The Man Who Successfully Treated Opioid Addiction–and Wound Up in Jail

Dr. Punyamurtula Kishore

If you’re interested in the ever-worsening problem of opioid addiction in America, which President Trump mentioned in his State of the Union speech, and would like to read a deep and thorough treatment of the subject, visit the Chalcedon website, http://www.chalcedon.edu .

Our print magazine, Faith For All Of Life, published a series of 18 articles by our vice-president, Martin Selbrede, on the life and work of Dr. Punyamutula Kishore, whose clinics boasted a success rate of 50 to 60 percent in treating drug addicts–until the state of Massachusetts shut him down, closed his clinics, and sent him to prison. Dr. Kishore is out now, and resuming his work in other states where the government is more receptive: but he has an awful lot of wreckage to clean up.

It’s easy to access Martin’s articles (edited by Susan and me). Just go to Chalcedon’s site, click “Resources,” and search for “Dr. Kishore”–so simple, even I can do it.

Why was Dr. Kishore persecuted? His success rate of 50 to 60 percent rather embarrassed the government-endorsed programs, where the success rate seldom reaches as high as 5 percent. His was a sobriety-based treatment, instead of substituting one addictive drug for another. Martin’s articles tell the whole story. Meanwhile, a feature film has been made about Dr. Kishore and should soon be ready for release.

It’s too big a story for me to sum up here: so if you’re interested, read the articles. I think you’ll be amazed by what you read.

    What a shame! Treatment of addiction has become an industry, and apparently succeeding at treatment is not appreciated by the people that make a career out of a 5% success rate.

      That’s because our very own CIA is responsible for bringing drugs into this country, along with the Mena, Arkansas crew. Why did we go to Afghanistan? To protect the poppy fields, of course.

    I’ve read all 18 articles – they are amazing! And I have contributed money for the film being made which I can hardly wait for it to be released. I wrote Dr. Kishore while he was in prison. It is my prayer that this Chalcedon information will make its way to President Trump’s awareness – it is a real eye opener. There is more to the gov’t swamp than Washington D.C.
