The True Status of Any Addict

An Addict Is a Victim of Some Drug

Supplier's Greed,

A Victim of the Lies Which Every

Supplier Tells
In An Effort to Satisfy that Greed,

 and Thus a Victim of Their Chemically

 Addictive & Hypnotic Drug Supplies.

Surveys over the last 50 years show that there is still a majority of Judges, Magistrates, Ministers, Politicians, Officials, Press and other Media Editors as well as the General Public, who have been well and truly conned into believing that addicts are stupid, criminal and to blame for their condition, when the truth is that addicts are victims of addiction, inflicted on them deliberately and sometimes incidentally – for criminal as well as commercial profit reasons.

We are falsely told by psychiatrists that addicts have “addictive personalities”, are told by alcoholic drinks distributors & pharmaceutical companies that addicts “abuse” alcohol and addicts “misuse” drugs.

Quite ludicrous, evil and misleading when you recognise that it is totally impossible to become addicted to a drug you never ever take, because, with the exception of alcohol, sugar and tobacco, it is the taking of two or more doses of any addictive drug which CREATES addiction !

It is because of their totally incorrect and jaundiced view of addicts that government policies over the last 68 years have mainly been directed against the addicts rather than against the alcoholic drink distributors, the addictive pharmaceutical drug producers & prescribers and the local criminal suppliers of illegal products, all of whose businesses make addiction possible and even certain.

All of these suppliers deliberately use the addictive nature of their products to create a lengthening list of consumers who must irresistibly demand daily or multi-daily doses in order to avoid the devastating cold-turkey aches, pains, vomiting, diarrhoea, anxiety & feelings of impotence which their attempts to quit using inevitably inflict upon them.

Adding to the usual commercial goals of the producers, governments see consumers and suppliers of alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceutical products as vast and vital tax-revenue sources, which governments will do anything to avoid losing – even preferring to see up to 5% of our population hopelessly and expensively addicted (as some 3 million currently are) to the ridiculous point where handling and compensating for those addicts likely costs more than the amounts collected in taxes.

Proof that Parliament is committed to taxing & punishing consumers rather than the suppliers who instigate addiction, lies in the fact that they are about to impose a new tax on addictive sugar, to offset the rising incidence and costs of treating body weight and obesity under the N.H.S.

If Westminster wants to cut sugar consumption, it should legislate against its production and limit its usage in a whole range of products and outlets.

As it should also do with alcohol and pharmaceutical products, where the legal production, distribution and consumption volumes MASSIVELY exceed the distribution and usage of ALL criminal drug supplies. (i.e. addictive pharmaceutical drug supply is 6 times greater than addictive criminal drug supply.)

For example, the U.K. has 2.4 MILLION N.H.S. funded “patients” living in their own homes or in care-homes who are involuntarily addicted to legally but excessively prescribed pharmaceutical drugs, which they take three or four times a day, at an overall cost of at least some £1,095 per patient per year. A total of at least £2.63 BILLION per annum.

But if they are “patients”- WHAT IS THE MEDICAL CONDITION FOR WHICH THEY ARE STILL BEING TREATED ? When they started “treatment” three months, one year or ten years ago, their problem might have been worry, grief, anxiety, depression, stomach-ache, tooth-ache, head-ache or pain from a healing injury, etc., etc.

But in 99 out of a hundred cases those conditions will have cleared up in a few weeks, and what they are now suffering from is not an illness or disorder, but merely “cold turkey” addiction withdrawal symptoms, when they go too long without their continuously addicting daily or 3 times a day prescribed benzodiazepines or opioid based pain-killing drugs, etc.

In addition, 180,000 former heroin addicts now on daily N.H.S. supplied
O.S.T. methadone, are reported by the Government's own National Audit Office to each cost the Exchequer over £47,000 per annum. Currently a total ANNUAL COST of £84.6 BILLION every year for up to 40 years.

