Opioid Crisis

Opioids Are Killing Us: Here’s What We Can Do About It

More than 61,300 people in the U.S. died from drug overdoses in 2017, up from the previous year’s record of 54,800. (See the graphic.) That’s more than the number of Americans who died in the Vietnam War. And it’s happening every year. Opioids are directly or indirectly responsible for about 70 percent of those overdose deaths.

Finding a Cure: A Solution That Works There are two elements: (1) a microcurrent neurofeedback mechanism that allows the brain to heal and to begin natural endorphin production after years of opioid use and (2) a two-year regime of recovery and support by trained professionals.

Evidence that these two therapies work and work well is summarized at the Matthews Hope Foundation website. Furthermore, the cost is about one fifth the cost of M.A.T. therapy.
