From what I am seeing and hopefully someone with more knowledge will jump in here to help me, but it looks more like Naloxone, Naltrexone, or Vivitrol. This won't help with the craving or addiction it will only server to stop someone from "getting high". There maybe some use for it after a person has detoxed and used in conjunction with other forms of recovery treatment.

So in that respect it doesn't really compare to Suboxone as they are meant for two different purposes.

The vaccine may work for those who have completed detoxing or those who are not currently dependent but would be a nightmare for those in current dependency. This also will do nothing, NOTHING for the addiction.

We all want there to be that magic pill that we can take and have this nightmare over, and maybe, maybe one day... but really this is a disease that has so many layers. You can find something to treat one part of it, but there is still nothing that will address all issues related to addiction and dependency.

Thank you for linking that post! it is always nice to read about possible advancements. I, like you, am also praying that one day they will have a "cure" for my disease of addiction but for now, I will just keep working at it day by day.

Interesting that they're calling it a vaccine. I do wonder how different it would be to a naltrexone shot. Perhaps Dr. J could weigh in. It may be too late for any of us to get "vaccinated" :lol: but I wouldn't mind giving my future teenagers a shot. I like the idea of nipping it in the bud before it starts. :wink: I'd just poke 'em with a shot while they sleep.. then if they ever think about trying some vics or percs with their friends, they won't get the hype. It's genius.

It does mention in the article that you can still get pain relief from fentanyl while using the "vaccine" which is interesting.
