Substance Abuse Treatment

The reliance on opiates as an external supply source to cure pain becomes essential to consumption due to degeneration of the nerve cells. Opiates damage the brain cells in a way that the nerve system is unable to produce endorphins. Endorphins, also known as endogenous opiates are the natural painkillers that the body produces to cure pain initially.

In the absence of endorphins, the body is unable to stop pain making a person physically and psychologically dependent on opiate for the purpose of removing pain and inducing sleep.

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.

Nerve Damage With Opiate Use

Nerve damage in the brain can happen with prolonged opiate usage. These nerves are responsible for producing the bodys natural pain killers. As a result the body stops responding to any kind of pain experienced and hence the user becomes dependent on an external source of pain reliever which is opiates. Naturally this then results in opiate addiction.
