New implant aims to help battle addiction

THINGS WENT HORRIBLY, HORRIBLY WRONG Karen: HE SAID IT WILL BE EXHAUSTIVE AND COMPLETE

AN IMPLANT THAT REDUCES AN ADDICT'S CRAVINGS AS PAULA TUTMAN SHOWS US, IT'S ALREADY CHANGING LIVES RIGHT HERE IN METRO DETROIT Paula: HEY, KAREN, I'M AT DRUG COURT IN CLINTON TOWNSHIP I KNOW AS A DEFENDANT YOU'VE DONE QUITE A FEW STORIES ON DRUG COURT AND ADDICTS, BUT I WANT TO START THE STORY HERE TODAY BECAUSE I WANTED YOU TO SEE HOW CROWDED IT IS TODAY I REMEMBER REPEATEDLY SEEING YOU WHERE YOU COULDN'T STAY SOBER AT ALL

Paula: THE FIRST MAN AT THE BENCH IS STRUGGLING WITH HIS OWN ADDICTION BUT TRYING TO KEEP HIS FIANCEE FROM GOING TO JAIL AND GETTING HER INTO THE PROGRAM GET HER CLEAN SO SHE COULD BE A GOOD MOM, THAT'S MY GOAL STATISTICS SHOW THAT THE BEST CHANCE OF RECOVERY IS MEDICALLY ASSISTED TREATMENT Paula: THE MY LIFE RECOVERY CENTER IN THE FIGHT AGAINST ALCOHOL AND OPIATE ADDICTION IT REDUCES THE CRAVINGS THAT THEY HAVE

Paula: THE IMPLANT IS BUT LOW THE BELLY BUTTON AND KEEP THE CHEMICAL ON BOARD THAT KILLS THE PHYSIOLOGICAL CRAVINGS CHRIS WAS A FIREFIGHTER ON THE VERGE OF LOSING HIS FAMILY BECAUSE OFF HOURS, HE WAS A FALLDOWN DRUNK AT ONE POINT, MY WIFE SAID, YOU HAVE 90 DAYS TO GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER OR SHE'S GONE WITH OUR SON Paula: THREE YEARS LATER, HE IS CLEAN, SOBER, AND WORKING FOR THE COMPANY THAT SAVED HIS LIFE AND HIS MARRIAGE SIX MONTHS AGO TODAY, ERIC WAS A HEROIN ADDICT

BEING A DAILY I V USER Paula: THE NEED TO SHOOT UP ENDED WITHIN HOURS OF GETTING THE IMPLANT BUT RECENTLY STARTED GETTING THE CRAVINGS AGAIN

I COULD TELL IT WAS WEARING OFF AS I WAS ROMANTICIZING ABOUT HEROIN AGAIN Paula: HE GOT A NEW IMPLANT TODAY IF I DIDN'T HAVE THE IMPLANT, I WOULD BE IN PRISON OR DEAD I WOULD BE DIVORCED WITH MONITORED VISITATIONS WITH MY SON AND POSSIBLY EVEN HOMELESS, AS WELL Paula: IT'S A PROGRAM THAT INCLUDES LIFE COUNSELING
