-->'''Rick''': To be honest, I'm only realizing this now. I was addicted to a drug. And even though I've beaten that, I know I still have an addictive personality. There's nothing I can do to change it. But nothing's perfect. Including us. So I looked for something else to get addicted to. Like the rush of saving lives. I live to help others now. In or out of this costume.

* A common tactic to treat heroin and other opiates addicts is to get them addicted to methadone. Going cold turkey on opiates is horrible and can lead to death from the withdrawal symptoms. (Music/AmyWinehouse died because she decided to go cold turkey on all of her addictions. The shock from that was enough to kill her since she already was unhealthy from the drugs.) The methadone is given in highly-regulated doses that are slowly decreased.

Unlike heroin, methadone does not induce a high, so methadone users can avoid withdrawal symptoms while developing a stable lifestyle.

** ''South Park'' goes farther to say that Alcoholics Anonymous is this in one episode. And you're powerless against the addiction. (This is actually a heavily-debated topic--numerous people have compared AA to a cult in RealLife.)
