OBJ ... has been kind to us, with the good
news coming in, on schedule .....
..... thank you, Mr Gann.
It's not often, that we take any notice of
the fundamentals of any company.
However, this one is of particular interest.
To explain ..... whilst the recent increase in
Cortisone delivery is good news, it is the
Naltrexone patch that may well give OBJ
a boost in the short-term.
As volunteers on the fringes of the local
Naltrexone implant program, we can see
both the benefits and pitfalls of a
Competition for the Naltrexone patch is
very real, but the patch will have its place
in the rehabilitation of addicts.
In reality, a heroin-dependent addict does
not have the will-power or the mindset to
wear a patch of any type .....
..... that's where the Naltrexone implant
program kicks in, taking away the option
of refusing treatment for addicts coming
off heroin cold-turkey, by inserting the
Naltrexone under the skin, where it is
slowly used by the body to reduce the
addicts desire for opiates.
Where the OBJ patch may be of benefit is
where addicts have had an implant and have
had a change in mindset to long-term
recovery, as they progress with their
rehabilitation ..... though they still have the
option of removing the patch, with good
after-care and support, the necessity of a
subsequent implant may be reduced.
If you check the Naltrexone articles in SMH
on 05122005, you will see that the Federal
Health Minister is very keen to promote
Naltrexone over methadone treatment,
because very few addicts ever leave the
methadone program and it costs the health
system more than $22 + million, every year.
Methadone is very damaging to dental
health as well, adding further to the annual
bill for just maintaining addicts, inside the
So, patches do have a place in the
recovery process for addicts, but promoting
them as primary treatment against the
established competition, like Naltrexone
implants would be a basic marketing error.
In short, Naltrexone patches are probably
best utilized on individuals, who are highly
committed to their own recovery, whether
they are being treated for alcohol addiction
Strangely, Naltrexone for alcoholism is
currently available through the public health
Medicare system, yet Naltrexone for drug
addicts must be paid for by the patient or
generous public donations ..... something
seems very wrong with that arrangement,
