Reply to New York Times article, “Overdoses on the Rise.”

img_0805Nearly a day goes by without a media mention of opioids. On December 22, Dr. Martha Grout’s comments were published in the New York Times. Click here to read her comment on the New York Times website.

And click here for the references on her website to the neurorecovery program:

Dr. Grout wrote, “Do we somehow really believe that treating one addiction (heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone…) with another similar addictive drug (legal methadone) is going to solve any kind of problem with addiction? What if we just took the bull by the horns and actually treated addiction through neurorecovery and simultaneous withdrawal? Once the drugs are out of the system it becomes possible to deal with that which caused them to be prescribed in the first place – and I’m not just talking opiates. We see similar – albeit less obvious – issues with all the psychotropic drugs, the bentos, the antidepressants… the list goes on… First treat the body – get rid of both the drugs AND the cravings. Then treat the root of the problem. Neurorecovery is possible, and not especially difficult. It just takes willingness to spend the time and the money. Willingness is the key.”
