Only the first of those enabling behaviors could partially be considered to come from SISs, in so far as we are protecting he addict from AIDs and/or death. I think that is a worthwhile compromise.
Great. So we are at the point where we agree there is a trade off. It would be challenging to actually quantify the actual effects of both factors. I am not convinced it is as small as you suggested given my experience with the addicts. They are masters at rationalization and justification. That said, my main concern is misdirection of resources because everyone is obsessing about SIS when detox beds are more important when it comes to getting people off drugs sooner.  How many deaths would be prevented if an addict could get a detox bed with 72 hours of asking for help?
