Mounting figures for known drug addicts in Great Britain have brought in their wake panic, misinformation and administrative muddle-headedness. The addicts themselves, thinking and feeling human beings, are in danger of being forgotten as the hysteria increases. This is tragic, not only for the addicts but also for the society which has produced them and which should be trying to help them. Statistics are useful but solve no problems. Legislative attemtps to remedy the situation can only be hopeful if the addict himself is considered and if his reactions and his way of life are understood. If the wrong decisions are made now for the treatment of drug addiction, the results may be as overwhelmingly dangerous as the have been in the United States.
