I don't know what else you can expect WWE to do. They can't force the wrestlers to go into rehab, but I'd say they do just about everything short of that. When Regal had his problems, they paid his way through rehab. They gave Guerrero a second chance after he cleaned himself up. They repeatedly told Jeff Hardy and Crash Holly to clean themselves up, terminating them only when they refused to do so. Road Dog and Brian Christopher were also popular performers, but drugs cost them their jobs too. If a guy can't make the right choice between letting the company support them while they clean up or letting their lifestyle cost them their job, there's nothing WWE can do.
I'll cut myself short there because this thread was supposed to be acknowledging the passing of Jerry Tuite. I wish nothing but the best for those close to him in this tough time.
