destigmatize through detox?




Ohio seems like it's getting over the anger and into the solution when it comes to dealing with addiction: providing measures of treatment even if it means short term stay and attention to addiction other than jail or prison. After reviewing comments, the accumulation of anger towards the costs undertaken by these options seem alarming to the 'bloggers' yet is a minute representation of the trillions lost in productivity, health and overall social costs of addiction. The fact that a heroin conference in Ohio had 83 of 88 counties assisting shows that they can no longer ignore it: heroin addiction is an epidemic and that includes pharmaceuticals that are opiate based. Heres to those wanting to attend a problem rather than shoving it aside.
