Battling Drug Addiction in Chesapeake

Anti-Cocaine Vaccine Development Takes a Major Leap Forward

Chesapeake 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.

Effects of Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine addicts in Chesapeake that consume the drug orally are also prone to ulcers in the stomach. Infections are also fairly common among cocaine addicts.

Inpatient and Outpatient Programs

The treatments which are available include use of treatment drugs like methadone and Buprenorphine. These drugs help by blocking brain receptors that receive heroin which eventually decreases cravings. Inpatient programs help the abuser understand their addiction and guide them to a sober lifestyle. It helps patients recover by treating them through detoxification and use of medicine.

Outpatient programs, on the other hand, also use the same treatment methods but patients are not subjected to a treatment facility.
