Available Substance Abuse Services to Consider

Universally, one of the most important aspects to your rehabilitation is the detox process. Residential treatment centers that offer an on-site detox program present a substantially higher rate of success. Additionally, detox programs that are medically-monitored offer the safest and most comfortable experience.

The next area of concern is with the substance abuse services offered during your rehabilitation. These may be represented by holistic services like yoga, art therapy and meditation or by more traditional methods such as psychological or family therapy and medication, or a combination of both.

Equally important is finding a treatment center that is capable of handling any other secondary health issues you may be living with. These can include additional addictions, eating disorders, dual diagnosis, medical complications and more.

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.

Xanax addicts are always thinking about obtaining xanax when they are out of it. The drug becomes their primary focus in life and they cannot survive without it. Withdrawal symptoms are particularly bad for this drug which is why it is said that prevention is better than addiction. Cognitive problems can arise which makes it difficult for a person to construct proper words or sentences.

With the use of xanax, tolerance is built up in an instant. Consequently more and more of the drug is needed with no satisfaction in sight. The worse thing is, when users cannot find access to this drug, they start consuming other drugs to take care of their withdrawal symptoms.

The withdrawal symptoms could include:

  • Seizures
  • Weight loss
  • Sweating
  • Sleep disorders
  • Aggression
  • Tingling of hands and feet

In our Waltham Rehab Center our team of experts help ease the withdrawal symptoms during the weaning off process.
