Why is this happening? Is there hope for helping individuals with opioid addiction?
From a scientific standpoint, addiction is a disease. And, as researchers who study opioid addiction, we’re hopeful about where epigenetics, the science of how DNA code is regulated, can lead us.
This research could one day unlock preventative therapeutics – treatments that not only help those currently struggling with substance abuse but protect future generations.
