Trumpeting the "chronic brain disease" model with strict prohibition, contingency management, and lifelong abeyance to the 12-steps they have successfully gained power and control. Physician Health Programs are based on this model.
By convincing regulatory boards that only certain rehab facilities have expertise + experience ”"in the evaluation and treatment of health care professionals” they have cornered the market. It's a stacked deck The end result will always be an evaluation by another “like minded" point person who places coercion and control over conduct

With inpt rehab + drug testing industry behind them + lobbying power and no opposition-- ideology will trump reason and science, the 12-step monopoly will move forward, and civilized society will move back.”
