WHAT A CON AND A DISGRACE !
THE ALL PARTY PARLIAMENTARY
GROUP FOR PRESCRIBED DRUG
ADDICTION IS OPENING A PHONE
“HELP LINE” FOR SUFFERERS
IN PLACE OF THE REAL SOLUTION !
With three million U.K. citizens who are innocent Prescribed Drug Addicts, it is at first sight heartening to learn that the above APPG is reaching out to help them.
But when you examine the list of organisations the APPG has signed up to its “initiative” you find no offer of participation by the only organisations which can actually deliver a cure for existing Prescribed Drug Addiction.
Life spoiling medically induced drug addiction can obviously be “prevented” by stopping the prescribing of addictive drugs. But it can only be “cured” by managed long term, small dose, step-down gradual withdrawal, based on maximum 5% step-downs at whatever time intervals the patient can comfortably confront.
This however necessitates the provision and easy availability of small doses of all the addictive medical prescription drugs. All the Benzos, the “C” drugs, the “Z” drugs and the anti-psychotics, etc., etc., etc.
AND WITHOUT AN EASILY AVAILABLE SUPPLY OF THESE SMALL DRUG DOSES, ANY STEP-DOWN WITHDRAWAL WILL INEVITABLY FAIL.
But the pharmaceutical companies don't want to make them for three reasons:
1) They say: “they are both difficult and expensive to make”, and,
2) They say: “they are costly to stock” and “in any event there is no call for them”, but the truth is that
3) Their main concern is that by helping effective withdrawal they will lose a valuable consumer, dedicated to their product by irresistible addiction, and guaranteed paid for by the N.H.S. A consumer they and their psychiatric running mates have worked long and hard to enrol as a lifelong easy income source.
As a result, without legislation to force the production of small doses suitable for comfortable step-down withdrawal, IT IS NEVER EVER GOING TO HAPPEN !
Is this because the Members of the APPG for Prescribed Drug Addiction are afraid of Big Pharma, or is it because some of them are part of Big Pharma, or is it because some of them rely on pharmaceuticals for part of their income, or is it because some of them value the pharmaceutical industries ?
In essence, it is for all four reasons.
National politicians amongst the APPG members value the employment opportunities and the taxes which the pharmaceuticals provide, and pharma factory bosses never hesitate to frighten local politicians with employee lay-off threats in order to defeat proposals they don't like.
Insofar as psychiatric and psychological APPG members are “pushers” of pharmaceutical drugs or are employed in pharma related jobs, they obviously have no wish to upset the apple-cart by supporting real and positive legislative measures if those measures are unacceptable to their pharma friends.
As a result, because of the above factors, much of the work of this APPG is focussed on pussy-footing around the Prescribed Drug Addiction problem in a manner calculated to look as if they are concerned whilst preserving the status-quo in terms of Big Pharma viability.
In other words it is no more than a P.R. exercise in mutual back-scratching, which will never produce the small doses that three million existing prescription addicts need in order to be able to comfortably withdraw from addiction, and which all U.K. taxpayers need in order to slash the overwhelming size of the N.H.S's huge and unnecessary drugs bills.
