AADP Best Treatment or Cash Cow?

The Blogmeister was aware of this story, but was not going to post on it.  It seemed like a personnel issue at first and frankly posting would just be in bad taste.  However, more information is available from this Fort Wayne Journal Gazette editorial that appears to highlight more problems than just personnel.

Background:  Last week Alcohol Abuse Deterrent Program (AADP) head Terry Yeiter was asked to step down by his board.  It was thought there was some mismanagement of the medication at the program sites.  In fact, it appeared there was, as an audit showed more medication on hand than was supposed to be there.

First, the Blogmeister wonders if anyone contacted the Drug Enforcement Agency about this?  More history from the editorial;

“AADP was established to provide an aversion-therapy alternative to incarceration for repeat drunken-driving offenders. Court-ordered participants take Antabuse, the brand name for disulfiram, which blocks the body’s ability to process alcohol and causes discomfort or illness when taken in combination with alcohol. Last year, AADP administered Antabuse or breath tests to about 1,500 people a week. Offenders are required to pay for treatment.”

Second, is this really treatment, or Chemical Restraint?

The editorial goes on to wonder, “Certainly, AADP is a less-costly alternative to locking up repeat DWI offenders, but is it the most cost-effective alternative? Do the medical and constitutional questions about Antabuse treatment warrant its continued use? The program has been the subject of legal challenges, and there are questions about the drug’s effect on the liver.

Allen Circuit Judge Thomas J. Felts, who orders some offenders to the program, said that he is re-evaluating the best course for felony drunken-driving cases in light of the developments at AADP but said the program has been doing a good job in spite of the director’s departure.”

In addition, questions about how much money was made linger, “Questions about the program’s cost have long circulated. According to figures from the 990 form filed with the Internal Revenue Service, Yeiter earned $73,170 in 2006. That amount was down from 2005, when he earned $85,239 in salary and benefits and 2004, when he earned $91,897. Five other AADP employees earned more than $57,000 in 2006, and contracts for medical and legal services totaled more than $319,000.”

The Blogmeister joins with the Journal Gazette in calling for a reevaluation of the program from top to bottom.  The board of the program has agreed to do this, to their credit, but the Blogmeister feels more effort should be put into treatment, with qualified counselors and therapists, instead of the continued use of Antabuse.  One reason the program is successful is many physicians refuse to prescribe the drug due to the above physical concerns, so this is one of the few places Judges can order an offender to get the drug.   Second, the amount of money spent on salaries is outrageous for a nonprofit program.  It is programs such as this that give nonprofits a bad reputation for abusing their legal status and not paying their share of taxes.

  1. Please read this carefuly. The clients at aadp are the poorest in the communnity. If they are unable to pay cost at the end of each week the are made to stand in the no pay line. Fees on average are about $50.00 per week. If you stand in the no pay line you will be given a drug test which will cost at least $40.00. This gives the person who is unable to pay an intrest penalty of nearly 100%. I would love to get in more detail about some other things but this is a public blog and from what I hear a public story written about this program resulted in a reporter getting fired.

  2. Thanks for your post and I appreciate your fear of saying more. However, was there any counseling/therapy/treatment there?

  4. To address the first subject of Terry Yeiter. Yes this man was not of good moral character, he apparently condoned and permitted the forced fed chemical poisoning of thousands of people in Fort Wayne(that had no intention of hurting anybody I might add). Unfortunately, getting rid of Mr Yeiter really solves nothing in the grand scheme of things. It is our thought that the board has asked him to step down as a type of diversion from the real travesty, they have been poisoning people for years(remember the board members are doctors and lawyers and such, very smart). As for the “most cost effective alternative” thats darn right. While someone in charge is lining their pockets and the facility spends nothing and receives state funding each poor client is expected to pay the equivalant of 2 brand new cars. Also, they say it is an alternative to incarceration, this is completely idiotic. What happened to home detention, work release, probation, the interlock system, classes and the list goes on. As for the tax issue and salaries, this is a mess. These people should not be making this kind of money. If you look at what the appropriate wages are for their position in this rural area it should be considerably less. Also, are we seriously going to trust the board with the re-evaluation of itself? Besides these are the people who have been and will continue to twist the contitution in their favor whatever it may be. Please visit our site for all the information you need. Oh, and don’t re-evaluate, close the doors and restore some dignity to Fort Wayne, IN. http://www.fightaadp.bravehost.com

  7. THE FUNNIEST THING ABOUT THE ANTIBUSE PROGRAM IS THAT YOU PAY THEM, OR A GOOD LAWYER TO GET OUT OF IT, YOUR PAYING ABOUT THE SAME. SO WHO POCKETS ARE GETTING LINED. EITHER WAY THEY ARE GETTING OUR MONEY(LAWYERS, JUDGES, COURT SYSTEM. IF WE ALL SAID NO AND DECIDED TO GO TO JAIL THEY WOULD NOT HAVE THE ROOM. BUT OF COURSE WE ALL HAVE TO KEEP OUR JOBS, AND THAT HOW THEY GET PEOPLE TO DO THE PROGRAM. OF COURSE MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE THE STATE SUPPORT US(AND THE HIGH PAYING PEOPLE). AND THEN IF YOU DON’T DO AS EXACTLY AS THEY SAID YOU GO BACK UP TO THE HIGHEST PAYING BRACKET AGAIN. AND THEN MOST PEOPLE STILL GET OUT IN THREE YEARS. I WENT TO ORIENTATION AND 4 OUT OF 10 WERE BACK IN THE PROGRAM, SO IS IT HELPING(NO).

