Personally recently diagnosed with bipolar and general anxiety disorders... medications are making a HUGE difference in my life. My job performance is improved, my personal relationships are better... but, I ended up getting the diagnoses only AFTER developing my faith and choosing to leave behind destructive addictions - in other words, to me, both are correct. Brain chemistry can make it HARDER for a person to live within social boundaries, but a person has to accept those boundaries and choose to live within them before medication, counseling, therapy, whatever, will do any good.
Hopefully, the most important and underappreciated aspect of this whole episode with Ben turns out to be the "intensive behavioral counseling", and if he does indeed suffer from a personality disorder, the high priced doctor hired by the team or league helps fix it.
Read an article in SI last year about Zack Greinke, the reigning AL Cy Young winner for those of you non - baseball fans, and how the Royals helped him deliver on his promise by getting him treatment for anxiety disorder, turning him from the 5 - 17, 5.50 ERA bum he was in '06 to the practically unhittable beast he was in '09. In fixing his issues between his ears through therapy and medication, they helped him realize his potential.
If we can just turn Ben into a responsible citizen, I'll take it.
