Put a Stop to Your Addiction with Somerville Alcohol Rehab

The reliance on opiates as an external supply source to cure pain becomes essential to consumption due to degeneration of the nerve cells. Opiates damage the brain cells in a way that the nerve system is unable to produce endorphins. Endorphins, also known as endogenous opiates are the natural painkillers that the body produces to cure pain initially.

In the absence of endorphins, the body is unable to stop pain making a person physically and psychologically dependent on opiate for the purpose of removing pain and inducing sleep.

Are Substance Abuse Programs the Same as Drug Rehab Programs?

When a person refers to substance abuse, it is the same as saying drug rehab programs include:

  • Inpatient drug rehab
  • Outpatient drug rehab
  • Partial hospitalization or day substance abuse treatment
  • Drug rehab with a dual diagnosis treatment component
  • Drug addiction treatment component for the gay and lesbian community

Each of these substance abuse programs are accompanied by a set of clinical criteria, which must be met in order for a positive outcome to occur. It becomes the responsibility of a trained addiction treatment professional to evaluate you and determine the most effective modality of care.

Meth Vaccine for Meth Addicts

An experimental vaccine against meth has been developed and is being tested on rats. This vaccine has shown promising results on rats that are high on meth. The vaccine showed to protect the animal against the effects of meth intoxication by attacking the drug as soon as it enters the body and prevents it from reaching the brain and nervous system. This approach has been used successfully for other addictions as well.

The scientists developed several compounds to use against meth, one of them being the MH6 which was then tested on rats.

When rats were under the influence of meth, they showed high levels of energy along with a significant increase in body temperature. MH6 worked against these two effects along with increasing antibody response against the drug. This showed that the vaccine helped to prevent meth from entering or affecting the nervous system. If the brain and the nervous system arent influenced, the individual has no need of relying on the drug and thus there is no incentive.

But what the scientists need to know for sure is - will the vaccine help in reducing meth craving in these rats? The effects of this vaccine so far can only last a few weeks but not years let alone an entire lifetime. The process is still in its earlier stages, and it may take some time before they can finally test the vaccine on humans.
