Twelve Step Coercion and ineffective faith healing (with drugs!)
I checked into the Willough in Naples, FL on August 28, 2012, my birthday. I finished reading the big book and attended all scheduled meetings. A typical day at the Willough consisted of sitting in a classroom in a modified 7-11 store and filling out pamphlets. We were seldom given time with medical staff and counselors. We were told to conduct AA meetings in the evenings.
These meetings were self proctored. There was a tech who would occasionally come in and make sure we were reading the literature. I found this therapy completely ineffective.
On one evening at the Willough, I decided to take a nap during the meeting hour. I was told to attend the evening AA meeting or I would be written up because: “If you do not attend, we cannot bill your insurance” There was active prescription trading among the patients and several were sent away or arrested after failing drug tests and trading suboxone. I recall two patients who were caught having sex in the laundry room of the renovated 1950’s hotel we called home during our incarceration.
I felt like an animal. We all felt like caged animals. During lunch hour, a truck delivered a rather unimpressive array of lunch meat sandwiches. For recreation therapy we bounced a beach ball back and forth.
I graduated and received my Willough AA medallion. I was told to immediately start a 90 in 90 as the prior meetings I had attended did not count.
