~ Doctor’s care extends beyond patient ~
After four failed tries to kick heroin habit in area detox programs, Theresa and her husband heard from a friend about an addiction specialist in Brighton named Dr. Punyamurtula Kishore. Must have been a good friend. “ If it weren’t for Dr. Kishore…I probably would’ve ended up in jail on a drug charge,” said Theresa. “ [Her husband] would’ve ended up killing himself or he would’ve overdosed. He couldn’t have continued at this pace.”

Dr. Punyamurtula Kishore doesn’t call his patients addicts or substance abusers. He calls them “accidental tourist,” people who can’t find their way out. He doesn’t politicize or moralize about this, He says, “In the old days, we say, ‘Many roads lead to Rome.’ Addiction is like that.”

Experts say they see general belief from both adults and teens that accept alcohol use among minors as “safe” or “OK, as long as they aren’t driving.”

~ Dr. Kishore argues for treatment of drug users before crisis point hits ~
BOSTON – Dr. Punyamurtula S. Kishore offers a different approach to treating addictions that has attracted close to 5,000 patients a year to his Boston-based Primary Care Associates and Addiction Medicine Associates. The key to Kishore’s different approach is what he calls “home detoxification” – which, he said, is a less expensive and more effective option than simply sending an addict to a detox center or hospital.
