Dr. Nagma Bansal, Dr. Kamalpreet Kaur and Dr. Amita Jindal
Drug Addiction and substance abuse is a chronic, relapsing disease wherein the recent years have seen a rise in the number of abusers. The drug user compulsively spends time looking for and using an illegal drug. This form of addiction is characterized by neurochemical and molecular changes in the brain. The present pharmacotherapy is not paving the way to complete solution of the problem, therefore Immunotherapy is looked upon as a great potential to treat this evil. But still a lot of work needs to be done in this field.
