@ Anon90976- That sounds like a very proactive approach to medicine. It reminds me of how some drug treatment programs work. I used to work and volunteer at a youth center that catered to at risk teens. We worked closely with the local behavioral medicine office. We were only responsible for offering resources for addiction treatment, and providing a safe environment for teens with the aims of preventing drug abuse. However, behavioral medicine combined rehabilitation, therapy, and prescription drug treatment to help those addicted to heroin, Oxycontin, and other drugs (the area I lived in had a high rate of addiction to opiates).
This was often the last chance for many before long prison terms or death. Not everyone was successful at staying clean though, but this mixed approach was more successful at treating addicts than the previous system of going to jail or being admitted to the state hospital.
