Substance Abuse Programs: How Do I Choose the Best One?

There are many wonderfully effective substance abuse programs throughout the country, but not all of them can meet your individual needs. By calling Affordable Rehab of Minnetonka , we can assist you in identifying those needs and help you locate a substance abuse treatment program that’s capable of meeting them. Some of the questions you may want to consider when looking for a substance abuse treatment program are:

What is Opiate Addiction?

Opiate addiction is caused by the consumption of opiate based drugs which include opium, Oxycodone, Oxycontin and Morphine.

While some people use these drugs for recreational purposes, others may get easily addicted to them and become physically dependent on the substance. Opiate addiction is a deadly disease in which the affected person suffers from a central nervous system breakdown.

How Can Prescription Drug Abuse Harm Me

When you repeatedly take a medication that you are not supposed to, then you might grow addicted to it.

Have you ever taken a pain killer or muscle relaxant that drifts your mind away to a far away place? After experiencing that feeling, did you find yourself taking these pain killers and muscle relaxants again and again? You may not realize it, but addiction is sitting right around the corner. Those little pills you are swallowing are very harmful to your body.

These drugs have numerous short and long term health risks when abused. You might be a teenager, a man going through mid-life crises or a woman feeling suffocated under the pressure of an unhealthy marriage. Whichever the case, using prescription drugs as a temporary escape may lead to a fatal outcome for you.

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.

Help is standing by 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
