You can't brush off entire fields of social science as hogwash without evidence, we don't even know the extent of this problem if there is one.
Except I am not saying it is "hogwash". In this thread I acknowledged the evidence that SIS reduce overdose deaths. What I question is the definition of success as defined as advocates. Saving lives is good but for every life saved how many languish longer in addiction because the SIS enable their addiction or because resources are being spent on SIS instead of expanding detox beds? None of the evidence I have seen addresses these concerns. The reason is most likely because of the bias I noted above. The researchers are keen to report areas of success while they play down the negative consequences.
