In response to Joey Thompson's column, it is wrong to exclude anyone 
from the Beyond 2008 conference.

However, abstinence programs are only one of a host of treatment 
plans, and only work for perhaps 10 per cent of the population.

Furthermore, I am not a cheerleader for harm reduction, but rather 
someone who believes in the Four Pillars approach.

I do not believe we can enforce our way out of what is essentially a 
medical problem.
