Pacific Health System Has to Pay 2.3 Million to Boys Who Were Molested By 12 Step AA Sponsor Volunteer

$2.3M to victims in rehab sex abuse suit

By Kristina Davis JUNE 27 2014

 — A San Diego jury awarded nearly $2.3 million this week to two boys who were sexually abused by a volunteer at a National City rehabilitation clinic.

Wednesday’s verdict ended a 15-day trial against Pacific Health System, which operates an outpatient facility treating substance abuse and mental illness.

The boys were 13 when they were victimized by Robert Poizner, a volunteer and mentor who was tasked with driving the patients to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Instead, he took them to his apartment, molesting them and providing them with drugs for a roughly yearlong period, according to the 2011 complaint.

The abuse also occurred during overnight hotel and apartment stays, the suit says.

Poizner, 44, was convicted of 24 counts of sex abuse against children. He is serving a sentence of 82 years to life in prison.

The lawsuit alleges that Pacific Health put Poizner in a position of power despite his own history of substance abuse and previous criminal convictions. The victims were particularly vulnerable, the lawsuit says, because the boys suffered from psychological problems along with substance abuse.

The jury deliberated for two and a half days before reaching a $6.5 million verdict, but also found that Poizner and, to a much lesser degree, one of the boys’ parents shared some of the responsibility for the conduct, thus reducing the amount Pacific Health owed. The jury found that Pacific Health owed one boy $975,000 in damages and the other $1.3 million.

“We are hoping outcomes with civil remedies for the victims force these facilities to do extensive background checks and more efficient supervision on their volunteers,” the boys’ attorney, Stephen Estey, said in a statement.

Pacific Health’s attorney, Douglas Guy, said Friday that it was premature to comment on the verdict.


Man Guilty of Child Porn Possession of Girl Being Raped by Her Father Attends Narcotics Anonymous Meetings

Man guilty of possession of child pornography attends Narcotics Anonymous after arrest. These are some of the sick twisted people that sit next to you in a 12 step meeting.

A St. Charles man was ordered Wednesday to pay restitution to a child pornography victim, videos of whom are among the most downloaded worldwide.

It was part of the sentence for Gary L. Harris, 53, who pleaded guilty in March to aggravated possession of child pornography of a victim under age 13, and to possession of marijuana.

 Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Nick Gaeke said it was the first time he has sought restitution in such a case, and that he thought it might be the first time it’s been attempted in Kane County circuit court.

Harris will have to pay $5,000 to the victim, who was featured in several of the videos police found on his laptop computer and a DVD in 2012. Circuit Judge Karen Simpson also sentenced him to sex-offender probation for six years. Gaeke requested six years in prison. Harris could have been sentenced to as many as 14 years in prison.

The victim, who lives on the West Coast, was raped by her father repeatedly between 2000 and 2001, when she was 10 and 11, according to news reports. He videotaped the sessions and put them on the Internet. Her father pleaded guilty to production of child pornography and transporting a minor across state lines for sexual purposes in federal court in 2008, and he is serving a 50-year prison sentence. He also pleaded guilty to state charges of rape of a child.

The victim has spoken publicly about the effect of child pornography on victims, including the helplessness she feels knowing the videos are still being distributed and watched. She has sought restitution in federal and state courts, and her situation was cited in a Supreme Court case about the liability of child-porn viewers to pay restitution.

“Hundreds of people nationwide have been prosecuted for disseminating the images and videos of this victim,” Gaeke said after the sentencing.

Gaeke said the victim has bills for psychological and psychiatric counseling of at least $10,000 a year. He asked for $5,000, since evidence indicated Harris owned the pornography for about six months.

According to St. Charles police detective Andrew Lamela, Harris downloaded files off a peer-to-peer file-sharing site to which he subscribed. Police found 25 videos on the laptop computer and five others on a desktop computer. They also found 300 thumbnail images of child pornography leftover from deleted files, he said.

After Harris pleaded guilty in March, Gaeke asked St. Charles police to submit the videos to a child sexual exploitation unit of the federal National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The center identified at least 11 victims.

