Also Annee you never 'recover' or graduate you are an addict etc for the rest of your life.


"Graduate" was in quotes for a reason.

My brother does support that at some point it is necessary to leave the program and become independent from it.

Whether he continues to have a sponsor I don't know.

AA is generally considered these days to be religious, so a court can't order someone to attend. They can order a person to attend a rehab program if alternatives are available but it's a First Amendment violation to order someone into a program that requires they accept a God they don't believe in. Here's some case law on it

Many churches sponsor AA groups.

But, it was designed for anyone. Read what the founder says.

What a program was originally designed for and how it's used today are often very different things.

Can't argue that.

But, it is an adaptable program.
