Your thoughts on drug abuse in academia?
There were many articles posted a week ago about the poll Nature conducted on scientists. The poll showed that many scientists use drugs (mainly methylphenidate and modafinil)to enhance their ability to concentrate. Here is one such article:…

Even the prolific mathematician, Paul Erdos, took copious amounts of amphetamines, and said that the world lost a lot of good math the one month he went without it (due to a bet with a friend). I often wonder how much more productive he would have been had he been using amphetamines before the age of 60.

These are all adults of course who use these drugs, and understand both the benefits and consequences of using them. More concentration from scientists generally result in the betterment of society, and it’s not like the world of sports where you compete against each other (hence why drug abused is banned for sports).

All the following provide rehabilitation to alcoholic priests.

1. The Paulist Fathers run Friendship House
Friendship House is a treatment facility for alcoholic priests and brothers located in Mangalore, a city in the southern west coast of India.

2. The Order of Servants of the Paraclete runs the Vianney Renewal Center
The Servants of the Paraclete claims to be the only Catholic religious order in USA devoted to ministering to broken priests and brothers. The Vianney Renewal Center is a faith-directed supportive community for priests and brothers who are desirous of living their priesthood, even though they may not be able to engage in active ministry for personal, health-related, psychological, social or canonical reasons. The Vianney Renewal Center is located in Dittmer, Missouri, USA.

3. Fr. Stephen J. Rossetti (a priest of the Diocese of Syracuse, New York) runs the Saint Luke Institute
The Saint Luke Institute is a licensed, private residential facility specializing in promoting the health and well-being of women and men religious, clergy and others involved in church ministry.
It is located in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA.

4. Catholic lay persons run the Southdown Institute.
The Southdown Institute treats Catholic clergy, religious and other clergy for psychological and addiction problems. Each person who goes to Southdown must be sponsored by a religious community or diocese. The Institute is located in Aurora, Ontario, Canada.

5. Catholic lay people run Guest House
Guest House provides treatment to Catholic priests, deacons, brothers, seminarians and women religious with alcoholism, other chemical dependencies and related problems. The centre in Rochester, Minnesota is for priests and male religious and the one in Lake Orion, Michigan is for women religious.

6. The National Catholic Council on Alcoholism and Related Drug Problems, Inc. (NCCA) is affiliated with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
The NCCA is committed to assisting its members to a greater awareness and acceptance of alcoholism, other chemical addictions and prevention issues. It is based at the Guest House facility at Lake Orion.

I note that you ask others to find the answer. I retort that you could have looked for it yourself. I also note the comment on google that Southdown Institute, Guest House and NCCA were not the answers that you wanted. Well, if what I have supplied is still inadequate, then you’ll have to go whistle.
