THERE is hope yet for those unable to shake off their addiction to drugs and alcohol. The cure is indigenous, painless and involves the oral intake of a vaccine made from homeopathic elements. Developed after a 3-year research by Dr Gopakumar, a bachelor of homeopathy medicine and surgery and his team of doctors, the vaccine is a combination of homeo medicines. The research was conducted along with the Alcohol and Drug Information Centre (ADIC), under the SAARC Federation for Prevention of Drug and Substance Abuse, Thiruvananthapuram. The vaccine has been successfully tried on prisoners in Thiruvananthapuram sub-jail who were addicted to alcohol and drugs like ganja and smack. The treatment incorporates the creation of an artificial disease to combat the original ailment -- craving for alcohol and drugs. This does not create an alternative addiction for the homeo drug as the dose is too small.
