       Blame It On The Alcohol (Revisited)
It's so convenient when someone has a ''drug" or "alcohol" problem because, then, those-in-charge can simply blame any other problems that person has in life on their "substance abuse".  Be it domestic, financial, employment, or what-have-you.

If that person is low on finances, can't make their rent or pay their bills, suffers social dysfunction or is in abusive relationships the experts simply "trace it all down to" substance abuse problems.

But should someone who doesn't "do drugs", drinks sparingly or occasionally, and who has no interest in gambling have any of those same problems as well, those-in-charge probably become pretty unnerved as they now have no plausible "explanation" for such extreme personal dilemmas.  They stand to be forced into actually examining individual situations and trying to find the REAL causes behind them, which can be quite self-incriminating for them as a lot of social problems are often the result of various acts of skullduggery on the part of a lot of the officious prima donnas who "run everything".

Then again, those-in-charge still have the rhetoric and mantras of "mental health issues" to fall back on.
