Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

In the past few decades many people have naively followed down the path of chemical treatments for both real and imagined diseases, illnesses and disorders. Often this is done without knowing the truth about the causes of their ailments, what kind of safe remedies are available or what the adverse reactions are of their newly prescribed drugs.
This is often the case with drug addiction and pharmacotherapy. Opiate addiction, for example, spans more than a century. In an effort to handle dependence on this central nervous system (CNS) depressant, “experts” began to market other drugs as cures through the timeline to present day such as morphine and heroin. Today methadone clinics are found all over the country for this same reason. The main problem is that the problem is never solved and the individual is still addicted to the same type or similar drug.
A person addicted to drugs can display many types of abnormal behavior, ranging from depression to anxiety to psychosis and dementia. The same field of “experts” continues to try to put people on more drugs for these symptoms and many others. What’s worse is that each patient will end up on several new drugs without first trying to stop the addiction, which will handle the symptoms by itself in most cases.
The trend continues with antipsychotic drugs. In the last three and a half years, the increase in antipsychotic prescriptions rose by more than 85 percent, with the sharpest increase being in the 1-10 year-old age group. Does this mean that every year millions more people become crazy and we’ll end up as a whole nation on drugs? Definitely not, but it appears that it could be the intentions of some, as with this example there are now nine different categories of symptoms where antipsychotic drugs are being used, even non-psychotic “disorders.”
“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”
It is intriguing how many of these damaging drugs also magically find new uses in totally different settings and circumstances. One only needs to periodically check national media sources to find the latest financed studies that indicate one drug could possibly be used as treatment for a different ailment than it was approved for, though it was safe for neither to begin with in most cases.
Generations ago, our forefathers didn’t have the benefit of modern science to create new pharmaceuticals to combat the ever-increasing types of diseases, yet they still flourished and prospered. One would think that the ‘chicken or the egg’ analogy applies to some current afflictions and their drug treatments.
With regards to drug addiction, there is at least one group that believes in the full rehabilitation of the individual instead of the latest drug patch. The Narconon Drug Rehabilitation and Education Program is based on research and developments by American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The Narconon program has been extremely successful in helping people to overcome addiction for over three decades and millions recognize the effectiveness of the drug-free methodology applied, which is why the network continues to grow worldwide.