On the other hand, it costs a ONCE ONLY fee of £29,000 to £39,000 per addict to bring 69+% of all methadone prescription users to lasting relaxed abstinence (on a guaranteed Payment by Results financing basis) using a residential addiction recovery training service already proven and available for 50 years, and today delivered at nearly one hundred Centres (including prison units) in 49 countries.

But in the U.K. we don't use this half century proven self-help addiction recovery training programme because our legal, political and media establishment have swallowed hook, line and sinker the totally false idea, put out for 65 years by drug producers and their psychiatric marketing arm, that the psycho-pharms are the only experts, that addiction is essentially incurable and that those who claim they can deliver recovery from addiction are ridiculous charlatans, and should not even be listened to or talked with.

So ever since the formation of the National Health Service in 1948, there has never been a year when any form of drug addiction – legal or criminal – actually fell, because the N.H.S. has no idea how to cure drug addiction, and proves this by either commissioning Service Providers to try and “rehabilitate” addicts, OR feeds addictive pharmaceutical drugs to addicts in order to stop them using criminally supplied drugs, a legal addiction for which the NHS also has no cure !

Restricting Supply”, “Reducing Demand”, “Building Recovery Locally” and “Supporting People to Live A Drug Free Life” are the main over-arching features of the 2010 Drug Strategy, which is still current today. 

To progress in THE RESTRICTION OF SUPPLY, it is essential, that we stop wasting our resources by committing them to fighting the so-called “War on Drugs” outside Great Britain.

The main reason that our local police do not have sufficient resources to handle our local drug-pushers is because we commit to expensively taking actions in Colombia, Afghanistan, Mexico and numerous other distant foreign locations, when the pipeline of supplies which stretches from those countries to our own pubs, school gates and clubs, etc., can be more easily, effectively and inexpensively CUT by taking zero tolerance action much closer to the users being supplied by that pipeline.

By initially in a sense mainly ignoring the foreign supply pipeline up to the local pusher and concentrating on home production suppliers, millions of £pounds plus millions of police, customs & excise hours can be saved and concentrated on the last link in the supply chain. i.e. THE LOCAL PUSHER / DEALER who has to reveal him or her self in order to do business with the addicted user (who is most sensibly, accurately and usefully regarded as the ADDICTION VICTIM who should be rescued rather than criminalised). 

The police target should be anyone producing or growing addictive supplies in the U.K. and anyone who is found in possession of more than one dose or more than a personal supply of one or more drugs.

Possession of a single dose of just one drug usually equals an addicted user who needs rescuing rather than criminalising.

Two or more doses, carried by the individual, or found in his or her car or at home, etc., most often equals “pusher” - the last link in the supply line – and he or she should be hit with every punishment available to the police, the prosecutors and the courts on a Zero Tolerance basis.

It doesn't matter if the supply line is one, ten, one hundred, one thousand or ten thousand miles long, the last link is to be found in every U.K. city, town or village, close to the user AND CLOSE TO A LOCAL BRITISH BOBBY.

Furthermore, that last link can be identified by the user (the pusher's client), and if that user knows the police are not after him or her, it is not going to be all that difficult to get the users' co-operation, especially, if instead of being criminalised, the user is offered anonymity and effective treatment for their addiction – which 70 to 75% want desperately to quit.

Even pushers can be offered an opportunity to be cured if it is clear that he or she is selling drugs solely to support their own habit.

But only if they are prepared to give up their own immediate supplier.

Working back down the supply line from the user towards the initial supplier works effectively only when the user is protected and rescued, and when government resources are diverted away from overseas spending and concentrated on local U.K. situations. 

To progress in REDUCING DEMAND we must stop making the mistake of interpreting demand reduction as the beefing up of “prevention and avoidance” which, although important is aimed at stopping the development of future demand and not at reducing current demand.


Non-users quite obviously don't !

So the only way we can possibly Reduce Demand is by bringing addicts to lasting relaxed abstinence, and for 50 years this has provably been best achieved by withdrawing addicts and training them in self help addiction recovery techniques.

