Prescription Heroin Therapy in the UK
A trial in 127 addicts who had persistently failed to quit the drug showed a significant drop in use of "street" heroin after six months.
Writing in The Lancet, the researchers said the "robust evidence" supports wider provision of heroin treatment.
A spokesman for the government said it would consider the findings.
He said the latest study plus a series of other trials now provide clear evidence that this type of treatment should be offered more widely.
It was outlined in the UK government's 2008 Drug Strategy, subject to the results from this trial.
He added that although more expensive than conventional treatments, heroin therapy is considerably cheaper than imprisonment.
A Department of Health spokesman said any approach that gets people off drugs for good should be explored.

I love how in the caption it states, "Heroin is highly addictive," then they talk about prescribing it to get people off drugs. I guess its a lot easier these days to get a population hooked on heroin. Look what these same people and their British East India Company fore-bearers, now operating as the Committee of 300, did to China prior to the Opium Wars.
Coincidentally, the opium/heroin is coming from the same place: Afghanistan. Ain't it funny how all that works out. Its called the New World Order, do some research, b/c your next to get pumped full of heroin. This time instead of priests with dime bags in their bibles, they got eugenicists in lab coats and needles.
