Addicts in St. Louis Celebrating Their Recovery This Christmas
Writing at Huff Post, author Ritchie Farrell looked at how the lives of five former addicts were changed for the better by Naltrexone – a relatively under-used drug in the battle against opioid addiction:
How did five heroin addicts from St. Louis, Missouri do it? How are they celebrating Christmas heroin free?
What if I told you that their answer and maybe even the answer to crushing the worst health crisis in America’s history could be a drug that has been sitting on the shelves of pharmacies across America for more than 30 years?
What if I told you that the reason it sits on the shelf is that Big Pharma, their lobbyist, and political hacks in the United States Government are raking in millions of dollars a year by keeping it on the shelves?
Farrell goes on to compare Naltrexone with Methadone and Suboxone, questioning the wisdom of why Methadone and Suboxone are seen as viable treatments when they are opioid based:
We must do better than administering opioids to opioid addicts as the End Game. Do we treat alcoholics with a daily dose of alcohol?
On the other hand, Naltrexone is not an opioid. Naltrexone is not addictive.
Are you or a loved one struggling with addiction, lying to yourself and others? Don’t wait any longer to ask for help. In today’s environment, you never know when your next dose will be your last!
