Treatments for Opiate Addiction

The treatment for opiate addiction in Medford may be done in a hospital or residential like setting where addicts are provided medication, monitored and provided with support.

Support groups can be highly effective in opiate treatment.

If you feel that a loved one is addicted to opium then you should confront them and encourage them to seek treatment. In some cases it may be necessary to stage an intervention. Opiate addiction needs to be taken seriously as it can potentially lead to death.

Challenges

While the initial trials showed promising results, meth vaccine development is still in its early stages, and several challenges exist. For instance, the vaccine is not as long lasting as they should be for a successful meth addiction treatment. The effects subside after a few weeks, while addiction treatment can extend over a couple of years. A more significant question is whether the vaccine can reduce cravings or not. This same question is also being asked by researchers of cocaine and nicotine vaccines.

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 Withdrawal

When an individual abruptly stops use of Xanax then they might start experiencing withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are very similar to alcohol withdrawal. The intensity of the symptoms varies from individual to individual based on the longevity and amount of intake. The manner in which dosage is reduced also takes a part in how severe the symptoms will be.

Withdrawal symptoms of Xanax addiction may include:

  • Panic
  • Hallucination
  • Anxiety
  • Tremors
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Convulsion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Nightmares