  9. The sad part about it is that people who are placed on antabuse do not have the knowledge or the resources to fight this problem. Many times the issue has publicly presented itself and somehow there is a lid put on it everytime. I can not tell you how frustrating it is to walk in there and pay every week and the bill still be extremely high. The city of Fort Wayne is making soooo much money, while saving it too! You pay $60 a week (if not, publicly embarrassed by standing in the no-pay line, for HOURS, and they DO NOT care of your circumstances or if you miss work) plus $150 for an ETG test, which is widley known for being too sensitive and giving false positive results. Fort Wayne saves money by not putting these people in jail and giving them the “choice” of antabuse or prision. Why is it that Fort Wayne and ONE other county in the ENTIRE United States adopt this “program” ?!?!?! And when will we form a weekly or monthly group, like an AA meeting, to stop poisening the 4,000 individuals of Allen county? WHEN?!?! Until a group is formed and steps in a forward direction of fighting this disgusting money cow, NOTHING will happen, no matter how much we complain….

  10. I talk to a friend that just got off of antibuse and he said it screw up his liver pretty bad. And then when he could not take the antibuse, because of emzymes, they accused him of drinking and tested him all the time. He said that they tested him about once a month if not twice. Of course that means his bill was extremely high. Who can afford this working or not working. And it is almost impossiable to get down to phase d unless you have a sponsor. Not everyone feels that this is the course they need to take. So you are stuck paying 3o dollars every week, unless you refuse to go to aa classes and then your back up to 40 and phase A(refusal). After that they test you all the time again. So no matter what you are at the mercy of them. I think at least they could have time periods so at least you could get it down lower and not do all that bull shit.

  11. Wow my bill never goes down either by the way. I live in Huntington CO and have been going to aadp for 2 year now(one more left hopefully) I have never had a dirty urine or never give them hassle. Ive asked if I could get transferred to Huntington co and they said no its to much trouble. Yeah right.. I still pay the same fee as any other client and im not healthy enough to take the antabuse so I have to come 45 minutes 5 days a week to blow in a tube. Yeah its BS if you ask me. They also would test me once a week for the first years because they thought I might be drinking.. Hell I even asked the judge if I could be put in prison instead of this his answer was NO! Yea whos really profiting off this?? Did I mention when I got my 2nd DUI I lived on a military base in oklahoma at the time and they FORCED me to move back to Indiana . I had to wait 3 months until I could have someone get my belongings in OK. Luckily I had friend who took care of my place while I was forced to live back home again. Sounds like they are more worried about money then the lives of people.. Its such a scam!

  12. I am a client at the AADP program. I started the Antabuse October 2006 I found that I had Hepatitis C December 2006 after numerous blood test because my liver enzymes were high, they have not taken me off of this drug yet. My liver enzymes are on the high end of their scale everytime I have a blood test taken. They tell me “I’m still ok it could just be from stress or I must be taking something to raise them”. I pay $75 a week plus all drug test and blood test fees. Also the gas money from Warsaw 3 times a week. I was told by a probation officer there when I asked her for permission to move for a huge employment oppertunity that “If I can’t hack it in this world I just need to drop off the face of the earth”. This is not a program that cares about helping people with an addiction. The statistics show that forcing someone to stop an addiction does not help. Someone has to want to quit and after that group therapy like AA have the best results. I was told today in AADP when talking about this story with one of the probation officers ” tylanol will give you cancer and have reactions” but, the difference is knowone makes you take 1500mg of tylanol a week. They say you have a choice take this poison and pay us lots of money or do the time in jail and loose everything you have. I have heard that AADP is owned by the same judges that sentence you. I hope something is done about this money mill. I would like to have a chance of having a liver left after fighting Hep C on top of taking this poison.

  14. You people have to realize that the drug that you call “rat posion” is actually a thing in the drug is a blood thinner used by many doctors to help many patients to lower risks of heart attack or strokes. The blood thinner chemcial aka you call rat posion kills the rats do the fact it thins their blood and then magically the chemical that kills the rat. So until you actually read about this drug do not listen to person that has not taken or even knows of the side effects.

