Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in York

Vaccine for drug abuse treatment is not a new idea. The first vaccine itself was developed in the 18th century to inoculate people against small pox. The result was a 100% success. Since then, scientists have invested vast amounts of time and resources attempting to prevent other conditions as well.
