Abstract Freud had stated that human judgments of value "follow directly ... wishes for happiness--that, accordingly, they are an attempt to support ... illusions with arguments." This paper argues that substance use/abuse/dependency treatment has been a failure because we understand little about eradicating the significant concerns associated with the use of chemicals that haunt mankind: ignorance, poverty, and crime. While technologies advance at dizzying speed, the human capacity to integrate new information and to achieve a quality life seems to evade many. The author presents her treatment regime which has helped some patients. But the psychologist is only one contributor to psychotherapy, habilitation and rehabilitation. It is advisable that each member of the professional and lay communities "tend to their own garden."
