I'd say yes. Being an addict I can say though I don't like people pointing out my addiction, or telling how i need to get clean. But, it would be motivational to know somebody cares and worries about me. A lot of addicts fall deeper into the lifestyle they are living because they feel no one cares. I often feel that if I had someone to check on me, or at least care enough to try and help me I can beat this thing. Most people get detoured from checking in with their addict friends because they don't like to be told "stop judging me" or "you have no idea what I'm going through." They don't realize, that friend needs to hear the outside perspective whether it is received at that moment or not.
