Bottom line for me is if the govt is truly serious about fixing drug use, they need to spend more, not less on more rehab places, more counsellors, more duel diagnosis services (bc mental health issues and addiction are often seen hand in hand). This suggestion they have floated is just a thinly veiled attempt to save money and has zero to do with fixing our drug problem
Changed my mind

If they really wanted to help, they would offer rehab to every person who has an addiction or alcoholism who are currently on disability because of their addiction. The government *knows* that these people have addictions -they qualify for disability because of it. But there have never been any measures like that even looked at.
I would not be opposed to mandatory rehab to get disability for addiction, I think it is an area that needs a lot of work.
I hate to think that anyone has been so negatively affected by a thread - here or anywhere else.
Maybe if you're feeling pretty crappy in the forums, take a step back for a while, chat to some friends on here, stick to a positive group without contentious subject matter, or reach out to someone with a message and intro.
I really hope you're ok and send only good thoughts your way.
