Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Syracuse

What are Withdrawal Symptoms?

When your body fails to receive the required everyday dosage for a drug, you might feel nauseated or physically weak accompanied by sweating, palpitation, and pains in different parts of the body. These symptoms can make it very difficult to immediately stop your drug addiction because now you are dependent upon the drug.

Cocaine Vaccine: A Breakthrough in Addiction Treatment

Cocaine is an addictive drug which reduces the effects of pain and is one of the most powerful natural stimulants available in Syracuse .

Initially used for medical and anesthetic purposes the drug found its way onto the streets and has become a severe threat to individuals and communities.

The reason behind the popularity of the drug is the euphoric sensation felt by addicts as a result of the use of the drug. The euphoric sensation is triggered by a stimulation of key pleasure centers in the brain. Dependency on the drug however occurs when the body starts creating a tolerance to the drug thereby reducing its effects. This is why there is the need for the development of a cocaine vaccine in Syracuse .

Affecting the Brain

Cocaine is a stimulant drug which enters the brain and instantly causes a feeling of intense pleasure. It achieves this through producing more chemicals in the brain responsible for causing the feeling of happiness. Under normal circumstances, the brain produces normal levels of dopamine but cocaine increases the release of dopamine and prevents re-absorption back into the nerve cells.

Test Trials

The test trials have proven successful. The cocaine vaccine has passed its pre-testing trials on rats and non-human primates. It is all set to be tested on humans within the next 7-8 months. Biologically, non-human primates are reported to being closer to humans than rats. Test results have shown that vaccinated primates showed a decreased activity to cocaine than non-vaccinated primates.

The cocaine occupancy level of the dopamine transporter which is 40% to achieve a high, dropped to 20% with the use of the vaccine. The results of vaccine lasted about 13 weeks in rats and 7 weeks in non-human primates.

Researchers are not sure about the amount of vaccine and number of times it would have to be given to humans to achieve the desired results. One thing is for sure is that the breakthrough of a cocaine vaccine will prove to be enormously beneficial for cocaine addicts in Syracuse as well as those around the country who wish to remove this harmful drug from their life.
