Could a Vaccine Replace Effective Drug Rehab?


The Federal Government invests tax dollars in pharmaceutical testing for addiction vaccines.

In a recent article published by the Reuters news agency, the director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) was quoted as promoting scientific research into vaccines for addiction to drugs. In fact, $10 million in taxpayers’ money was recently given to a pharmaceutical company to conduct clinical trials on a vaccine for this purpose, hoping that it would lead to something for other drugs as well.

In case you haven’t noticed, vaccines are big business right now. There is the swine flu vaccine, HPV vaccine, and many others that are very widely promoted.

One of the main problems with developing chemical compounds to treat addiction is that nothing to date has ever produced any cure rate for addiction from the pharmaceutical industry. In addition, there are often very heavy and severe side effects that go along with these toxins. When dealing with addiction, adding more toxins to an already toxic mind and body should be the last thing that is tried in an effort to achieve lasting sobriety.

Rather than spending so much money on far-fetched inoculations to alter brain chemistry, more money should be spent on helping people get into drug rehab programs that already prove they can and do work.

“We have had many clients who have tried anything from prescriptions to injections to implants to try and overcome their addictions, but the bottom line is that if the person doesn’t have his abilities raised and self-determinism restored, then any amount of chemicals offered as a temporary solution are only going to make successful recovery more difficult,” says Narconon Louisiana Executive Director. “We continue to demonstrate that we can and do help people get off drugs and alcohol for good, and it doesn’t take millions of dollars in research to figure that out.”

Based on the late American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard’s research and developments in the field of drug rehabilitation, Narconon Louisiana uses unique rehabilitation technology that gets to the problem at its source—and provides a path for long-term success.

Our success is measured in our ever-growing number of graduates who now lead new lives free from drugs.
