To follow up on this, I was under the care of an excellent private clinic here in the Uk, who only chrged £60 a month. Rapid detox with Naltrexone was somewhat more expensive, but they pioneered the procedure, which is not availble on the NHS. When it comes to fatalities, they are inevitable sadly, but compared with any NHS clinic, their rate was less than 10% of the useless, stupid NHS outfits when considering deaths per patient! Yet still, the Home Office, BMA and government did their very best to shut the place down, making life as difficult as they could for clinic and patients alike. Fortunately, their excellent record of low fatalities, far higher, permanent detox levels, and low numbers of people slipping back into their bad old ways, made the clinic unassailable. I am utterly appalled at the ridiculous prices charged in the USA!
