Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101

Denise Krochta

Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Heroin Addiction Vaccine. Fantasy or Reality?

The number one topic at the New Hampshire Caucus is heroin addiction.  All candidates for President are talking about it.  The President of the United States is talking about it.  Heroin Addiction is considered an epidemic.  Deaths and overdose statistics are staggering.  Do you know someone whose family is touched by heroin addiction?  It can happen to anyone.
So, what would you say if you knew there was a vaccine for heroin addiction in the “wings”?
This week Denise interviews Dr. Kim Janda, a scientist at Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA about the vaccine he has created and what it can mean.  What will it take to get this on the market?  Who will be able to use it?  How will it work? How was it developed?
Listen and learn.  If you have questions, ask them.  Feel free to contact  Dr. Janda .  Here is some more information regarding this vaccine and funding.
