NHS & British Economy

Our goal is simple, by introducing better treatments huge financial savings can be made with better patient outcomes, a win-win.

The total cost to society for drug and alcohol misuse in England is £36.4bn per annum.

Addiction is Not a Disease
Why the Disease Definition of Addiction Does Far More Harm Than Good.  Over the past year and a half, Scientific American has published a number of fine articles arguing that addiction is not a disease, that drugs are not the cause of addiction, and that social and societal factors are fundamental contributors to opioid addiction in general and the overdose crisis in particular. The dominant view, that addiction is a disease resulting from drug use, is gradually being eroded by these and other incisive critiques.

Drug & Alcohol Problem
Current treatments to help people with drug and alcohol issues do not work as the problems have escalated over the last 30 years but at the same time this has had a massive impact on the British economy, costing billions of pounds every year.

Our successful approach to help people stop drinking, stop using cocaine or opiate drugs can be incorporated into the NHS to provide patients with the extra help they need and save the British economy £billions per annum.

Our treatment is a global solution which can then be exported around the world to help people with addiction problems.

Prescribe Any Treatment
The Department of Health state: “Doctors can use their clinical judgment to prescribe any treatment that will benefit their patient, even if it is outside its licensed indication and that an absence of NICE guidance is not an acceptable reason to refuse funding treatment’.

Directors of Public Health (DPH) are responsible for delivering public health outcomes in their local area and will control the bulk of drug and alcohol funding and will oversee a department or directorate that will be responsible for delivering the outcomes from the local Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