Harris’ attorney, Kathleen Colton, argued against restitution, saying he couldn’t have caused the victim harm because her exploitation happened years before he was arrested. There was no evidence he knew the victim or that she was being harmed, she said.

Gaeke argued ordering restitution would “impress upon offenders that child pornography, even simple possession, affects child victims.”

Harris began sex offender counseling in January and has been attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings, according to a court-ordered pre-sentence investigation report. In counseling, he said, “I have learned there are victims. To them I also apologize.”

Simpson said: “The statement is really, it’s very moving and it brings home to myself the seriousness of this offense.”

The judge likened child pornography distribution to a pyramid scheme: “Some real live human beings are raping these children” on the videos, which are then promoted via the Internet and downloaded by voyeurs. She noted that the victim has been stalked and that people still seek her out.

She also said not enough attention is paid to the matter.

“It winds up being a paragraph maybe in the local paper, when really it (the news) ought to be posted online, maybe on YouTube,” Simpson said.

It is About Time Alcoholics Anonymous is Challenged

AA should’ve been challenged and quashed before it got off the ground! Better late than never though.

It’s Time We Challenged Alcoholics Anonymous


By John Johnson,  Newser Staff Posted Feb 11, 2014

(NEWSER) – A slew of new books is challenging the 75-year “hegemony” of Alcoholics Anonymous, and Maia Szalavitz at Pacific Standard thinks it’s about time. Over the decades, it’s become nearly an accepted truth in this country that AA is the one and only path to sobriety. And sure, the 12-step program that demands participants surrender to a “higher power” is the right path for some, but it is most definitely not the right path for everyone. “For what other medical condition does 90 percent of the treatment consist of meetings and prayer?” asks Szalavitz. Daytona AA and NA meetings Holly Hill Florida.

Indeed, one of the problems with AA’s “non-medical and moralistic” approach “is that addiction continues to be seen by many people as a moral failing rather than a disease.” Another? One of the biggest studies of recovery found that the vast majority of addicts kick their habit “without any treatment—professional or self-help—regardless of whether the drug involved is alcohol, crack, methamphetamine, heroin, or cigarettes,” writes Szalavitz. That’s something our booming rehab culture isn’t eager to spread around. Click for the full column, which includes a list of the recent books taking on AA. NA Daytona Beach.

Man in toddler slapping case to be sentenced

ATLANTA (AP) — A man who admitted to having slapped a crying toddler on an Atlanta-bound flight is set to appear in court Monday for sentencing.

Joe Rickey Hundley pleaded guilty in October after reaching a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. Hundley used a racial slur to refer to the 19-month-old boy and then hit him under the right eye as the flight from Minneapolis began its descent to the Atlanta airport, authorities have said.

The misdemeanor simple assault charge carries a possible prison sentence of up to a year and a fine of up to $100,000. Prosecutors have recommended a sentence of six months in prison, but Hundley reserved his right to argue for a lower sentence. Prosecutors are not recommending any specific fine.

The agreement also requires Hundley to enter a drug or alcohol treatment program and attend anger management classes.

Author Gabrielle Glaser OP-ED Piece ‘Cold Turkey Isn’t the Only Route’

Here is a great Op-Ed piece by Gabrielle Glaser! We are off to a great 2014 already!


Cold Turkey Isn’t the Only Route

Published: January 1, 2014 

THIS New Year’s, a good number of those who struggle to control their drinking will resolve to abstain from alcohol. No halfway measures. Quitting is the only way.

The cold-turkey approach is deeply rooted in the United States, embraced by doctors, the multibillion-dollar treatment industry and popular culture. For nearly 80 years, our approach to drinking problems has been inspired by the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Developed in the 1930s by men who were “chronic inebriates,” the A.A. program offers a single path to recovery: abstinence, surrendering one’s ego and accepting one’s “powerlessness” over alcohol.

But it’s not the only way to change your drinking habits.

