"He has turned into Kurtz.....they need to send in his Dad to go get him."
Col Kurtz: I expected someone like you. What did you expect? Are you an assassin?
Capt Willard: I'm a soldier.
Col Kurtz: You're neither. You're an errand boy, sent by grocery clerks, to collect a bill.
I think his rant against things he has been exposed to in AA is also a rant against his father.
Sometimes, a drug and/or alcohol addict who has dried out numerous times becomes inoculated to all of the language and sensibility of recovery in general. The world of addition and recovery becomes a game they play and the recovery world becomes as bizarre to them as the addicted world.
Generally they turn away from recovery repeatedly at that point and spiral into the ground like an aircraft with all horizon reference lost.
