An Alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous
I think this story might inspire public health officials to "think outside the box" when contemplating solutions to our national drug and alcohol addiction problems. Too often we place addicts in rehab where, unfortunately, there's an extremely high recidivism rate. So far that's proved to be the most effective way of dealing with addiction. After reading that article, I'm starting to wonder if owls aren't the way to go--attack owls. I truly think users could kick their habits if they were supervised by owls that would swoop down on them if they tried to use. Have their been any studies on this? Is anyone in the mental health field that can share this idea with other doctors? Let's get on this, people.
