About the Book

THE OPIATE CURE tells the stories of painful people whose mental illness were relieved when they were given opiates for their pain. This improbable outcome has occurred in those with bipolar depression and mania, attention defi cit disorder, obsessivecompulsive disorder, and narcolepsy. These several diseases are now linked together, constituting the bipolar spectrum. Linked also to bipolar spectrum is chronic pain in its many forms, including migraine. This book will clearly demonstrate that bipolar spectrum is uniquely responsive to opiate therapy. The Opiate Cure offers new insights and, more importantly, hope.
