Abstract

As neuroscience advances our understanding of addiction, a drug called naltrexone offers the possibility of treating drug offenders, particularly those on probation or parole, and helping them avoid relapse. Richard J. Bonnie, Donna T. Chen and Charles P. O’Brien examine ethical and legal concerns related to various methods of administering naltrexone.
