I went to one meeting, then never returned. I heard the program is effective. However, when I was there, The psychologist, Dr. Robert Hunter cursed in front of all of us. He was lecturing to the group and he cursed. He said the F word and the SH word. I just found his manners very insulting so I never returned. Psychology books teach us that people who curse in front of others means that they don't respect that person. He looks down at the people he is suppose to be treating. He disrespects the gamblers he treats.
