Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Chesapeake

Effects of Prescription Medication Addiction

In most cases, addiction to prescription medication is the direct result of the medication being appropriately prescribed for legitimate medical problems. The person rarely had any preconceived plans to abuse the medication, but two factors come into play. The individual may experience some relief from the drug, in conjunction with experiencing the euphoric feeling produced by many prescription medications. Whether it is due to the reduction in pain or an elevation in pleasurable feelings, the person begins to take additional medication. This decision is usually made independent of the physician who prescribed the medication and before the person realizes it, they find themselves with a mental obsession regarding the medication and a craving for more.

People have also been known to take prescription medication to deal with emotional problems. The only thing most of these medications do for emotional problems are "mask or numb" the actual feelings. Although the person may not experience the feeling or focus on the problem at a particular moment, in most cases, the problem is just exasperated by not learning how to effectively cope with the particular issue.

Lastly, people have been found to mix alcohol with prescription medications to accentuate the feeling of euphoria. They like to refer to this mixture as a "cocktail". What this creates is the potential for an overdose and should be avoided at all costs. If you require additional information on prescription medication addiction or need to locate a treatment center able to effectively treat this problem, please call Affordable Rehab of Chesapeake at call (703) 997-9331 and we will be more than happy to assist you.

How Do Vaccines Work

Vaccines introduce a tiny amount of a disease (usually in weakened or dead form) or something that resembles the chemical make-up of a disease into a persons bloodstream. This triggers the immune system to identify the illness and create antibodies which help to stop the particular disease in its tracks.

But cocaine being much smaller than a microbe is almost invisible to the human immune system once it enters the bloodstream. This is why the development of a cocaine vaccine for the past couple of years has involved attaching the vaccine to a virus for easy identification by the immune system.
