Our patients with addiction often feel little more than ‘animals’ in the pharmacy — we must change


Dear Ismael, I enjoyed reading your article. I also try to spend as much time with "blue script" patients as possible, and help them to the best of my ability. Through the years I have been appalled by stories that I have heard from these patients about the way that they have been treated by some pharmacists as well as other staff members in pharmacies. I am really pleased that you have brought this to the attention of the pharmacy community. Keep up the good work! David Thurston
