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.
And why do you keep demeaning the saving of lives as some sort of "bandwagon"? You're talking about lives FFS!

People who go to a SIS are offered counseling and ways to enter detox.
