    You don’t think nicotine replacement works? Do you understand how nicotine
    physically addicts a person?

    My first impression, too. Schuster has a Ph.D in psychology, which in this
    case is OK – NIDA is a purely political instrument. In the 1980s, the
    primary treatment for ‘drug abuse’ was the revolving-door one-size-fits-all
    12-step program; at least this video shows attempts to change this monopoly
    with individual treatment and properly evaluated medicines.

    From the side panel: “Nicotine patches or gum… can help persons addicted
    to nicotine.” This was a marketing ploy to sell snake-oil to desperate
    addicts. Nicotine replacement has never been proven to work. Zyban
    (Wellbutrin) worked for me, but I could only get it for 90 days (it is
    approved for smoking cessation in Australia, not as an antidepressant).

    “10. Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective. Sanctions or
    enticements in the family, employment setting, or criminal justice system
    can significantly increase treatment entry, retention, and success.” How
    horrible. Clearly this training video from the 80s, isn’t valid anymore, as
    we already know that such forced treatment, often only leads back to
    addiction. And you must also be aware, that forced treatment, skews the
    statistics, and forces some people who didn’t need treatment.

    I will. My comment was based on the description, and a quick overview of
    the video.

    point. Most if the speakers are drugged or need to be .

    I’m sure people use drugs for different reasons but I know a lot of people
    do them just because they like to get high. You can’t just generalize a
    single reason why every drug user in the entire world does what they do but
    I think the majority of people who do drugs do so basically because either
    they like the way they feel when they’re high, or because they liked the
    way drugs made them feel at one time but now only continue to use because
    they’re addicted.

    people do drugs because they like them and like the way they make them
    feel. there, i solved the big mystery.

    I use nicotine replacement every time I quit smoking and it works every
    time!

    Not saying we shouldn’t send people with serious drug problems, to
    treatment… But some of the methods described here, remind me of the
    brainwashing and molding techniques that a cult uses on it’s members. But a
    bigger problem, is probably that so many people are forced into rehab
    treatment, when they didn’t need it; Simply because the Judge didn’t know
    any better, or had a moralist ego above the accused.

    life .drugs are a armour to hide behind a defence mechanism

    What kind of religious organization kills pets? Former CoS agent Steve
    Fishman confirms that CoS attorney Ken Moxon ordered OSA agents Lenny
    Leibowitz and Clarice Guidice to drown a dog. Through a coordinated effort,
    Lenny and Clarice managed to arrive at Judge Ronald Swearinger’s
    (Scientology vs Wollersheim) house. Lenny threw the Collie “Duke” into the
    pool and “sat on the dog” until the dog drowned. Just one of many examples
    of Scientology killings pets to intimidate.

    NikoKun, did you watch the entire video? There is no obligation to watch
    the entire video. I just think it would help with your comments if you
    watched the entire video.

    So if it’s a public health issue, why do they send people to jail instead
    of a hospital>

    You don’t think that people do drugs because of how good they make them
    feel? That’s fucking ignorant.
