Federal Agents, Medicine
Loosen Its Hold—Cures
Are Numerous.
By the Associated Press.
Law-enforcement agencies and the
medical profession are gradually
loosening the grip of opium on the
narcotic-susceptible portion of Amer
ica's population.
This was made known today by Dr.
Lawrence Kolb, medical director of the
Federal Narcotic Farm at Lexington,
Ky. Since 1035 the Public Health
Service has been gathering a repre
sentative group of addicts into the hos
pital and farm for treatment and to
study the mental and physical effects
of narcotic*. Moat of them are com
mitted to the farm from the courts,
but many seek treatment voluntarily.
“Many addicts who present them
selves for treatment at the present
time have weak habits or are already
partly cured,” Dr. Kolb said. “This
condition has prevailed for a number
of years and is growing more evident
as time goes on because it is becom
ing increasingly difficult to secure un
diluted drugs illegally and physicians
are growing more and more reluctant
to furnish narcotics to addicts.”
As a result, he added, “we find that
only about 20 per cent of addicts have
sufficiently strong habits to Justify
their inclusion in a research program
designed to test the efficacy of cures.”
Even the most severely addicted pa
tients can be successfully treated with
proper attention, he added, and the
narcotic farm already has shown that
a great deal can be done toward
stamping out the addiction evil.
He said the usual treatment con
sisted of withdrawal of the drug with
in 14 days, warm baths, sedatives
when necessary and careful medical
Shower for Boys’ Club.
