Please sign this petition about nurses being extorted into AA. The case I’m familiar with is a nurse who was also an Iraq veteran, traumatized, and then mandated to AA. Put an end to The Pennsylvania Nurse Peer Assistance Program (PNAP)
You might be surprised to learn that 12-step religious coercion is actually a very common contractual extortion method.
Veterans with trauma, PTSD, might find themselves forced into a program telling them to contemplate their defective character, selfishness, powerlessness, dishonesty, etc. It seems very wrong to me.
This Invitational Intervention (ARISE) basically attempts to solve the treatment industry’s problem of families not being comfortable with the coercion and civil liberties violations of a traditional Johnson intervention (to get more people into treatment which is $$$), instead of the real problem: that the expensive ‘religious’ treatment doesn’t work and is often counterproductive and deeply insulting to people who are not actually pathological liars.
