Put a Stop to Your Addiction with Waltham Drug Rehab

Causes of Drug Addiction

Some people are more prone to drug addiction than others, but all usually start recreationally or when they suffer from excessive stress and anxiety. The people who are constantly surrounded by occasional users of these drugs tend to have higher chances of being addicts.

Other facts that can cause addiction are your surrounding environment, family history for addiction, and your genes.

This addiction can further develop over time if you are not careful. People start relying on these drugs either because they make them feel good, or because they stop them from feeling bad about something.

Current Tests

Currently tests for the meth vaccine are being run on rats since their biological make up is similar to that of humans. Results of the test showed that the M6 was effective in blocking out two effects of the methamphetamine drug. The first was the lack of regulation in body temperature and the other was the increase in physical activity.

This means that addicts in Waltham will regain control of their body temperature by use of the meth vaccine. This in turn will reduce the risk of stroke or cardiac arrest.

The decrease in physical activity would cause the meth high to be diminished which will reduce the incentive to use the recreational drug.

So far, the meth vaccine has been effective in reducing the harmful effects of the drug. The vaccine also reduces the highs that meth produces. The next step is to test this vaccination on human subjects.

Cocaine

Although the number of cocaine addicts has declined over the last couple of decades, in the U.S., the amount of cocaine consumed hasnt. Findings by the Rand Corporation imply that over two-thirds of the U.S. demand for cocaine is accounted for by chronic users.

Cocaine addiction may result in:

  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Difficulty in swallowing food
  • Nose bleeding

The psychological effects are also as dangerous as the physical ones. Many people are known to take prescription medication to calm themselves, but consumption and its subsequent withdrawal symptoms can actually worsen any mental condition that they are suffering from. Also note that addicts can experience life-threatening convulsions, but this only happens on rare occasions.

Medications may also be used to curb these symptoms, such as clonidine, suboxone, and methadone. In-patient facilities even offer therapy sessions (both group and individual), along with educational lectures.

Outpatient programs, on the other hand, may require you to check in with a counselor every day, or stay at the center for eight hours each day.
