Put a Stop to Your Addiction with Somerville Drug Rehab

These are just some of the physical effects of snorting cocaine. Noticeable changes in a persons behavioral pattern include paranoia, restlessness and anxiety. People with high dependency on cocaine experience severe paranoid psychosis, lose touch with reality, and start hallucinating. No matter what the ingestion method, the effects of cocaine are harmful and may result in strokes, heart attacks, and seizures. Common health problems that arise from cocaine abuse include:

  • Heart attacks
  • Digestive problems
  • Nervous system problems
  • Respiratory failure
  • Skin infections
  • HIV (by using shared needles when injecting)
  • Hypertension
  • Decreased appetite leading to malnourishment
  • Dilation of pupils

Like alcohol and other drug addictions, cocaine addiction has adverse psychological effects. Users often describe their euphoric state as an increasing sense of energy, feeling of superiority, and extremely jubilant moods. But like all other drugs, the stage when the high wears off is a state of extreme paranoia, anxiety, and restlessness. Cocaine intensifies emotional experiences like anger and frenzy, and users may want to indulge in high risk activities. Robberies and theft are common ways to raise finances for this extravagant drug. Several previous addicts have confessed to having sex with strangers in order to raise cash for cocaine.

The Increasing Risk of Heroin Addiction in Somerville

What is Heroin Addiction?

One of the most destructive drugs in the world, an opiate and a dangerous narcotic, heroin addiction can be disastrous to the life of its user. Heroin is derived from morphine in turn is obtained from opium poppy plants.

Consequences of Prescription Drug Abuse

In addition to the physical addiction created by prescription drug abuse, a person may also experience:

  • Deterioration in personal relationships
  • Employment difficulties due to a lack of concentration and motivation
  • Financial difficulties
  • Legal problems
  • Psychological difficulties

Test Trials

The test trials have proven successful. The cocaine vaccine has passed its pre-testing trials on rats and non-human primates. It is all set to be tested on humans within the next 7-8 months. Biologically, non-human primates are reported to being closer to humans than rats. Test results have shown that vaccinated primates showed a decreased activity to cocaine than non-vaccinated primates.

The cocaine occupancy level of the dopamine transporter which is 40% to achieve a high, dropped to 20% with the use of the vaccine. The results of vaccine lasted about 13 weeks in rats and 7 weeks in non-human primates.

Researchers are not sure about the amount of vaccine and number of times it would have to be given to humans to achieve the desired results. One thing is for sure is that the breakthrough of a cocaine vaccine will prove to be enormously beneficial for cocaine addicts in Somerville as well as those around the country who wish to remove this harmful drug from their life.
