COVER: "The Hunt for an Addiction Vaccine" (p. 36). Health Reporter Jeneen Interlandi examines the latest science and developments in research that are showing how the brain functions in addicts. The findings are leading health officials to determine that addiction is a legitimate illness and not a moral failing and can be treated with medication. Only now are we beginning to see treatments that target the underlying biochemistry of the disease. In essence, an addict's brain is malfunctioning, as surely as the pancreas in someone with diabetes. Interlandi reports on the compounds being developed or tested by the National Institute on Drug Abuse that block the intoxicating effects of drugs, including vaccines that train the body's own immune system to bar them from the brain. To the extent that "willpower" is a meaningful concept at all, the era of willpower-in-a-pill may be just over the horizon.

"And Now, Back in the Real World ... " (p. 41). Senior Writer Claudia Kalb reports that between 2000 and 2006, the number of drug offenders in federal prison jumped 26 percent, to 93,751. An additional 250,000 are incarcerated in state facilities and thousands more sit in local jail cells. Laws still treat drug use as a crime, but from Maryland to Hawaii, states are looking for new ways to steer drug offenders away from prison cells and into treatment. In the process, they hope to save millions of taxpayer dollars.
