The Holistic Sanctuary Rebuts Boston University Advocating the Use of Naloxone to Combat Heroin Addiction
Date:11/27/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2013

The Holistic Sanctuary announces its analysis and critical review of a Boston University (BU) funded study advocating the use of naloxone to treat heroin addiction. The report ("An Overdose Lifeline: Med Prof's Controversial Plan Reduces Opioid Overdose Deaths”) from BU Today features the work of Alexander Walley, a BU School of Medicine assistant professor and the medical director of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s Opioid Overdose Prevention Pilot Program.(1) The profile of Professor Walley notes that, at BU, more than 100 researchers have been awarded over $130 million in addiction-related research and services grants since 2006, and faculty currently direct over 50 funded addiction-related research projects.(2)

The two-part online series about Professor Walley’s work, which emphasizes the use of Narcan (which is a trademarked version of naloxone) as the principal means of treating heroin addiction, has, in the judgment of The Holistic Sanctuary, a possibly devastating oversight: There is no mention of the fact that naloxone contains suboxone; the latter consists of four parts buprenorphone and one part naloxone.(3) Failure to disclose this fact, in the expert opinion of The Holistic Sanctuary, overestimates the efficacy of naloxone while neglecting the toxic and potentially deadly threats associated with suboxone, as revealed last week by the New York Times.(4) The drug is now the 26th most prescribed medication in the United States, with sales (as of 2012) of $1.55 billion.(5)

By claiming to “literally bring people back to life” with Narcan, Professor Walley makes no reference to the dangers of suboxone, nor does he acknowledge international criticism relating to Narcan in general.(6) According to Dr. Alex Wodak, a retired addiction specialist
