Add to this mess people whose families are controlling and a society that
does not care about that and you have a recipe for psychological
anxiety-producing events of such a magnitude we haven't seen in past ages.

Right. So what can the church do to help individuals and families deal with
these problems before the only thing left is to pick up the pieces? Drugs
offer us an incredible tool for dealing with acute problems, but they
shouldn't be the catch-all, "one-size-fits-all" solution. I'm not
advocating ignoring a doctor's orders, but shouldn't there be some concern
when large numbers of members need drugs to function?
