Information SO useful. Both my brothers opioid addicts for over 40 years. One died from it. The other managed to overcome it. Everyone knows someone that has struggled with this or they themselves are struggling with it. Very compassionate is not a personality defect. This addiction changes the brain chemistry and abstinence NOT the best treatment. Methadone and suboxone better recovery treatments and a very good explanation of why this is so. 40% to 90% recovery for those that use methadone or suboxone. Prison is not the answer. Supervised injection or methadone and suboxone is the answer for now. $1 spent on recovery saves $7 spent on jails or emergency room visits. I really appreciated the statement these people's lives are valuable. I wish every adult in the USA would watch this film.
