How did this Philadelphia neighborhood become an open-air heroin den?

How did it get this bad?

Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland are all leaders in opiate and heroin overdose deaths. Apparently Kensington, which is located along the Delaware River, is the leading nexus of heroin in the region.

Youtuber Czech in Effect went out an actually interviewed people on August 26th. The following two video take place immediately before and immediately after the Philadelphia media claimed the area had been “cleaned up.”

Can psychedelics cure heroin addiction? In many parts of the world, psychedelics are used to treat addiction to opiates, methamphetamines, alcohol, nicotine, and other substances. Many Americans have traveled to clinics in Mexico or other foreign countries to treat heroin addiction using plant-based Ibogaine.

The treatment is a one-time thing, and the addict does not continue using psychedelics. So they are not replacing one drug with a different drug, such as trading heroin for methadone. There are University studies from as far back as the 60s showing psychedelic treatment has a higher success rate than drug-free rehab. Currently, it is extremely illegal to use Ibogaine to attempt to treat heroin addicts in the USA.

Several new American companies are working on getting FDA approval for psychedelic treatments for drug addicts.
