The results show different approaches on how to become an addict and how it should be treated between the social workers and the counselors in substance abuse care. It was also a disagreement on which organization the treatment responsibility laid on when it came to treatment outside the substitute treatment.

Many things could though have easily been handled if both sides have had clear rules and standard procedures. (Less)
