Opioid Addiction and Chinese Medicine

Opioid Addiction and Chinese Medicine
Special Offer
Volume 2 Issue 5 - October 2007

by Bob Flaws

In the book ‘Chinese Medical Psychiatry’, readers will see that, under many (if not most) disease categories, substance abuse is one of the three main subcategories of differential diagnosis. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 28-30% of the adult U.S. population has a diagnosable mental or addictive disorder during any one year period. Because substance abuse can cause psychiatric disease and many patients with psychiatric disease seek relief from their symptoms through substance abuse, the DSM-IV lists substance-related disorders as one of its main categories of psychiatric disorders. However, there is no chapter on substance-related disorders in Chinese Medical Psychiatry. This is because, at the time this book was compiled, the authors did not have access to primary Chinese language materials on such disorders. Since then, I have found Chinese language materials at least on opioid addiction, and, therefore would like to share this information.
