NAMI's response is archaic and offensive. Please don't incorporate any of their ideas into this

As`a person with 50 years in recovery I agree with the National Center for Recovery's statement. They can speak alongside of me. NAMI's letter from Michael Fitzpatrick is anti-thetical to person centered, choice, self-determination and full integration into the family and community of your choice, on your terms with your hopes, dreams and decisions about treatment.
