But what if the clinics makes things worse by enabling addictions? The first thing any relative of an addict is taught that they must not enable the addiction because enabling the addiction prolongs the addiction. Why would SIS be any different? Everyone wants to jump on the "lives saved" statistic because it is easy to measure and makes great headlines, however, it is a smoke screen. To make progress we must save lives by getting people clean.

Now your "logic" seems to suggest people go to a SIS to become addicted. Here's a hint: they go there because they are already addicted. And they don't just get supervision that helps keep them alive, they also have access to counseling to help them to beat their addiction. Your silly notion would simply cause more people to die.
