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.