  16. Disulfram(anabuse)…thinned my blood out so much, i had to spend 6 days and 16k in the hospital, with no insurance….Do you think AADP will cover my medical expenses? of course not, now they charge me 74$ a week for breath tests,…and they are making me do community service because i got laid off….I think it would be easier to cut my wrists and bleed to death in their parking lot and make those pigs clean up my toxic, addicted, alcoholic body…

  17. Guys, nobody here shares how many times you got hurt because of drinking and driving, how many friends or relatives you hurt or god forbid…you killed, how many cars you smashed or properties you’ve damaged. How is your health after all the drinking and abusing drugs? How is your memory? How many felonies do you have? Why do you expect the community to solve your problems? It is nice to have a site where everyone can express his or her conscenrns and thoughts. You have to let the victims talk too, not only the offenders. Thanks for your attention.

    • The bad thing is that neither the law nor the drug can distinguish between an offender (casual drinker) and an alcoholic! So your comments are just as ignorant as you! I’ve been studing the laws for OWI and DUI, believe me they are written to convict. also, this drug is given forcefully to people BEFORE they are convicted of a crime!!!!! What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Being forced to submit to testing and drugs BEFORE you have your day in court is contrary to everything this coutry was built on, the ONLY ones who benefit from this program are the FAT CATS! Judge Felts recently got a DUI…never did jail time, never lost his license, was never forced to consume poison. He still has his job, I’m guessing the people at AADP posted his bail!

  18. “Boo hoo, my liver is bad because of antabuse. Woa is me, woa is me.” So I read up on this antabuse thing, known as Disulfiram-oral. The side-effects are, well, common. It’s the normal headache, drowsy, upset stomach type of thing. You guys are talking about all these enzymes and liver issues and thinning of the blood. When all of a sudden did you guys decide you wanted to study and research antabuse, if you know anything about research it’s that you have to study both sides. Alcohol and alcohol mixed with antabuse is what harms your liver. This is from a medical point of view. So before you even think about how bad it’s “messing up your liver” think about how bad your messing up your life without it. Half of ya’ll didn’t even spell ANTABUSE right anyway.

    • Study the law and then you get an opinion…there are many more child molesters on the streets then alcoholics…so lock up your babies, the world is a scary place! You can keep them inside away from all the drunk drivers and rapists out there but they”ll still be exposed to your ignorance..soooo….

  19. I agree with the last comment. How would life ended up had you not got the OWI and the “rat poison”…what if you ran over a kid in the street with your drunken driving and killed him? Then what jail time and consequence would you have? Instead of crying about the fact that you got caught breaking the law (drinking legal, yes, driving a car drinking-illegal and lethal), you should maybe realize that you are an alcoholic if you cant stay sober and let the program help you rehabilitate your life.And a night on the town drinking costs more than what it costs you to fix your sorry ways. I will pray for you.

  21. I love the assumption that anyone forced to report to AADP before they are convicted (unconstitutional)is being branded a drug addict and alcoholic. It’s comical, “what if you ran over child in the street as a result of your drinking?” Save the fucking children, lock up everyone that poses a potential threat to society as a whole, these alcoholic miscreants are not to be trusted. This type of blind disregard for the surrounding details is typical of the mentality that allowed certain minorities to be considered property in this country some generations ago.

    How about this for the senselessness of the that logic:

    John Doe was written a ticket for speeding at a rate of 15 mph over the posted speed limit for the 2nd time in 5 years… what if his speeding caused him to hit a child because he was unable to stop in time? Holy fucking shit Batman, lets go ahead and force everyone issued a speeding ticket to pay an absurd fine and ingest a speeding-prevention poison before they can even contest the ticket in court! Yes! That’s a great solution!

    Asinine, the comments from the moral police always make me laugh, as if they have never in their lives done something irresponsible or questionable, fucking assholes.

  22. Google the Honorable Thomas Felts, Allen Co. Circuit Court Judge and see what pops up. My guess would be even the public servant of the moral police seems to have fucked up. Shocking. No, wait, not really shocking at all if you take some time and educate yourself about the dangers and illegality of AADP instead of playing moral cops on a message board while not knowing a fucking thing about it. Enjoy your ignorance.

  23. Yes,it is a well organized rackett.What happened to reasonable bail? How and why does Felts receive both criminal cases and non-payment lawsuits for AADP? I had a PD that postponed jury trial for nearly 18 months,afterwich Ryan postponed for 6 more.The NASTY old bitch at AADP lied thru her fucking fat face and locked me up 30 days before trial.Had damn good case.PD never came to talk about case.Lost case of course.Received no credit for those 2 years.Did 5 instead of 3.Have hep.c.They pretended they did not know,even after telling these jerks for 3.5 years.Liver enzymes topped high end,they were not concerned until I pointed it out.Fought hard in civil case by myself.Made Yeiter and his scam look look like what it is,A SCAM,AN ELABORATE,PROBABLE KICK-BACK INFESTED PUBLIC SCAM!WHY THE NEWS MEDIA DOES NOT GET INVOLVED,use your imagination! Just getting started!

  24. Unless I am mistaken,judge Ryan was on the board of directors of AADP upon his founding this well planned scam.So reasonable bail was go to his`not for profit’buisness or stay in jail,even before a trial or plea.Is this `reasonable’ bond? Just another constitutional issue to ponder!

