Medical science recognizes no such thing as "enabling". Most would call it simply caring. Has its origins in AA propaganda. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 02:03, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Medical science has it´s limit. It is not a science about of all aspects of human behavior. Compare with a car; the repair manual for the car do not give not all information about cars, how people use them, their impact on the society etc. Dala11a (talk) 00:21, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
It has some currency in some psychology-related fields, e.g. counseling, and can be sourced as such. Agreed it's not a medical term (unless something's changed recently). The AA connection sounds plausible but needs sourcing. I think the positive use is probably original research, or at best a disused synonym of the main topic that points to. We needn't cover it here except as a WP:HATNOTE. — SMcCandlish ☺☏¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ᴥⱷʌ≼ 14:52, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
This article needs to be split. This is completely useless. We do not cover two directly opposite meanings of a word in the same article, or there's no way to use it in links without confusing people. This has to forked and disambiguated. — SMcCandlish ☺☏¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ᴥⱷʌ≼ 13:42, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
