Addicted to golf? That's what they're hoping for, in Britain:
Junkies are being offered rounds of golf at the taxpayers' expense under a drugs rehabilitation programme.

Drug users have been kitted out with free shoes, gloves and clubs through the Drugs Intervention Programme (DIP).

....Since the scheme was launched, there has been a significant fall in crime with the number of offences such as theft, robbery and burglary dropping by 27 per cent amongst those on the scheme.

....The DIP Partnership bought two sets of golf clubs and other equipment after coming to an agreement with Hartlepool Power Station to use the nine-hole course at the Tees Road plant.
