a: addiction ~
b: a hydra


"If you've spent even a small amount of time in the trenches of substance abuse treatment, you know what goes into it. It's not a matter of treating just the drug or even the drug-specific behaviors; addiction is like a hydra, with different snarling heads burrowing into every aspect of a patient's existence. In essence, drug treatment becomes a matter of treating someone's life: work, family, living conditions, diet, and so on. "