  25. Upon entering this”only for profit” organization,I signed a”payment of fees”contract. It states`The staff at AADP will not refer me back to court for failure to pay’… and will work out arrangements irregardless of financial situation.About a month before trial,the OLD,NASTY-TEMPERED,MEAN BITCH took me to court for nopay.On her memo it states`going to hearing about no pay status’. About 3 days before trial I had a hearing,she used irrellevant reasons from 2 years past,not the nopay original excuse. Ryan knew she was deceiving him,asked a few questions,public defender brought it up,I said “it’s all about money”.He said “release denied”! I did not see PD until day of trial.Was innocent,but could not call or talk to witnesses or PD.Don’t dare sue AADP,for huge fear of the retaliations while still on program.Definetly some of the worst years of my life! Have MANY more bad episodes with these festive people!

  28. After reading all of your comment I feel that most of you do not understand how Antabuse even works within ur body. Most of the comments talk about liver ezymes and Hepatitis…..what do you think the number one cause of elevated emzymes and Hepatitis is??? Your wrong if you think its Antabuse….ALCOHOL!! How many of you had routine blood work done before starting antabuse? slim to none im sure. So you start Antabuse get blood work done frequently and you notice something, your enzymes are elevated…. And you then start pointing fingers at the drug that mostly saved your life. Liver enzymes are not only elevated by alochol use but also by obesity and diabetes. All people are different, different amounts of substances can do different things to an individuals body. I had a 33 year old female patient whom I saw about once a year for common things like a cold or UTI, no major medical problems. This patient drank on the weekends which her family and self considered to be no big deal. She was found dead in her appartment the doctor conducting the atoposy was dumbfounded and called me when the results. She died of cirrohsis of the liver at the age of 33 and her husband and friends will argue with you till the day they die that this loved one only drank on the weekends. This is rare but proof that only a few drinks here and there are enough to do harmful effects to the body…

    Here is how antabuse works

    Alcohol is metabolized by the liver enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase into acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is toxic. Any concentration of it in the blood causes unpleasant physiological events: rapid increase in blood flow to the skin of the face, neck, and chest, rapid heartbeat, headache, nausea, and extreme drowsiness. The intensity of these effects is determined by the individual’s metabolism and the concentration of acetaldehyde in the blood.

    Acetaldehyde is metabolized by another enzyme called aldehyde dehydrogenase into acetate, which is essentially harmless and eventually metabolized into carbon dioxide and water.

    Antabuse blocks production of the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase. The acetaldehyde remains in the system. The concentration of acetaldehyde in the blood increases according to the amount of alcohol consumed, as do the unpleasant effects it causes. The experience of drinking alcoholic beverages, which is normally pleasant, becomes unpleasant.

  34. Folks, I’m a retired (disability) engineer, have a couple of degrees, was on one of Park Center’s satellite boards of directors, know Tom Felts and Terry Y – and let me tell you, they are hiding behind a veil of HIPA restraints.

    We met with Tom Felts (Judge Felts) about 4 years ago, the head of NAMI Fort Wayne, Paul Wilson (head of Park Center), myself and a couple of other people. Documented severe health risks, forced ingestion of antabuse by people who are contraindicated (mentally ill for one, yet I was required to take it until I went into a psychosis and was hospitalized).

    Two deaths I know of personally – Rudy Escobedo (Psychosis/police standoff) and recently, Mitch (Ray) Helmsing (7 years on program due to unpaid fees and relapses).

    These are MISDEMEANOR charges people.

    AADP has been written up in several foreign journals/newspapers as a crowning example of how the United States talks freedom but is a corporate dictatorship and fails to protect even medical rights of its citizens.

  35. PS: Felts (when presented with proof of deaths and statistics proving that 1 of every 3000 people will die if given antabuse) said “…I can understand your concern, but the program gets the results this community wants.”

    Felts, I wouldn’t put YOU on it – and YOU have a DUI. I have 474 signatures as I was thinking of leading a campaign to force you onto your own program, but discarded the idea as I am NOT like you… it is NOT worth the risk to your life.

  40. I FIND MANY OF THESE COMMENTS ENTERTAINING. MOST PEOPLE ARE LIKELY TAKING ANTABUSE (OR HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS TAKING ANTABUSE) BECAUSE THEY LACK THE ABILITY TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS, LIKE NOT DRINKING AND DRIVING. IT IS NOT THAT HARD OF A CONCEPT. YOU DRINK TOO MUCH, YOU GET A CAB OR A DESIGNATED DRIVER. THE THING IS PEOPLE DO MAKE MISTAKES. BUT THESE BRAIN TRUSTS DIDN’T GET CAUGHT DRINKING AND DRIVING ONCE, BUT MOST OF THEM HAVE BEEN CAUGHT TWO OR MORE TIMES DRINKING AND DRIVING. SEVERAL PEOPLE ON THE SITE HAVE ARGUED THAT THESE PEOPLE DO NOT INTENTIONALLY PUT ANYBODY AT RISK. I WOULD ARGUE THEY DO INTENTIONALLY DRINK TO EXCESS AND THEN INTENTIONALLY GET BEHIND THE WHEEL; THAT SOUNDS PRETTY INTENTIONAL TO ME. FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT LET’S SAY THAT SOMEONE ON TWO OR MORE OCCASIONS HAS “ACCIDENTALLY” DRANK TOO MUCH AND THEN GOT BEHIND THE WHEEL. SINCE THEY ARE ENDANGERING EVERYONE AROUND THEM AND GET CAUGHT MULTIPLE TIMES WE SHOULD NOT DO ANYTHING? HOW ABOUT I SIT DOWN AND PLAY WITH A GUN? AND AFTER THE SECOND, THIRD, OR FOURTH TIME OF SHOOTING SOMEONE YOU CONTINUE TO LET ME FACE NO CONSEQUENCES? THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT IDEA. NO CONSEQUENCES FOR ENDANGERING PEOPLE’S LIVES, YOU GUYS ARE ASININE. LET ME KNOW WHEN ONE OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS IS KILLED BY A DRUNK DRIVER.