It is not achieved by prescribing expensive addictive substitute pharmaceutical drugs to addicts. It is nowhere near achieved often enough by either residential or local daily 12 Steps groups, although local groups must not be ignored when affordability is a major barrier.

Fifty years of success and expansion confirm that self-help addiction recovery training on a three month residential basis leads to lasting relaxed abstinence in 55 to 69+% of cases.

To cure the approximately half a million U.K. addicts currently on criminal drugs and / or on O.S.T., and using the other two over-arching features of the 2010 Drug Strategy, (SUPPORTING PEOPLE TO LIVE A DRUG FREE LIFE, and BUILDING RECOVERY LOCALLY) is going to take 30 years if, over the next 4 years, we establish 100 addiction recovery training centres (nearly one per major local authority), each with accommodation for 25 students, plus 15 staff and executives.

The present total spending by “all government departments” involved in one or more aspect of addiction spending, reported by the government's National Audit office, is £8.46 BILLION EACH AND EVERY YEAR.

With 100 centres each with 25 or more student beds, turning out some 10,000 recovered addicts per year, the total cost with every centre in full operation would be only some £340 MILLION per annum – which is a ONCE ONLY cost of 4% of the current ANNUAL government reported inter-departmental spending on O.S.T. methadone alone !

But, for up to 40 years, our addiction affected Departmental Ministers between them go on spending EVERY YEAR, many many times the amount they would have to pay ONCE ONLY in order to cure all current U.K. drug addicts !

Even on the above basis it would take 30 years to cure the existing national group of illegal addicts, and of course in that period there would doubtless be new addicts getting hooked every month.

Why don't Ministers know this and do something about it. Are they mad, can't do simple arithmetic or are they themselves taking drugs ?

NO. None of these. Their problem is that they go on listening to and believing the downright lies which government psychiatrists and pharmaceutical company marketing departments tell them, in order to hold on to the millions of profitable “multi-daily-dose” addicts the Government are unwittingly paying the psycho-pharms to keep addicted !

If you really want to know why the National Health Service is financially crippled, you have only to look at the regularly increasing amounts of money being spent on addictive medication which cures nothing, AND SO NEVER REDUCES THE NUMBER OF “PATIENTS”.

And this is NOT because involuntary addiction is incurable. It is because the pharmaceutical companies who recommend small-dose step down gradual withdrawal from addictive prescription drugs, JUST DO NOT MANUFACTURE THE RANGES OF SMALL DOSAGE UNITS needed to apply this viable withdrawal procedure.

Instead of saying that they refuse to cut the throats of their own marketing men and their own profitability by helping to cure addiction, they say "small doses are too difficult and too expensive to manufacture and hold in stock."  Especially, they will also say, “because they are not in demand”.

So what is required is legislation to ensure that for every addictive and hypnotic drug a manufacturer makes, he must also produce dose units which are 2.5%, 5%, 10%, 20% and 50% of the size the manufacturer recommends as a “normal” dose.

This will stop 70 year old patients who are trying to withdraw from their addiction, from needing to cut tablets into 2, 4, 8, 16 and even 32 pieces, and also trying to perform similarly impossible daily exercises with the contents of powder or liquid capsules.

With 2.4 Million NHS patients involuntarily addicted to prescription drugs, there is a need for an organised approach to “Addiction Withdrawal Advisory Services and Help (AWASH),” and an organisation of that name, at the same address as the “Society for an Addiction Free Europe (SAFE)”, is able to recommend a plan which can be funded entirely from the savings to be made by reducing the massive over-spending on unnecessary prescription drugs.

Most forms of drug addiction and a majority of drug addicts are curable on a three month self-help residential addiction recovery training programme, costing ONCE ONLY some 60 to 80% of what the U.K. Government EVERY YEAR spends on OST prescribed methadone “therapy”, as a result of which the providers of such programmes have for 50 years been attacked, reviled and abused by criminal and pharmaceutical drug producers in an effort to avoid having their customers taken away by letting someone cure them !

But around the world those self-help recovery training providers go on expanding every year – solely because they deliver what they promise.
