    New treatment for opiod addiction

    I found it interesting and an excellent use of prolonged release implants. Basically the person in recovery gets 6 subcutaneous implants that deliver a constant dose of opiod replacement drugs, taking care of the physical addiction while they're in psych treatment for the mental aspects of addiction.
    The one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind wasn't king, he was stoned for seeing light.

    They used the same kind of tech for contraception in women and they were looking at the same kind of implants for males.

    It is a good idea, but sometimes it's the mental aspect of addiction that is harder to break.

    and share the same space for a minute or two
