New Implants for Heroin Treatment

Thankfully, new treatment options are coming out for heroin addicts.  The latest one I just heard about is called probuphrine and it is a new implant approved by the FDA that mitigates the effects of heroin.  It is dispersed by four small rods that slowly administer the substance. With a steady supply of the drugs being dispersed, the symptoms of cravings and withdrawal are diminished in its users.  The the rods disperse the medication over the course of six months at a time which eliminates the need to administer injections on a daily basis.
