Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Miami

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 Miami 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.

Treatment for Heroin Addiction

Treatment is most successful when the addict is willing to change and also if heroin addiction is identified in early stages. Among the many methods of treatment are the use of Methadone and Buprenorphine. These are treatment drugs that attempt to eliminate the effects of heroin and remove the withdrawal symptoms. These drugs have proven successful and help patients especially when combined with other therapeutic recovery methods, like behavioral therapies.

Effects of Cocaine Addiction

Severe paranoia is a common effect of cocaine addiction in which the addict loses touch with reality and experiences hallucinations of an auditory nature. Cocaine addicts in Miami that consume the drug orally are also prone to ulcers in the stomach. Infections are also fairly common among cocaine addicts.

Health problems that arise as a result of cocaine addiction are mostly cardiac-related and cocaine addicts are at risk of seizures or heart attacks regardless of method of ingestion or term of use. Health issues that may result from cocaine addiction are as follows

What Makes Cocaine so Addictive?

Cocaine doubles the amount of dopamine in the brain, a chemical responsible for pleasure and happiness. It artificially produces dopamine and increases its level in the brain causing ecstatic feeling. Gradually, the brain becomes tolerant of cocaine and addicts do not feel the same pleasure as they initially felt. This makes them start taking more in shorter periods of time to achieve the same feeling, thus causing a cocaine addiction.
