EQUATING LIFE-SAVING WITH "CODDLING":

From Worcester, Mass., news of fierce opposition to a bill that would support expansion of a program to train "peers" to provide a narcotic antagonist, Narcan, to save lives in cases of overdose (Telegram and Gazette, 14 June). Such intervention has been documented as effective in saving lives, but opponents denounce it as "coddling" and "giving a false sense of hope" to drug users. Go figure!

Have you ever heard of Tropical Oasis treatment Center in Costa Rica? They have a great program for opiate addiction, take it from me. They deal with all other types of addictions as well
