The Serbian Orthodox Church has blessed the opening of new church-run centers to treat those struggling with substance abuse.

From the article:
Quote
In the agreement, the Church pledged to continue implementing a programme called “Zemlja Zivih” – “land of the living”. This therapeutic programme, running since 2005, comprises seven centres, which the Church says are treating some 20 to 30 addicts at the moment.

Lord have mercy.

In the book The Mountain of Silence, an Anthonite monk now bishop in Cyprus also started a center for addicts.
Apparently, the monks were quite successful when the addicts were required to participate as fully as possible in the monastic life with manual labor and prayer.
