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.
And how effective is this counselling? What percentage of addicts go into detox after a referral by the SIS? How does this compare to communities with outreach programs but no SIS? Is there evidence that addicts are less likely to enter detox if a SIS is available? These are all very reasonable questions but are ignored because people want to jump on the "lives saved" bandwagon and don't really care about the complicated, expensive and harder to measure question of recovery.
