Medication Assisted Treatment Can Save Lives

/By

We recently sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to discuss Probuphine, a new formulation for delivery of buprenorphine hydrochloride in the treatment of opioid addiction. the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids strongly supports the development and availability of tested medications that can help significantly in the treatment of opioid addiction, and are resistant to diversion and abuse.

Read the letter to the FDA here.

    To the Partnership, I am all for what you are advocating ,but working with addicts for 20 plus years ,makes me believe that there is no such thing as medications that are diversion and abuse resistant. Victoria is the closest I’ve seen, but if something can be implanted then , it can be removed.

    Get a job . Did you get subsidized for buying the drugs? It is cheaper to get clean than it is to maintain addiction.Getting a job and taking responsibility for your financial responsibility is one very major step in normalizing your life that will help you to maintain sobriety.
