Yes that is a very good explanation! Also odd though was that on one at SG1 commented on this.
: The team goes to an opium palace and spends half the episode tripping on a giant lava lamp. They were the lucky ones though as another whole team dies from going cold turkey. They are cured after spending three weeks in rehab, presumably doing work sent through the gate by Hammond so they don't die of boredom. I would have liked to have seen O'Neill treating Hammond like room service and ordering all manner of things to eat and occupy himself with.
