When taking evidence on drug abuse it was put to the Joint Committee that the conventional wisdom was that little, if anything, could be done for cocaine addiction. The Joint Committee decided to have another look at the problem and the result is this Report which shows that a combination of medical, psychological and social interventions can have a definite and lasting impact on this destructive behaviour. The fact that vaccination research is ongoing in the US gives even greater hope for the future.
