How Heroin Vaccine Works

A vaccine for heroin addiction is a great plus for all addicts. This is because surviving a heroin addiction can be a painful and difficult process, especially because even after treatment there is always a risk of a relapse. This vaccine is beneficial in helping addicts even after a potential relapse.

The vaccine works by tricking the immune system of the body into thinking of heroin as a pathogen (bacteria or a virus). This then results in the body to produce antibodies against the drug which help keep the drug away from the brain. The brain is the region where the high is produced. So if the drug does not reach the brain then no sense or feeling of euphoria can be produced.

Consequences of Prescription Drug Abuse

In addition to the physical addiction created by prescription drug abuse, a person may also experience:

  • Deterioration in personal relationships
  • Employment difficulties due to a lack of concentration and motivation
  • Financial difficulties
  • Legal problems
  • Psychological difficulties

Treating Cocaine Addiction

Unlike heroin and alcohol, withdrawal from cocaine addiction has no visible physical symptoms like vomiting, itching, and trembling but the level of craving after withdrawal exceeds that of other substances. People with high dependency on cocaine, often resort to alcohol, sedatives, and anti-anxiety medicines like xanax; although in most cases this just shifts the addiction from one substance to the other.

Rehab centers can help withstand the symptoms of withdrawal both medicinally and emotionally. Group therapies, counseling and motivational interviews help build strong psychological and emotional defenses against the drug decreasing the chance of relapse. Treating cocaine addiction in Boston involves the redirection of thoughts and actions that can lead to usage; this can be achieved successfully in rehab, where the environment is perfect for addicts to overcome emotional disorders and cravings.

Current Treatment Methods

While the vaccine is still in its development stages, heroin addiction is increasing by the day. Traditional inpatient and outpatient programs in a Boston dual diagnosis rehab center prove effective in treating addicts. In fact, even if human testing proves to be successful, addicts would still have to rely on professional rehabilitation to go completely drug free because:

  1. The vaccine only kills cravings for heroin and not other drugs,
  2. The heroin still remains in the blood stream to do its damage

If you or a loved is facing heroin addiction issues, seek professional help immediately.
