Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Edison

Still in the Testing Stage

The study that was initially carried out on rats found that after provided with unlimited heroin, rats became addicted to the drug. Once addicted, they were made to go through a four week detoxification. Some were exposed to the heroin vaccine while others were put through conventional methods of recovery.

Upon re-exposing them to the heroin, it was found that the rats that werent given the heroin vaccine immediately went into relapse while the others stopped taking it.

The heroin vaccine creates a wall between the bloodstream and the brain which does not allow from the drug to enter. As the addict will no longer feel the high associated with heroin, they will lose incentive for its use.

The next stage for the development of the heroin vaccine before it is commercially available will be human testing. Financial barriers however have delayed such a step.

Heroin Addiction: Effects and Treatments in Edison

Heroin is one of the most abused drugs in Edison and is made from morphine which is naturally derived from poppy seeds. Heroin may also be available in the form of synthetic substitutes. Heroin is a highly addictive recreational drug which results in physical dependency and causes serious health issues. Heroin addiction can be extremely harmful to the health of an addict.

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.

Heroine Vaccine: The Idea

While treatments options abound, researchers have long been working on the development of a heroin vaccine to reduce dependency on the drug. Millions of people in Edison and the rest of the U.S. are addicted to heroin which comes with its own list of associated problems, such as increased incidence of HIV transferred through shared syringes. Not to mention, drug relapse is relatively high in heroin as compared to other drugs.

These and other factors have set the stage for the development of a heroin vaccine. Various reports show that the possibility of heroin vaccine pre-testing is finally here. Till now, tests have been conducted on rats, which have provided positive results. If you know someone who has fallen prey to heroin addiction, these vaccines may provide the possibility of a sober future.

The heroin vaccine creates a barrier between the drug and the brain. By preventing heroin from reaching the brain when it enters the blood stream, the vaccine kills the psychological effect, the high that the drug creates. The vaccine achieves this by triggering the enzymes present in our body to act against heroin. The vaccine would have pieces of the drug which are inactive, and this will train the immune system to create antibodies to counter the effects of heroin in your system.