    AND AS FAR AS THE DAMAGE TO THE LIVER: I’LL ADMIT I AM NO DOCTOR BUT AS SOMEONE WHO IS NOT A COMPLETE IDIOT, LAST I HEARD ALCOHOL IS NOT GOOD ON YOUR LIVER EITHER (AND BY THE WAY NEITHER IS IBUPROFEN, WHICH THESE INDIVIDUALS PROBABLY TAKE FOR THEIR HANGOVERS). YOUR COMPLAINTS, ABOUT HAVING TO PAY BETWEEN $30-$50 A WEEK, ARE ALSO BREAKING MY HEART. HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK YOU OR THESE IDIOTS (IF YOU ARE NOT ONE CURRENTLY ON ANTABUSE) SPEND AT THE BAR OR LIQUOR STORE IN A WEEK? YOU GO THROUGH THAT MUCH EASILY IN A BAR OR PICKING UP TWO CASES OF BEER IN A LIQUOR STORE. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE WRITTEN MATERIAL ON THIS WEBSITE, THAT ARE CURRENTLY ON ANTABUSE, STOP YOUR WHINING, DO US A FAVOR, AND GO TO PRISON IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT.

    P.S. PROOF READ YOUR COMPLAINTS, I AM NOT BY ANY MEANS REAL SMART BUT YOU SOUND LIKE IDIOTS. PROOF READ. (I HOPE YOU GET THE SARCASM)

  41. k, i see ur logic.i,personally am fascinated about the corruption,the amount of money generated,with no access to the books.accusations of inflated salaries, missing monies,fired director,hypocritic judge that covers their criminal and civil suits,(and also gets a dui),no reasonable bond except to forced into this scam,guilty or not, without a trial. by the way i was not.they put me in jail over money,which was on contract i signed saying they will not ever do this.thus my public defender would not come to see me in jail,hence could not even defend myself.no credit for the 2 years this jerk and the judge postponed the trial,not me! the way the court and public defenders office ignored my appeal of inept council,the way i could not sue them while on the “proscam” program DUE TO WHAT THEY WOULD TO TO ME,,the way my liver enzymes rose and acute lower right abdominal pain was ignored,the way any dr. ,once I MENTIONED AADP DID NOT BELIEVE A WORD I SAID,EVEN THOUGH THEY SAY “YOUR LIVER IS SWOLLEN” .I HAVE HEPATITIS C,EVEN THOUGH THEY DENIED KNOWING THIS,EVEN AFTER BEING SUIED FOR THE MONEY THEY DESPERATLY NEEDED,THE JUDGE, SAME ONE WHO DOES THEIR CRIMINAL CASES,ENTERS A JUDGEMENT, AUTOMATICALLY ,WHICH I HAD NO SAY SO IN.HAD TO REQUEST IT BE SET ASIDE, WHICH WAS,YOU CANNOT EVEN GET HEARING WITH THIS CROOKED PROGRAM.THEIR ATTNY. WANTED REASONABLE FEES OF OVER $1000 TO MAIL ME A FALSE JUDGEMENT.WENT TO COURT 3 TIMES, THE JUDGE WOULD NOT ALLOW ME TO SEE MY OWN FILE.THEY WERE USING PARTS OF IT AGAINST ME,BUT THEY WOULD NOT EVEN LET ME READ A FILE I PAID FOR AS A CLIENT!!! PLUS, ALL THE OTHER SIMILAR,SOME MUCH WORSE,I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LISTEN TO!ECT, ECT, ECT. THIS DOESNT INCLUDE THE MANY THINGS YOU WOULD NOT EVEN BELIEVE!HOW WERE YOUR 5 YRS OF A WRONGFUL CONVICTION!!!!!!!!!

