We found the interrelation between poor living situation and substance abuse through experiment in 1970s. A Canadian psychologist, Bruce K. Alexander discovered that rats living in isolation and darkness decide to consume drug-infused water instead of normal water and instantly becoming addicted. In the same experiment, rats that were put in an open with other rats, hardly any chose to drink the drugged water. This simple case demonstrates how essential is to have interaction, support and exercises that supply an empty place many choose the substances in order to fill.
"Along with this understanding comes a much greater emphasis on attempting to establish addicted people in a welcoming community, thereby reducing their need for addictive compensations." Psychologist Bruce K. Alexander on Rat Park experiment
