So what is the turning point? I did not mean forced by a third party. I mean that somewhere down the line something would have happened to push them in the direction of recovery.

Again you show your naivety with your comment. Why would something have to happen down the line to push someone to seek help for a substance problem.
Are you saying that all substance users need an event to happen before they contemplate seeking support?
Are these people not able to recognise that a substance may be having some form of impact on their life and that they may either want to change or need to change?

What you are suggesting is that all users need some event to happen in their lives that would force them to move from a precontemplative state to a place where they are seeking help. Rather than a person self determining that this is not the pathway they wish to continue and opt for change.
 
When the OP made his first post, before anybody had replied, a question came to mind. As nobody has answered it and the subject hasn't yet been raised, I'll stick my head above the parapet.

What has this subject got to do with chemistry and therefore what relevance in a PhD that follows on from a 3 year pure science degree?

Had the OP spent 7 years (or whatever it is) studying Medicine and was now specialising on Pharmacology, I could understand a genuine professional interest.

Whatever happened to the old ARRSE procedure of a new poster starting a controversial thread being required to provide confirmation of their honest intentions to the COs?

Perhaps you may be better informed on military processes than I.. however it still doesn’t answer my question as to why so many people are caught within such a small time window.

I can only conclude that some people want to be caught or, and I’m hoping this wouldn’t be true of the armed forces, there is regular users among the ranks, thus extending the 96 hour time frame significantly.

Perhaps I’m being naive in assuming people value their careers more.

I remember reading one case where a soldier had admitted to using cocaine on a Friday night subsequently being tested on Monday for the result to come back as negative. Admittedly his individual metabolism would have played a part but I’ve seen this case after 36 hours in numerous studies.

Am I then to conclude that some people use more frequently than this. That is what is so shocking to me.

You’re making a lot of conclusions, where’s your evidence? Otherwise they are just assumptions and hardly worthy of a PhD as members of the public make assumptions about the Armed Forces.

Have you tried speaking to to the CDT teams or made FOI requests to the MOD?
Or would you like ARRSE to write the paper for you?

Yes I received a somewhat evasive response using new FOI however was somewhat useful. Also yes have made contact with LGC and Eurofins.

Indeed - I would be interested to know what the research field is that the OP is working on - PhD in Chemistry is a little vague - it just means that he is researching for a PhD in the chemistry department of a university somewhere. Quite what that has to do with the rates of drug use in any organisation is unclear. I would be more convinced if he had said he was doing research in Public Health.

@WhizKid89 - Care to share the prospective title of your thesis? That might give you some credibility with the cynical denizens of this site, and at least go some way to demonstrate that you are not a journo trawling for a story. Trust me, this site is like a North Yorkshire village. There is a lot of proving to do before you are even tolerated , let alone accepted.

Having worked in the substance misuse area for many years ( both medical and criminal) I find your statement widely off mark.
Most people seeking support for alcohol addiction are not forced in to help but are rather self referrals as they recognise they have a problem.

Your statement suggests to me that you are going to fail your PhD!

Tbf, most alkies in Baor and Rafg, only sought help in the naafi.
Only when confronted by hierarchy did they admit that 3 bottles of voddy a day, followed by an evening sesh was perhaps a slight problem.
Then it was off to Wegberg for 6 week drying out period.
Then back to unit and errr, straight down naafi and getting hammered.
The alky twats.

That is the first time I have heard the Senior Service referred to as a little sister to the Army.




This will not be the first time you are referred to as a cock.

Oh my word. In my short time on here I've learned how some people post, and which is why they'd never get away with having a sock account.

My suspicions here, are that it's someone who is shit, and travels on a bus. I may be wrong, but it smells like it.
 
Now you’ve done it, you’ve unleashed the beast snail.
