Drug Implants or Inpatient Drug Rehabs?

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Seriously, the drug companies continue to go beyond the realms of reason.  Now there is a study that was publised about giving opiate addicts implants of the drug Suboxone under their arms to try and bypass the oral medication route.  Of course there is some short-term benefit of the amount of heroin or other painkiller being taken when their body is already being supplied a drug!  That’s a no-brainer!  But what about when the implants wear off and they start to have withdrawal symptoms again – then what?

Exactly – most will go back to using the other drugs again.  Now, a real solution would be a successful drug rehabilitation program that could provide effective drug addiction treatment – something of the long-term inpatient rehab variety, and something that DID NOT GIVE THEM MORE DRUGS!
