In my opinion the facts that are ignored by society which impacts all aspects of addiction(beliefs ,ligalities , treatments)are that addiction is a disease similar to all other diseases (e.g.diabetes)and we can not and should not put a diabetic for example in jail,degrading treatment centers,expensive treatment centers ,just because they need Insulin.I am surprized that the public,polticians,health care professionals are not outraged by the way things are in our society.Secondly the cells of the brain that produce certain chemicals known as neurotransmitters degenerate or atrophy(shut down) after longterm useage of drugs the current view is that they can not regenerate which is not true.Therfore treatments must be geared towards offering hope(not saying that you are always an addictand only god can help you)and regnerating,transplanting or awakening these cells.I have put together such a program and will share it with you soon ..................refuse all the labels and concepts and remember you and your brain can change direction any time you choose.
