The Holistic Sanctuary Issues Response to The Irish Times About the Risks of Long-term Methadone Use
Date:10/29/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

The Holistic Sanctuary announces its response to a recent headline from The Irish Times concerning long-term methadone use as a form of ‘State-sponsored Social Control,’ as described by the paper’s headline.(1) This story comes amidst demands within the United States and Europe, where Irene Crawley, Director of the Hope project in Dublin says: “The irony is methadone is an opiate like heroin and you’re addicted to it.

The article from The Irish Times overlaps with data in the United States, compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), revealing that almost one-third of prescription painkiller overdose deaths involve methadone. Six times as many people died of methadone in 2009 (the most current year, for which the CDC has comprehensive numbers) than a decade before.(3) In fact, more than 4 million methadone prescriptions were written for pain in 2009, despite US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warnings about the risks associated with methadone.(4)

The CDC’s report is one of several concerning the risk of overdose from methadone, as part of the organization’s “Vital Signs” study. Based on an analysis of fatal methadone overdoses and the use of opioid pain relievers (OPR) in general, researchers conclude that methadone was involved in 31.4% of OPR deaths in the 13 states. It accounted for 39.8% of single-drug OPR deaths. The overdose death rate for methadone was significantly greater than that for other OPR for multidrug and single-drug deat
