The Holistic Sanctuary Rebukes The New Republic’s Attempt to Destigmatize Buprenorphine and Suboxone
Date:12/2/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

The Holistic Sanctuary announces its rebuke concerning a recent column (“The Media Needs to Stop Stigmatizing Our Best Weapon Against Heroin Addiction”) in The New Republic, in which the writer urges his fellow journalists to reevaluate or stop their criticism about buprenorphine and suboxone.(1) Alec MacGillis, the author of the article, faults the New York Times for running their own (mild, in the judgment of The Holistic Sanctuary) two-day series about the toxic and lethal dangers associated with suboxone, as well as the overly aggressive marketing tactics of Reckitt Benckiser, makers of the drug.(2)

Mr. MacGillis also writes that buprenorphine “has proven so successful at allowing opiate addicts to feel normal and go about their lives that advocates hail it as something of a wonder drug.”(3) He concludes by attacking alarmist headlines about suboxone and subutex, saying: “It would be deeply unfortunate if fraught portrayals in the media with decidedly oversimplified, alarmist headlines had the side effect of dulling one of the best tools we have in this fight.”(4)

And yet, the column does not reference the straightforward, on-the-record dangers of suboxone, as documented by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The agency’s non-alarmist headline, titled “Information for Pharmacists,” states: “Significant respiratory depression has been associated with buprenorphine, particularly when administered intravenously. A number of deaths have occurred when addicts have intravenously misused buprenorphine, usually with benzodiazepines concomitantly. Deaths have also been reported in association with concomitant administration of buprenorphine and other depressants such as alcohol or other opioids.”(5)

These threats go well beyond a single news story or government repo
