What Could Go Wrong?
« on: December 02, 2018, 01:30:47 PM »
All About Receiving Cash has enjoyed a warm and supportive relationship with the American Society of Addictions Medicine.  As far back as 1993, ASAM's Ray Baker was working with perpetually conflicted Kon shill Diane Mirosh to defraud the taxpayers of Alberta on behalf of AARC:

"Dr. Ray Baker, B.Sc., M.D., CCFP, Certified in Addiction Medicine, Director AMIR, University of British Columbia, in a letter to Diane Mirosh dated August 30, 1993. “I am writing to support a program in Alberta which may very well be one of the best models of treatment of substance use disorders in this whole country.  The program is AARC…I believe that this type of care is both cost effective and treatment effective, while at the same time achieving objectives sought after during this process of health care reform in our country, namely: early prevention and intervention in ambulatory patients by an interdisciplinary team offering community based care."

Now there are a couple of funny things about this sales pitch.  Firstly, the AARC model was simply a pared-down Seed /Straight/Kids thought reform program, right down to the Peer Counselors, Board members, the lobby group PRIDE and the imposter Dean Vause.  Secondly, the program had only been operating for a few months, with no evidence whatsoever to evaluate it's effectiveness.  At that time the Wiz hadn't even finished his "what I did last summer" story for Union to get his special PhD paper.

Fast forward to 2009, and All About Receiving Cash is looking for guidance in their cover-up strategy to Dr. Raju Hajela, also a fellow of ASAM:
"John Lojek to interview Patton or develop interview strategy Talk to Dr. Goretsky, Peter, Natalie about the study. Dr. Hajela?"

Word is that AARC was paying to send clients down to George Talbott's torture facility in Atlanta.  Talbott was the founder of ASAM.  Certainly All About Receiving Cash shares the curiously high suicide rate of former subjects with Dr. Talbott's operations.
"Many observers have noted the take-no-prisoners approach of Talbott and his staff (including his daughter-in-law, Dr. Martha Morrison, who attempted suicide when she entered Talbott's program but who survived after the belt she used broke!).
...In May, 1999, just after Talbott stepped down as president of ASAM, a jury awarded Dr. Leonard Masters, of Jacksonville Florida, a judgment of $1.3 million against Talbott, his daughter-in-law Morrison, and other Talbott associates for malpractice, fraud, and false imprisonment, based on Masters' stay with Talbott in 1994."

ASAM provids the pseudoscientific "addictions" nonsense to the private Palix initiative to propagandize Albertans with ASAM's phoney "Disease Model".

What in the world could possibly lead any informed person in this province to follow the lead of the Empire's failed drug warriors?

The answer seems to be 500 000 people with previous "substance use disorder" evidence who can be treated as life-long sufferers of a chronic disease in rehab programs and who can be subjected to lucrative tests.

"AARC will go on serving youth and families as long as it will be needed, if it keeps open to God for inspiration" Dr. F. Dean Vause Executive Director

"...based on an understanding that addiction is a chronic relapsing disease that makes people more vulnerable to overdose after they've been in treatment."  Zontar?
