Refusing to train is a UCMJ violation and, in many circumstances, results in some punishment and separation with a punitive discharge, which can have a permanent effect on civil***** *****fe.
A better action here is to continue to go to counseling, complete AIT if counseling doesn't result in recommendation for a separation and then push for separation with the new unit. Training units are actually MUCH less likely to go through the process of separating someone than a local unit.
