In your article “Doctors slow to sign up for best treatment,” you didn’t answer the questions that doctors have about this treatment for opiate addiction. Such as: How long does the patient have to be on the medication, and if it’s to be for a long period of time, how is that different than simply trading addictions? At what monetary cost? Who is going to pay for it, and will the doctors be reimbursed for their intensive and frequent followups on the patient? Won’t it be essentially a government subsidized drug distribution program? Many drug addicts are also alcohol addicts, so what will be done about that since alcohol is to be not taken during therapy?
A much more informative article is at: https://americanaddictioncenters.org/suboxone/getting-off-heroin/ that is MUCH more factual, and honest about this treatment without painting resisting doctors as not wanting to deal with “those people.”
