My concern is really just that, in the absence of a clear understanding of the mechanism of the compulsion, it is irrational to expect the compulsion to be controlled or stay controlled. That's the scary part -- that if you don't have a really good model of the compulsion, verified by someone proficient in the field, you don't know that you've actually knocked it off reliably, and it won't escalate in possibly exceptionally dangerous ways later. And concur with Beldaran's evaluation. Yes, you really do need a professional. If you want help making the call, we can do that.
