    I had been thinking this while trying to go to sleep last night... saline injections and sugar pills do not help when a person is addicted to something! The person will still go through withdrawal and is going cold turkey.

    Their symptoms will be reduced compared to taking no placebo, but not to the same extent as they would be on, say, methadone.
