Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Hazleton

The Challenge Remains

Even though the heroin vaccine being developed displays positive signs in terms of treating heroin addiction, the most important part of human testing is yet to take place. Before doing so, the institute needs financial help to conduct clinical trials and proceed with their research and development.

The process can be time-consuming and might not be as effective with human beings. If it turns out to be effective among human beings and it helps the treatment process, then heroin addicts in Hazleton can look forward to a possible new treatment that will bring them closer to recovery. Unfortunately, there are still a few complications with the vaccine. For instance, the heroin being blocked from entering the brain still remains in the bloodstream, which is harmful for the user.

This means a heroin detox is still needed to remove the drug from the persons bloodstream and other treatment methods including therapies and counseling will continue.

How it Affects your Brain?

Methamphetamine enters the brain through sniffing, snorting or smoking the powder. It tricks the brain into producing more dopamine and epinephrine which are the pleasure and alertness inducing chemicals in the brain. Under Meth addiction the brain produces 10 times more units of these chemicals. This makes a person feel confident, happy, and invincible. With time higher doses are required to achieve the same state.

Treatment of Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine withdrawal is not easy, and there are side effects associated with it. Because, there are no physical withdrawal symptoms from cocaine addiction present, users generally feel that they are not addicted. Users who wish to quit may face withdrawal symptoms for a period of 24 hours or lasting days and months, called Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms. Treatment drugs to cure cocaine addiction are not necessarily present but other drugs to cure the withdrawal symptoms like paranoia, increased anxiety, cravings, fatigue, and restlessness are present.

Users who are given targeted treatment respond well to recovery. The best results seem to come from social support and counseling. People who have successfully stayed away from cocaine for several years may also feel powerful cravings for the drug as reported by the U.S. Library of Medicine.

Habitual use of cocaine increases the tolerance levels; this makes a person take higher dose of the drug to achieve the same level of pleasure as before. The increased dose which cocaine addiction requires intensifies any adverse physiological or psychological effects of the drug. It also increases the risk of drug overdose and consequently the risk of death.
