Ok, but in regards to the pepole jumping off bridges because they ran out of oxycontin is a completely different subject because they were severe addicts. I'm talking about using opiates as adjunct therapies to other depression treatments.

Not everyone is an addict or becomes an addict. What's the difference between the addictive nature of stimulants and benzos and that of opiates?
