There were two stories recently about addiction vaccines. This first is about tobacco addiction vaccine trial that is about to begin. The second reports on the findings from a cocaine vaccine study. We will probably be seeing a lot more of these vaccines in the coming years. The goal of these drugs is to create an immune response that would prevent the effects of the drug.

I have been an addiction professional and social worker since 1994. I started blogging in 2005 as the Clinical Director at Dawn Farm. I no longer work at Dawn Farm and am now the Director of Behavioral Medicine at a community hospital, and a lecturer at Eastern Michigan University’s School of Social Work. Views expressed here are my own. Keep in mind that the field, the contexts in which the field operates, and my views have changed over time. View all posts by Jason Schwartz
