Heroin Use May Reduce In Zurish, Study Says

An alternative heroin policy made in Zurish, led young people to name heroin as a loser drug - a Lancet study finds. Zurich's heroin policy//, which includes providing alternative narcotics and needle exchange programs, has led to fewer users as young people start to consider the substance ‘loser drug,’ a Lancet study said.

Researchers at the Psychiatric University Hospital in Zurich said: The policy provides an alternative narcotics and needle exchange programs due to which the number of new heroin users in the Swiss state of Zurich falls 82 percent by 2002.The government introduced a more liberal policy in 1991.

By the start of a more lenient policy by the government, ‘Heroin have been become an fading drug and lost its attraction’, Carlos Nordt and Rudolf Stohler wrote in the study.

‘Needle Park’ a new name to Zurish since 1980 due to public drug use was now abandoned. The state government now provides safer place, exchange needles, and drugs that mimic heroin like methadone or buprenorphine. drugs that mimic some of heroin's effects. Mandatory health insurance covers treatment costs and patients can choose any doctor they want.

The U.K’s Policy of constructing of drug consumption rooms was under trial.Critics from policy makers, includes the new policy may even will provide heroin itself and it would lead to more drug users.

In the New South Wales, Australia, or in Italy, the number peaked in 1990, but in Zurich there is a decline by a factor of four in the number of new users.

Researchers led by Matthew Hickman at the University of Bristol in the U.K. showed there's no cause-and-effect relationship between the government's policy and the decline in new heroin users.
