I presented the paper below at the ASAM annual meeting in Atlanta a few weeks ago.  Understand that my findings are very preliminary, and should be attempted only by physicians with exceptional understanding of the risks of opioid treatments, under close monitoring.

The findings suggest a method to yield long-term, even permanent analgesia, at less risk than from agonists alone.