  42. PS TO # 41 : AFTER 3 COURT APPEARANCES ON THE CIVIL SCAM,THEIR LAWYER THOUGHT THE $1000 PLUS WAS STILL A REASONABLE FEE. ASK THE SAME AMOUNT IN THE BEGINNING TO MAIL AN ENVELOPE,WITH A PRE-DETERMINED JUDGEMENT,A FORM LETTER! HOW MANY 1OOOs WERE TAKEN ADVANTAGE BEFORE ME? THESE ARE ONLY A PORTION OF WENT WENT ON WITH ME.WHAT ABOUT THE 10,S OF THOUSANDS OF OTHERS? I SMELL CORRUPTION STRONGLY,IN MY OPINION,.

  43. in reponse to 41 and 41. you may have an interesting point with the judge being involved in a poss. owi. However, people on the aadp program were smart enough to get caught at least twice. if your so worried about your liver, stop drinking. try making an educated response next time to the issues that were raised.

    p.s. don’t like it, don’t drink and drive.

  44. to #43, the whole jist is i was not drinking and driving. i had just left work 5 minutes earlier,on my way home! i did drink like a fish due to a bottle of vodka in the vehicle,after the wreck.the paramedics knew this.thing is i was appointed an inept,totally incompetent,so-called attorney.this place jailed me for not giving them enough cash,which ,by contract, they can not do. you do not dare take them to court due to the punishment they would dish out!it is not pleasant.the so-called attorney did not discuss the case with me. i had no chance. they dragged me to court and that was it. railroaded. i am intelligent,however, i know that one does not stir up a hornets nest without some defensive protection.you outsiders will NEVER UNDERSTAND THE ILLEGALITY,UNLESS YOU EXPERIENCE IT!you all have no room to talk. i am not bitching on the manner people arrived there,it is what happens behind closed doors.it is so sad that the public cannot be informed of the absolute truth! i still shiver thinking about it!. so wise up idiot, until you know why i am doing my best to relay to the people the truth.it is a scandel that goes very deep into the guts of the government.the media,the doctors,prominent individuals in the community will not get involved, when posed any questions! figure it out! I AM SAYING ALL OF THIS FROM DIGGING IN TO GET TO THE TRUTH. WISH ANY MEDIA PERSONELL HAD THE BALLS TO EXPOSE THE CORRUPTNESS! ask them and they hide. try it. IT IS THE TRUTH.

  49. I had & continue to still have health issues directly related to antabuse. Naturally of course they DENY this and would rather insist that these health issues were “bound to happen” anyways and that I was using Antabuse as a “scapegoat” (typical deflect response) yet these very particular heatlth issues DID NOT exist PRIOR to Antabuse use & they are also very precise as to what they are (side effects & health issues directly related to Antabuse which are documented) but there was and still is NO other explanation as to why I suffered all these health issues. In other words, my problems cannot be related or blamed on anything that I did or lack there of. What tickled me was when they tried to blame my use of alcohol on it. Now I admit that in the early 1990’s I did like to party however, just because I was caught Drinking and Driving DOES NOT mean that this was something that I did on a consistant basis it really just meant I was young & had a low tolerance for alcohol consumption, made piss poor choices to drive while inebriated & got caught. If I was such a “stone cold drunk” one would think I would have had a much higher tolerance to alcohol, but, whatever. Again, my issues are issues that thoussands of other people have experienced on Antabuse and it is a well known documented side effect and also documented health risk. ALL of which (at the time) was NOT made known to ME and even thinking about asking for a placebo documentation or other documents pertaining to what this drug does immedietly had Probation Officers screaming at me and making comments that I must like the thought of Prison. So basically, they also incorporated psychological bulls*** on me (and others) that even just ASKING about it could possibly render us in Prison. Well, naturally the thought of that was awful in itself. They hang that over your head, they threaten you with it. Basically in a nutshell I was told just to keep my mouth shut, dont go nosing around sticking my nose where it dont belong, concentrate on “myself” (which to me worrying about health risks is concentrating on myself) PAY my money and all will be fine!! Oh, and if you even think for one second sticking up for yourself in the pursuit of Justice and wrongdoing for ANYTHING that involves Law Officials, U just might find yourself on the opposite end of a flashlight as they harrass you at your house, all hours of the night, beating on doors and windows in hopes of you doing something or coming outside screaming for them to get the hell away from your house that way they can arrest you this time for “Disorderly Conduct”. Take it from someone who knows. But, what they dont know is I wont be silenced. If anyone needs numbers and addressess where to contact in regards to this, I would be glad to help. They DONT want this being made public over and over, they dont want their precious careers & reputation (if thats what U wanna call it) soiled, they dont want their lives disrupted & they dont want to be embarressed. While I DO NOT condone Drinking and Driving & yes, it is a crime and there most definetly needs to be a penalty for it, they way that they go about this is unreal. The threats and the monopoly all in the name of greed and money is despicable. Actual “treatment” isnt their goal. And if there is a problem with drinking it is the persons responsibilty and obligation to themselves, their family and the community to do something about it (if there really is a problem) that way innocent people dont end up hurt or, killed. However, if a person refuses to take responsibilty for themselves and they have to be “forced”, forcing health comprimising and health damaging chemicals down their throat and hanging PRISON over their head every chance they get isnt the way it should be “forced”. This isnt and has ever (in my opinion) been about the “Community” and its overall safety or treatment, it really is about greed,power and money. I got storys oozing out my eyes about myself and others in regards to this “wonderfull drug” and the “beautiful people” at AADP (Fort Wayne Indiana)Oh, in case nobody here knows this I heard that now adays Probation Officers are literally threatening people with a violation of their Probation and going to jail/prison for voicing their opinion on this other website. Hahahaha. They CANT do that but what they CAN do is violate a person for “something else” when really thats the actual reason for the violation but Doctor it up to make it appear as if thats NOT the reason. Sort of like NOT hiring someone based on their disability or race but NEVER announcing thats the REAL motive behind it. What are they gonna do, spend more money to track down peoples IP addressess to see where the comments came from and then hold court in attempts to “prove” that their Probationee actually wrote it? If thats the case, they will then be admitting they are violating ones rights to freedom of speech. It looks like one day the house of cards will come crashing down on these troglodytes.-Ciao

