I am sometimes frustrated by the way that addiction is treated in the UK, which is why I was delighted to have an article published in the latest issue of Druglink, the magazine by Drugscope.

After reading a few months ago that more money than ever is being poured into giving people with alcohol problems medication to stop them drinking, rather than tools to deal with their problem on a long-term basis, I wrote an article called 'Pills, Thrills and a Bellyache'.

I have had special permission from Drugscope to republish the article, so if you want to know what I consider better treatment options for addicts, do take a look at the article here.
