Harbor Village Detox comments on a recent article published by the Huffington Post about synthetic opiate treatments for drug addiction.

Buprenorphine is a replacement for heroin, and is almost impossible to overdose on without the presence of medical complications

There’s a black mark on the face of effective drug treatment, and it’s not what one might think of as treatment. Drugs like Suboxone, methadone, and buprenorphine are all synthesized with the intent to help drug addicts recover from addiction; yet with a society bent on abstinence treatment, there are many that are taking to the streets to buy life saving drugs to get clean, according to the Huffington Post on Jan. 28th. In the same article, they said in 2009 researchers found that those who buy suboxone on the street did so in an attempt to get sober, because of the inavailability of the drug. The goal is harm reduction. Drugs aimed to curb substance abuse are frowned upon by Narcotic Anonymous members because they believe that any medications prevent addicts from being “sober.” Harbor Village Detox is an inpatient rehabilitation facility that is committed to providing their patients with superior detoxification treatment, allowing recovered patients to reclaim their lives from addiction forever, and support medical drug treatment.

Buprenorphine is a replacement for heroin, and is almost impossible to overdose on without the presence of medical complications, said the Huffington Post on Jan.28th.

A Harbor Village Detox associate says, “There is a slow growing opposition from those who encourage medical drug treatment; more and more people are becoming open as heroin relapses are becoming staples of supposed ‘drug rehabilitation’ and ‘drug therapy’ Officials and medical professionals want answers to save their patients, and cannot let ethics that have no scientific backing influence national law. As a proponent of medical drug treatment, I can attest that the physical gauntlet of addiction makes it almost impossible for addicts to recover without the help of medication. And like Motrin for a fever, it’s not a permanent thing. It’s not right to deny people medicine, and force them to buy it illegally.”
