Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Jersey City

Meth Vaccines

The meth vaccine being developed by The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) to counter the effects of meth abuse is in early stages of research at the moment. Initial tests show promising signs on rats and other animals.

About two years ago, Kim Janda, a professor of TSRI and his colleagues developed 6 potential meth vaccines. Each vaccine had a chemical cognate of the meth molecule which was linked to a larger antibody-provoking molecule.

Trials were first conducted on mice and later, on rats. Three mice were able to give a powerful antibody reaction. After testing on rats, the experts noticed that vaccine MH6 performed exceptionally well. MH6 was able to prevent two typical effects caused by meth, namely increased physical activity and losing the normal ability for regulating body temperature.

Encouraged by this observation, the MH6 vaccine was studied further in more depth and tested with a varied experimental set up to see if the vaccine produced the same results. Amazingly enough, it did!

The experimentation also paved way from a valuable discovery. The vaccine was able to keep the drug out of the nervous system of the rats and stay only in the blood stream. This was the main cause for aiding the body to give a strong antibody response.

Heroin Vaccine is Ready for Human Testing

Heroin is an addictive drug known to create a euphoric and pleasurable feeling in humans. Since tolerance to the drug becomes high with consumption, the addict starts using more and more heroin to counter that tolerance. The drug ruins human lives, and is illegally traded on a global scale.

Statistics show that around 20 million people are addicted to heroin and related drugs (opiates) around the globe. This also results in them suffering from other diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis C due to the sharing of needles. Putting an end to this addiction is a must for those struggling and a heroin vaccine might be the answer.

Types of Therapy

As mentioned above, the best approach for cocaine addiction treatment is a combination of medication management and therapies to overcome the behavioral challenges of substance abuse. At first, there will be assessments to not only to determine the levels of drugs in the patients system, but also to identify the presence of illness or mental disorders that may have been caused by substance abuse. Many treatment centers perform detox under the supervision of a medical team. Medication may be used to reduce the severity of cocaine withdrawal symptoms.

Medical assistance will also be provided if there are any health-related concerns for the patient. The standard therapy program in an Jersey City rehab center is the 12-step model. In addition, individual therapy with a counselor is also scheduled where the patient learns more about cocaine addiction and its negative effects. This may involve both cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT). These deal with psychological aspects of the addiction which enable the patient to change his or her perception toward drug dependence.

Over the last few years, prescription drug abuse has escalated dramatically. With easy access through the internet, more people than ever are able to purchase these addictive medications with little or no scrutiny. Secondly, more and more pain clinics have opened their doors, creating another venue for people to access medication for pain. Before going any further, let us state that the majority of people addicted to prescription medications, started to abuse these medications after a legitimate prescription was written for them by their physician. The prescription may have been written because due chronic pain, auto or sports injury, surgery or to relax strained muscles.
