Opiate Dependence

Psychological dependence to opiates increases with increased intake of the drug. Addicted people make opiate consumption their primary focus in life and since people become tolerant to it quickly, they start taking more and more of the drug which is not good. A high dosage of the drug can cause death in people due to respiratory or cardiac arrest. People can sometimes overdose on it by mistake because they want to get a higher euphoric effect out of it. Since tolerance to the drug increases quickly, it is easy to overdose on it.

How Can a Meth Vaccine Help Treat Addiction in Lorain

Methamphetamine (or meth as it is popularly known) has become one of the most common and destructive recreational drugs in the United States. Meth falls in the same category as drugs like cocaine, but its stimulatory effects are 50 times stronger. While authorities in the state of Lorain close down meth labs each year, addicts (especially teenagers) are easily acquiring it from the streets.

Meth intake releases high levels of dopamine, creating powerful sensations in the brain. This is why meth becomes highly addictive and causes severe withdrawal symptoms when the addict tries to abstain. While traditional methods of addiction treatment prove to be effective, scientists are actively looking for ways to reduce dependency.

One concept that has been under development for a long time is a vaccine that can stop a drug that has entered into the bloodstream from going into the brain. Along with a meth vaccine, similar research is in progress for drugs like cocaine and nicotine as well.

Effects of Xanax Abuse:

The drug is a depressant of the central nervous system. Therefore, the effects of abuse are mostly on the brain functions.

Some of the effects include:

  • Slurred speech
  • Lack of coordination
  • Disorientation
  • Confusion

Sometimes, with excessive and long time use, some people also start suffering from short term memory loss. Severe sedation can also be experienced by taking in large amounts of xanax, this sedation can last for a few days.
