Cody Bishop, as many of you will remember, was exploited by Richie Webber, Wavelengths Treatment Center, and Warren Boyd. Straight out of the gate it was easy to see that Cody (and Kate Privett) were set-up for failure.
Richie Webber, Wavelengths, and Warren Boyd created a social media circus, as a marketing strategy for their own selfish purposes, framed around Cody Bishop and Kate Privett. Many “live” videos were done with Richie Webber, Cody, and Kate…exploiting them the from the very first day they entered treatment. Webber and Boyd played on Cody’s and Kate’s egos which is a sure fired way to sabotage anyone’s recovery.
I personally reached-out to Cody’s mother, Jennifer Salfen Tracy, soon after this whole sham began. We spoke on the telephone more than once. Jennifer was not receptive to the education and awareness that I offered her. In fact, she became quite hostile.
Eventually I was contacted by an Attorney representing Cody Bishop and his mother informing me that they were suing me. Frankly, I was humored. I spoke with their Attorney on two occasions. Their Attorney was receptive to the educational information I offered him. In fact, he expressed his appreciation. By the close of our 2nd lengthy telephone conversation I made two suggestions to their Attorney.
1. Strongly suggest to your client and his mother to get off Social Media altogether. 2. Consider suing Richie Webber, Wavelengths Treatment Center, and Warren Boyd.
I have heard nothing further from this Attorney.
Why the decision was made for Cody to return home to live with his mother I do not know, but again it was clear to me that this was not a good choice.
Most 12 Step Programs strongly suggest that newcomers not become involved in a new relationship within the first year of recovery as this can distract from one’s recovery. Apparently Cody Bishop did not take this suggestion.
I am truly saddened to hear that Cody Bishop is having a “hard time” and “needs prayer”.
THIS WAS A TRAGEDY IN THE MAKING FROM THE INSTANT RICHIE WEBBER, WAVELENGTHS TREATMENT CENTER, AND WARREN BOYD SUNK THEIR CORRUPT TEETH INTO THESE VULNERABLE HUMAN BEINGS WITH SUD AND MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES SUCKING THE BLOOD AND LIFE RIGHT OUT OF THEM.
I’ll close with a little humor! Looks like I just might need to keep doing what I do.
