous pathology inherent in the recovery industry, strife with conflict of interest. This is an industry in serious need of an overhaul."

Agreed. Fewer state cuts would be great.

From @Glenn Reed "these people folks are lacking in expertise on this subject."

; a judge for example is someone lacking expertise on this? Please explain.

@Centerville; "not ready" likely meaning some offenders' crimes reflect problems untreatable by AA.