  50. Let me add that when I was on Antabuse (AADP) it was in its green stages, very very NEW! I was a kid. In fact, I wasnt even of legal drinking age quite yet to consume alcohol but they felt I WAS old enough to take this “drug”, go figure. It wasnt “2 or more” DWI’s then either. It was ONE. And YES, there should of been punishment for me. I put the lives of the community at risk while I galavated around town, crusing in a car, music playing, turning corners in my new car thinking “what a blast this is” well I couldnt have been more wrong. At the time, I didnt see the error of my ways. I just thought I knew it all. This is back when it was near the old Lutheran Hospital when it was on Fairfield. Marcia Wagoner was a Probation Officer then. This woman would actually threaten young men and women both to take their kids from them and toss them in foster care and if U DARED say anything to the effect of “Well, that will never happen & if a parent DOES in fact lose custody of their kid because of this one DWI and the fact that they cant afford Antabuse, the grandparents would get the kid” and of course Miss Wagoners response would be “Well what court would put a kid with grandparents who couldnt even raise YOU right, look at you, you’re here on probation on Antabuse” & cant even pay for that. Her whole arguement about “kids” and what not would typically stem from a persons inability to pay for their Antabuse once or twice. Even if it was 20 times, a Probation Officer even involving themselves that deep into ones life, making terrorizing comments like that to someone so young and naive to the system to instill FEAR into that person so that they do whatever they have to do to have that Antabuse money is deplorable. If it meant forfeiting a gas bill and it being shut off, thats what some people did to make sure that Antabuse money was priority #1. There were sooooo many disgusting deplorable things that was done to people both very young and older it sickens me to this day. Again, I got storys about this oozing out my eyes. I guess things have changed in regards to policy and law since then though. When it comes to the safety of others and the whole Drinking and Driving issue, Im not too sure how to curb or remedy that to be honest but i do know that it should NEVER be tolerated especially when it is a persistant thing and someone re-offends. But some of the things that I have mentioned SHOULD not ever be acceptable. EVER. I dont know if a FULL leaflet or pamphlet is NOW inculded about taking Antabuse or not but I just know that back then, it was not, it was kept hush hush and like I already stated, simply asking about health risks about it could very well land U in hot hot water. So many people were trying to stay out of jail and prison while others firmly believed that if they were parents their kids would in fact end up in Fostor Homes. Did it work? Well, for some, yes. It did. I just dont believe in the whole “by “ANY” means nessessary” esepcially when the GOAL isnt truly about concern and care for people or the community, its strickly about money money money money. Had that been ME or anyone else NOT in that position of Authority saying things like that or handling cases like that, we could very well end up in jail ourselves because if U asked me, Miss Wagoner and others like her broke the law as well, many many times over.-Ciao

  51. I’m on it. I took a drug screen and tested positive for a drug I had never heard of nor taken before the test, “phenobarbital”. AADP nurse then called my work, feeling it was her “duty as a nurse to do so”, since I worked in a healthcare facility, and to inform them of my positive drug screen. So I of course, lost my job. Been umemployed since January of this year. Of course with no job its very difficult to pay them. My bills and keeping a roof over my daughters head come FIRST. They DO NOT CARE. They want their money or will hound you like dogs to get it. Unfortunately I will not be paying them anywhere near what they want from me….and of course am being taken back to for it. And for the probation officer not being able to verify my community service, even though I have a phone number she can call to talk to the girl I did it for/with. She will not even accept the number. I was terminated from the non payment program. Anyone have an idea of what will happen when I go to court?

