Gloucester's implementation of an amnesty program for those who turn in their drug paraphernalia is genius. The nation should use a similar approach for those seeking treatment in exchange for knowledge of drug dealers and heroin highways.

On July 7th Click Orlando reported on the CDC’s findings: those who are susceptible to heroin abuse and addiction typically abuse another addictive substance. Those who actively use cocaine are typically addicted to heroin, and those who smoke marijuana are three times as likely to try and become addicted to heroin. With rising overdose rates in the Orlando area, Drug Rehab Orlando has seen an influx of dual diagnosis patients: recovering addicts withdrawing and detoxing off of multiple substances who may or may not have mental illnesses compounding their substance use disorder.

Click Orlando assesses the availability and increased popularity can be attributed to the closure of pill mills, making heroin the go-to substance for addicts to get their opiate fix. Drug Rehab Orlando is a drug treatment facility in Orlando helping those with drug and alcohol use disorders recover safely. The addiction treatment center asserts law enforcement officials may garner the information they need from those seeking recovery, in exchange for amnesty.

An associate from Drug Rehab Orlando comments, “Gloucester's implementation of an amnesty program for those who turn in their drug paraphernalia is genius. The nation should use a similar approach for those seeking treatment in exchange for knowledge of drug dealers and heroin highways. If the object of zeroing in on a source of the heroin in Orlando is made too complicated by elusive dealers, what better way to circumvent the issue by getting people treatment, preventing unnecessary incarceration, and more likely moving in on key players in the field who have been able to elude law enforcement officials?

”As we become more progressive about drug laws in the nation, more resources will begin to open up to recovering addicts. As of right now, many treatment centers are at full capacity, and many people are turned on to heroin every day as a result of their addiction to opiate prescription medications. We must become a cohesive community to successfully address the problem.”
