Rational Recovery's "Pass-It-On" Video
Witness a public official
(Dr. James Kohler,
of Alcohol and Drug Programs, standing in picture) state that permanent
abstinence (quitting) within the RGM/ATI
is "not gonna happen" in fully remastered audio and video!
This is the smoking gun that the RGM/ATI will NEVER show
the world, much less any addicted person who wants to
learn how to quit. An official for the system,
caught on video, comes clean as to why there is no success rate cited within
addiction treatment programs. Indeed, the system itself is proven unequivocally
to be a pro-addiction scam since it states that
quitting is "not gonna happen" within it!
And these are taxpayers' and insurance companies' dollars at work, YOUR
MONEY, funding this fraud.
The footage documents
Dr. James Kohler, the director of the
of Alcohol and Drug Programs, claiming that there are
ZERO abstinent outcomes expected from addiction treatment services.
The footage to create this short clip was sold to Rational Recovery and filmed
by the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs. You won't believe
what you see!

QUESTIONER: Why doesn't the Caldata study -- which is for the treatment
for drugs and alcohol, right?
QUESTIONER: Why doesn't it cite any figures about a success rate with
the actual treatment of alcohol or drugs? What would you consider a success?
KOHLER: Uh, abstinence.
QUESTIONER: For how long?
KOHLER: Permanent. Not gonna happen.
QUESTIONER: Not gonna happen?
KOHLER: Not gonna happen. Because if you look for someone who is diabetic,
is there a cure for diabetes? No, it's maintenance for a disease that will
always be with you.
QUESTIONER: You mean that...
KOHLER: So, you can expect someone with a chemical dependency problem
will have slips at some time. We tell them that they have an incurable lifelong
disease. That abstinence is a choice that they make one day at a time. Okay?
KOHLER: And our expectation is that, yes, that they stay clean and
sober. But the reality is that that's not gonna happen.
Using my expertise I captured the video from Rational Recovery's
"Rational Recovery Defends the Untreatables" DVD
(available for purchase from the
Recovery bookstore). And, for the sake of a clearer audiovisual presentation,
I remastered the audio so that there is no background noise (I didn't bother
to remove the bumping of the microphone, though). I then dumped the results
into an MPEG1 VCD file for use as a master and also created a smaller
reduced-bandwidth XviD/Lame-encoded downloadable video (the latter can fit
on a formatted 1.44MB floppy). The latter is lower in quality not due to
the codecs used (XviD and
are killer open-source codecs) but because I deliberately kept the bandwidth
small so that the .AVI file would fit on a single floppy.
The video can be downloaded free of charge. Rational Recovery encourages
the distribution of this video so feel free to download and "Pass-It-On"
to others from E-mail to filesharing. Since this
is a higher quality video release than what's on
Recovery's Welcome Page this will get far more play by fellow concerned