    Comment by John Castro — September 19, 2011 @ 6:03 am | Reply

  53. Where is line supposed to be drawn? I know someone who has been dealt every possible hoop that there is in Allen County. This person has been through ALL of it. Yet, due to the inability to continue paying these idiots 50.00, this person was arrested recently for ‘probation violation’. Now- this person has to make a decision: 1 year in jail, and be finished. Or- 6 months on HOUSE ARREST and be finished. OR- EXTEND their time dealing with AADP for TWO months, and MAYBE be done.
    I’m sorry. But this is BULLSHIT. After thousands of dollars in fines, already being on house arrest, jailed for several months, released from jail only to have to go to a HALFWAY HOUSE WHILE on house arrest, this is COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLSHIT. The “SYSTEM” in Allen County Indiana needs to have their OWN lives examined. I can GUARANTEE you that if one were to look hard enough at the people who have dished all this out- I’d bet you’ll find LOTS of skeletons in their closets, and lots of payoffs along the way to keep their asses out of trouble. Look at the damned JUDGE for Christ;s Sake!!! Case in point:

    http://indianalawblog.com/archives/2009/03/ind_courts_alle_16.html

    And I quote:

    The 5-0, 2-page order, In the Matter of the Hon. Thomas J. Felts, concludes:
    Respondent and the Commission have agreed that driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .15 constitutes a violation of Canons 1(A)1 and 2(A)2 of the Code of Judicial Conduct, and that Respondent has violated these Canons. The parties have also agreed that Respondent has cooperated with the Commission throughout these proceedings, and that the appropriate sanction under the circumstances of this case is a public reprimand. The Court agrees with the parties.
    Accordingly, Thomas J. Felts, Judge in the Allen Circuit Court, is hereby reprimanded. This discipline terminates the disciplinary proceedings relating to the circumstances giving rise to this cause. The costs of this proceeding are assessed against Respondent.”

    Now- somebody explain how the hell this man can dish out the shit he has given the person I am referring to, and still sit on the bench in a court of law and JUDGE others who have done the same damn thing he has done!!!!!!!

    Not to mention the effects of what the damned drug, antabuse, has done to this person’s system. Is the county of Allen or the city of Fort Wayne willing to take on this person’s medical bills, and everyone else’s that they have force fed this shit to in order for ‘punishment’ to be exacted? What kind of freaking justice system to we have? Really??

    Somebody needs to LEGALLY put a stop to this shit.
    Sure. Email me if you wish. I do NOT CARE. I AM NOT AFRAID TO STAND UP AGAINST THE IDIOTS WHO RUN THIS SO CALLED LEGAL SYSTEM IN ALLEN COUNTY INDIANA.
    I have a list of EVERY SINGLE thing that has been done in this particular person’s case- from beginning to right now. I can VERIFY all of it- what has been done TO this person as well. I want a STOP put to the illegal behavior of the Allen County Indiana police, and judicial system.

    I’m SICK of seeing what the hell it is doing to MANY people’s lives, NOT JUST THE PERSON i HAVE BEEN REFERRING TO IN THIS POST.

    Comment by Simon — January 17, 2012 @ 6:26 pm | Reply

  55. After reading through the comments I came up with this all on my own….The fact of the matter is this that you all talk about “people” and their affects that they have with this drug, and this process. First I have to say that just so your all aware is that you are not worried about other people taking this shit you are worried about yourself. Which is completely natural we are society and or/nation that only cares about the well being of ourselves so please do not try to fool anyone besides yourself that you care about others on this program.
    Second point you all drank and drove in order to get to this process and according to Simon who I think works there makes some good points but don’t agree how he comes across. But he is right you all did it twice. And you can all say that I was fine to drive no one died the cops had it out for me blah blah blah….The fact is you were drunk twice and got caught which means when you drive you all suck at driving drunk. Which goes back to my first point you all do not care about society so don’t claim you care now. And for anyone to believe you care about anyone but yourselves is just asinine.
    Third you all complain about the fees and how this shit is government funded…Non For Profit does not mean that can not make money. Second if it was government funded they would not need that much money from you to keep it going as I heard from many of you that you were hounded to get payment…Case in point you all need to get together to get this place closed and here is how you do it. Go….Back….To….Jail. Now you all are thinking now he must work there fucking spy I know but hear me out. If you do not go there meaning ALL OF YOU not just a few ALL OF YOU go back to jail how will they get money to stay open…They can’t meaning you succeeded closing AADP but you will have to do some Jail time in order to you get all of your process done. But like you all said before its how much you care for your fellow man do some jail time for him/her. So they don’t have to take the drug Antabuse. But once again made in point one its about you not everyone else.
    But I am with you all I think we should close the doors on AADP and Make all drugs legal. Because in a Society that we live in I want to be the last one standing so I want you all to huff paint, sniff glue, heroin, cocaine, etc. Because in the end you can not force someone to stop drinking or doing drugs with a pill it is something the person has to want to do not forced to do. And for most people that do use drugs family, job, career, spouse, and kids if they wont stop for them why would they stop for AADP. Do I think this place will close….no but their are people out there that think just like most do that I can do what I want when I want and you then have your next drug user and a future person either in jail or there. But I thank god everyday for drunk drivers and drug users especially the ones that kill Innocent people behind the wheel. Because I thank them because the person they killed will never drive drunk or under the influence of anything one less asshole I have to worry about trying to gun me down. I am sure you will all have comments for what I have said go for it speak your mind like I did. You can not change me through blogging like I did not change you in any way shape or form. Peace
