am truly becoming a recovery option skeptic. I was introduced to a yet another web site this morn called Turn to Help . This site offers treatment for opiod addiction.
TURN TO HELP makes the reader feel not along and states “Opioid dependence can affect men and women of all ages, races, ethnic groups, and educational levels. So, it can happen to anyone – a friend, a neighbor, a coworker, a spouse, a brother, a sister, or parent.”
It points the brotherhood of addicts to treatment and all the user has to do is enter their zip code. Nice and simple! I entered my zipcode and was given a list of Suboxone Doctors generated from Suboxone.com I entered another zip and was provided another list of Suboxone docs generated from Suboxone.com . Go figure.
Individuals and nations owe it to themselves and the world to become informed.

I looked back at the Turn to Help site and in a tiny font at the bottom of the page it mentions Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. Take a wild stab at what drug Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. produces and markets? If you said Suboxone, please step to the front of the class. You will be awarded a magnifying glass to read the tiny eight point fonts at the bottom of future recovery web pages.
Many friends have told me of the success of Suboxone to help their child with their opiate addiction. That is not my issue with the web sites above. The problem I have is that Turn to Help is not designed to offer alternative treatment options as I could not find any mention of Bill W., 12 steps, or a Higher Power. If you are in the business of selling drugs, as I parent I would ask that you be forthright about your motives when offering recovery. My child’s life and the lives of many other children depend on it. (Additionally I have been informed that youths are entering detox for suboxone dependence.)
In the end TURN TO HELP treatment options fattens the profit margin of Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. Profit margins, funding, and deception have become a theme I have seen far too often in the recovery world. Sad that so many are profiting on the health of our children.
By the way can anyone tell me who funds Partnership for Drug free. org?
peace and strength
