Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Buffalo

Since access to the brain is blocked, the heroin that remains in the blood stream gets broken down by enzymes in the body. This broken down heroin eventually loses its effect and is removed from the body.

Developing a Heroin Vaccine was a Challenge

When heroin gets broken down by the body, it metabolizes in several different byproducts including morphine which is responsible for the high experienced with the drug. Therefore, a versatile vaccine needed to be created that could combat the effect of all these byproducts.

How Can Meth Vaccines Possibly Help Fight Addiction in Buffalo

Meth addiction is becoming a growing problem in Buffalo. The easy access and availability of this highly dangerous drug is the lead cause for most people falling prey to this highly addictive drug. Doing meth one time in Buffalo is enough to blow a person out of his/her senses and opening the door to addiction.

Repeated usage can rob a person of physical and mental health, good looks, cognitive abilities, libido and the ability to experience pleasure.

Even though meth addicts are in dire need of help, there are no treatments for actually curing meth addiction due to its qualities of being much different from other commonly abused drugs. Experts have been trying hard to create a meth vaccine. The vaccine will counter the effects of this addictive drug and possible lead to immediate recovery.

Anti-Cocaine Vaccine Development Takes a Major Leap Forward

Buffalo is a state with many substance abuse problems. Second to marijuana in opiates, cocaine, haunts its addicts with serious ailments. Although several treatment options are available, cocaine does not have a vaccine available in the market just yet. Undergoing several lab tests, anti-cocaine vaccines provide a glimmer of hope for thousands of addicts who have failed to achieve any success through conventional treatment methods.

For about a century, researchers and pharmacists have tried to create vaccines for several drug addiction issues. The early 1970s saw scientist develop a vaccine for heroin addiction, from different derivatives of morphine. The research withered away though, due to the availability of methadone, which helped heroin addicts stop using the drug. Funded by the National Institute of Drugs Abuse, recently, researchers at Cornell Medical College have successfully tested an anti-cocaine vaccine in mice and primates.

Currently, thousands of people are suffering from cocaine addiction, and thus, treatment remains a high priority for the scientists working on the vaccine. While it may not be used as a sole treatment, a cocaine vaccine has a great potential as part of a larger treatment program in an Buffalo rehab center by ensuring the addicts sobriety by destroying any cocaine that enters the system even if they relapse.
