My point is that we need to be suspicious of experts. We need to question those who purport to know how to treat others. We need to suspect those who claim to know our minds better than ourselves. We need to question those who would control us and tell us how to make our lives better. We need to suspect those who would do other than empower us.

From a public policy point of view, from a health care reform point of view, from a health care finance point of view, we need to question expensive 28 day treatment programs and focus on more local programs, respectful and empowering, respecting of each person's story, and capable of helping people to transform their story into a better one.
