Recovery and Psychological Care are just rationalizations for further abusing survivors.  Its about teaching survivors that they should not attempt to restore their public honor.  It's substitution for the Biomedical Model, a model based on Moral Superiority and Denial of the ways in which power is being used against them in the present.

Psychotherapy and Recovery turn your experience of injustice into a self-improvement project.

Foucault explained that it used to be that the state kept people in line via the threat of execution.

But now this is no longer necessary.  The state can keep people in line just by refusing to grant them permission to die.

Deleuze and Guattari say that there is only one genuine mental illness, neuroticism.  It is incurable and it is fatal.

Look at Matthew Warren, the youngest son of Saddleback Church founders Rick and Kay.  As his father says, he had the "best Psychiatrists, best Psychotherapists, and best Prayer Warriors in the entire world".

Psychotherapy is based on a lie, that your experience of distress is only because of things which happened long long ago, and not because of the ways power is being used against you today.  Psychotherapy and Recovery make people neurotic.  And not that un-often, the results are tragic.
