Abstract

The “War on Drugs” has spawned major research efforts that have led to the discovery of the “opiate receptor” and the development of new narcotic antagonists which may be useful adjuncts in the rehabilitation of chronic opiate addicts. At the moment, these findings are rich with potential applications and potential discovery. The authors review the current state of the art.
