Xanax Addiction Treatment in Worcester

Back in the 1990s, heroin addiction became rampant in Worcester, ending the lives of several young people. While heroin addiction seemed to wane over the years, the state has been hit by a new kind of drug problem. An increasing number of people, especially women, have become hooked on pain relief pills such as Xanax. Xanax addiction is also common among teenagers in Worcester, who are known to use prescription drugs for nonmedical purposes. Xanax addiction is disastrous, and prescription drug abuse mortalities have grown four-fold in the last decade.

Opiate Withdrawal

Opiate dependence means it can be very hard for a person to quit taking the drug. Some of the withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate include:

  • Nausea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Sweating
  • Chills
  • Vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Dilated pupils
  • Muscle aches
  • Bone pains
  • Insomnia
  • Trembling

Tolerance for this drug builds quickly therefore the user feels the need to consume more and more of it. Opiate withdrawal symptoms are usually not life threatening but in some cases, depending on how addicted the person is to them and for how long they have been taking them, the symptoms can become excessive and dangerous.

Seeking Help for Opiate Addiction in Worcester

Understanding Opiate Addiction

Opiate addiction develops due to consumptions of different types of opiates. All opiates are extracted from the opium poppy plant, but what makes each different is the way that they are processed and synthesized.

Different opiates include morphine, heroin, codeine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, opium and thebian. All opiates affect the brain in the same way; they attack the reward center and block the pain. Prescription opiates are given for dealing with reducing pain but with opiate addiction, the central nervous system is damaged in such a way the user becomes physically dependent on opiates for the brain to function normally.

Meth Vaccine Trials

A team at TSRI (The Scripps Research Institute) has developed several compounds that they believe can bring the meth vaccine concept to fruition. These compound were tested on rats, and one of them (MH6) did show positive effects.

When lab rats became high on meth, they were seen to have abnormally high levels of energy, and their body temperature increased significantly. The compound MH6 helped to curb both these conditions, and it also created a health antibody response. The basic idea of a vaccine is to fuel the creation of antibodies that will fight off diseases in the body. A similar effect generated by MH6 compelled researchers to believe that the vaccine was preventing meth from reaching the nervous system.

A different research group reports that studies for antibody-based addiction treatment also show promising results. In this study antibodies for meth are grown through standard biotechnology methods. The problem is that these particular methods are highly costly, which will discourage meth addicts from using it.
