Swiss Medicalisation of Heroin Use Puts Off Youth

This article, published on the 4th September 2006, reports on the benefits seen by the Swiss of their heroin assisted treatment programmes which has drasically cut new users of the drug. One researcher, Nordt, explains that the medicalisation of the drug and its use has discouraged potential new users of the drug. All glamour is removed in the medical setting so that users are no longer seen as rebels but losers. This is a very positive development for both users and those who deplore drug use.

A formatting suggestion:

Linking to the featured source in the post title is uncommon and hence unintuitive. Typically, all links should be within the body text.

I wasn't aware that this was happening here. My blog has the title at the top and the first bit of text has the html link to the article by default. I usually insert my own title on my blog and keep the link. I still haven't figured out how to insert links into my blog -although it's a piece of cake for my website.

Select the text you want to be the link, then press the button midway in the toolbar.
