  •  There is a very effective drug now (0+ / 0-)

    That treats opiate withdrawal symptoms. It completely eliminates all withdrawal symptoms, and while it is addictive, it is far less so than methadone or opiates themselves.
    It is called Suboxone. For opiate addicts, it is a miracle drug. I've seen it work.
    It doesn't treat the addiction, that requires group support and therapy and different approaches for different people.
    But it DOES treat withdrawal, and really, really, well. It can also be used for long periods of time without building tolerance and is safe for long term use.
    For any addicts who are trying to kick, check it out. It works. Suboxone. Only problem is, it costs about 2 dollars per milligram, about the same as heroin.