Bankole Johnson, an alcohol researcher and consultant to pharmaceutical companies who is also the chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, puts it this way: “We are wedded to the abstinence model as the goal, despite evidence that there can be many successful outcomes.” Continue reading

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous a Gathering Place for Predators by Amber Weinacht Yahoo Contributer

So glad this excellent article writes about the 12 step organizations of AA and NA.

A Gathering Place for Predators

Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous

What if, at the lowest time in your life, those who are supposed to help you, prey on you? It happens every day, in countless AA and NA rooms across the world. The story has the same lame routine and ring to it every time. The new, freshly sober gal comes to a meeting, hoping for clarity and a new way of life, and before you know it, there’s a man schmoozing her up, trying to get on her good side, with more than just good intentions at hand. This has been termed “13th stepping” and most women new to the program have no idea what 13th stepping even is. The one thing most freshly sobered up AA and NA patrons usually don’t count on is meeting other people who are more sick than themselves. They come in with rose colored glasses on, ready to see the world with new eyes and never figure that the problems they might encounter in the rooms themselves may be as bad or worse than the problems they already have. The question is, why don’t the old-timers and those who have been around the program for a while help these women? Better yet, why doesn’t the World Board in both programs set forth clear rules on this issue?  AA and NA Daytona Meetings in Holly Hill, Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach.Those within the walls of AA and NA include those that want to be sober and are there of their own free will, those that aren’t sure if they even have a problem but want to check out a meeting or two, those ordered to attend by judges in cases such as drunk driving, and then there are those who have to come as part of a treatment program for other problems such as sexual crimes or other felonies they have committed. There are countless felons in AA, who by all standards are not all bad, but there are those who have committed sexual abuse, there those that have tried to kill their wives and girlfriends, those who have raped, and pedophiles. The list goes on and on. Perhaps judges in criminal courtrooms should stop ordering those who have committed sexual offenses into these programs and instead insist that they get individual counseling or inpatient treatment. Sadly, that wouldn’t entirely solve the problem even if such orders were issued however, because once those with sexual addictions figure out that meetings are a place to meet vulnerable women, they keep going back, even after court ordered sanctions have ended.Frequently in the rooms, people say, “Keep your own side of the street clean, and take your own inventory.” What this means essentially is don’t worry about what others are doing. It is none of your concern. This is precisely the response that one newcomer got from from the World Board of NA after calling to call attention to a man with seventeen years of sobriety that made 13th stepping a regular habit. “What this man does is single out the newcomers. He’s around fifty years old and keeps an eye open for any fresh meat that comes through the doors. Doesn’t matter their age. They could be his age, or even under 18. If they look good to him, he pounces. He got to me when I had about thirty days sober. What these guys do is take women like me who have to leave everything behind in order to start a new life, and they sort of brainwash us I guess, make us feel like we can depend on someone and that all is not lost. What eventually ends up happening is that these girls and women build their foundation upon him and other men like him, and eventually they find out that not only is he lying to her, he’s screwing just about every other chick in the room. I’ve talked to women who wanted to kill themselves over this guy, and let me be real clear about this, it’s not just the guy that makes them feel this way. It’s the head game. These women are already at their lowest and desperately just need to feel like someone cares and we all know that’s human nature. This one man in particular is known on a national level in NA and has even gone as far as to pick up a sponsor on the World Board. I have no doubt that was intentional. He serves on state boards in Nebraska and attends national conferences where he is invited to speak often. Everyone knows about him, and when I called the World Board to report him and the damage he was causing, I was essentially told to go call someone who cares, that they don’t take anyone’s inventory. This isn’t a joke. The guy has something like 14 felonies, is one of the most manipulative men I’ve ever met and people just laugh it off while high-fiving him for being the guy that has three girlfriends in every state in the U.S. Meanwhile women keep relapsing over it. Some have relapsed over and over because he just doesn’t stop. This one guy and his actions have the potential to kill several, and he’s only one of hundreds, if not thousands who are lurking,” said one anonymous NA member. Continue reading
