THE DOCTOR SAYS Drug Addiction Problem Through Eyes of a Doctor By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Narcotics is a subject that concerns all of us because of its close relationship to juvenile delinquency. It is also a subject 'about which there is still a great deal of confusion and emotionally charged difference of opinion. Before there can be an act- diet there must he a susceptible person, availability of an addiction-producing drug, and an environment that favors addiction. Most of the "ddicts who make drug addictron the serious problem it is are young men between the ages of 16 and 30. The chief drug of addiction is heroin. Environmental factors include overcrowding in substandard dwellings in large cities, and gangs in which addiction is accepted as a way of life. Drug addiction is a truly deplorable illness. In a well-meaning attempt to protect the potential addrct the Harrison Narcotic Act was passed in 1914. This law has unfortunately had the opposite effect.

TO 10:00 P.M. DAILY INCLUDING SUNDAYS, Park Drive Dairy for physicians to treat addicts by giving them maintenance doses of drugs it had the effect of causing doctors to stop treating addicts. The average addict who can get his drugs regularly can manage to live a fairly normal life. Many persons in high places have maintained such an addiction without even their closest associates ever suspecting that they were taking drugs. When, however, we make it hard for the addict to get his daily supply, he will suffer the extreme tortures of withdrawal. To prevent this he will steal or even commit murder., Since the doctors can no longer treat his illness he is forced to turn to the underworld for treatment. Many addicts, in order to insure their own supply, become dope peddlers and induce other susceptible persons to become addicts. Thus a bad situation not only perpetuates itself but spreads. Since the number of victims of this vicious system cannot be known accurately, estimates 6f the number in the United States range from 60,000 to one million. The true figure is probably somewhere in between. A note of optimism has recently been sounded. Although most young men who are taken off drugs relapse quickly, there is growing evidence that when they reach the age of 30 to 35, many (not all), voluntarily break the habit. This fa believed to be a sign of their reaching a new level of maturity. This still does not solve the problem of the wasted years, the prevention of addiction in a new crop of youngsters, or the treatment of older persons who cannot break the habit. One of the first steps that must be taken is to amend the laws in such a way as to place treatment back in the hands of legitimate doctors.
