Drug Rehab Treatment

Vaccine for drug abuse treatment is not a new idea. The first vaccine itself was developed in the 18th century to inoculate people against small pox. The result was a 100% success. Since then, scientists have invested vast amounts of time and resources attempting to prevent other conditions as well. Currently, there are two major research teams actively engaged in developing a vaccine for clinical trials: The group led by Kim Janda, Ph.D, of the Scripps Research Institute, and Thomas Kosten, M.D, of the Baylor College of Medicine. Kostens team ran the first ever late-stage cocaine vaccine trial with their vaccine TA-CD 3 years ago.

Treatment of Prescription Medication Addiction

Due to the physical dependence created by abusing prescription medication, addiction treatment begins in a residential treatment facility. The initial phase of treatment is detox. It is here, under medical supervision, that the symptoms associated with withdrawal from prescription medication are managed, reduced and some times eliminated. The average length of time spent in detox is approximately seven days. During this time, the person will be monitored medically and any psychiatric or psychological issues will be assessed.

After the person is medically stable, they are generally referred to residential treatment to complete the treatment plan designed in detox. By the time most people enter treatment for prescription medication addiction, they have created quite a bit of emotional damage to themselves and loved ones. It takes time to recover from shame, grief, guilt, and rebuild a level of trust amongst the family. Recovery in a supportive therapeutic environment eliminates many of the outside distractions and allows a person to focus on issues relating to their recovery. The length of stay is approximately twenty days and may be followed by outpatient therapy.

Over the last few years, prescription drug abuse has escalated dramatically. With easy access through the internet, more people than ever are able to purchase these addictive medications with little or no scrutiny. Secondly, more and more pain clinics have opened their doors, creating another venue for people to access medication for pain. Before going any further, let us state that the majority of people addicted to prescription medications, started to abuse these medications after a legitimate prescription was written for them by their physician. The prescription may have been written because due chronic pain, auto or sports injury, surgery or to relax strained muscles.

The Challenge Remains

Even though the heroin vaccine being developed displays positive signs in terms of treating heroin addiction, the most important part of human testing is yet to take place. Before doing so, the institute needs financial help to conduct clinical trials and proceed with their research and development.

The process can be time-consuming and might not be as effective with human beings. If it turns out to be effective among human beings and it helps the treatment process, then heroin addicts in Toledo can look forward to a possible new treatment that will bring them closer to recovery. Unfortunately, there are still a few complications with the vaccine. For instance, the heroin being blocked from entering the brain still remains in the bloodstream, which is harmful for the user.

This means a heroin detox is still needed to remove the drug from the persons bloodstream and other treatment methods including therapies and counseling will continue.
