I do not speak for any of those involved as a whole, but having attended the event, I do not believe that quote necessarily ties in with the statement that precedes it. One of the professionals that spoke indicated that there was a recent court decision that (here is some info: http://www.practicalrecovery.com/pr/c...) judges are not permitted to order offenders to 12 step meetings. Community corrections officers and addiction counselors can order 12 step meetings to meet the requirements of probation/parole or to complete treatment.
The statement regarding people not being ready was, I believe, made as a more general statement about people that stand in her courtroom -- though I do not want to speak for the judge.
I hope that helps give you some better understanding.
