REDUCING re-offending and breaking the cycle of addiction and crime is the aim of a new service appointed and funded by Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens.

From April, Avon and Somerset will have the first single cross border arrest referral service in the country for drug and alcohol addicts.

The aim is to treat more people to reduce re-offending.

Heroin and crack cocaine are terrible addictive opiates, but it is the treatments for heroin and crack cocaine that are even worse and where they are inhuman treatment as addicts perpetuate until death usually with these regimes.

The problem with all western governments is that they are overridingly influenced by the ultra-financially powerful pharmaceutical giants. So much so that they control government policy on hard drug treatments and where of course they supply methadone et al that provides billions of dollars in revenues. But they don't care about the harm that this treatment does and only look at the bottom-line. That is why this maintenance treatment policy goes on infinitum as it creates vast profits for big Pharma. Indeed governments go out to suppress all information concerning a 'cure' for these terrible treatment drugs that enslave addicts for life through dependency. There is no humanity in this form of treatment only profits as addicts spend a lifetime on treatments that are more addictive than the drugs they purportedly try to eradicate. But wouldn't it be good for once that a western government did something out of the ordinary and stopped supporting big Pharma and introduced a 'cure' that is available at a cost of a mere 10% of present treatment regimes. Then addicts would come off hard drugs for good and thereafter lead a normal life in society and give something back. But will a single western government rebel against the powerful pharmaceutical cartel, I very much doubt it as they have our politicians and leaders in their back pocket. That is what is called democracy where big
business rules supreme. For an introduction of what is going on and the 'cure' that is available readers should visit -
