The Effects of Heroin

Heroin addiction is most common since it a quick acting drug. It immediately enters the pleasure centers of the brain triggering a state of euphoria and relaxation and eliminating the ability to perceive pain.

Many concepts or models describing addiction have been presented over the years. Affordable Rehab of Eden Prairie embraces the disease and genetic models. It is our belief that these models best represent what the addicted person has to recover from. The disease model believes that addiction is an illness, derived as the result of an unhealthy or impaired neuro-chemical or behavioral processes. The genetic model focuses itself on the concept that there is a genetic predisposition to certain behaviors. It may be best described by stating that "many addictions seem to run in the family". Affordable Rehab of Eden Prairie helps families overcome addiction with quality addiction treatment options in caring drug rehab centers.

How it Works

The cocaine vaccine starts eating away at the cocaine drug while it is still in the bloodstream and blocks it off from reaching the brain. This means that the addict in Eden Prairie will no longer experience the high that results from use of the drug thereby eliminating the incentive for its use.

Not only is the cocaine vaccine effective in helping rehabilitate current addicts but also helps them in case of relapse since they will no longer be able to experience a high from the drug.

When the small molecular cocaine drug enters the brain it releases massive amounts of dopamine. The vaccine itself will be combined with bits of the common cold virus which will match the molecular structure of cocaine.

When the cocaine vaccine is released into the bloodstream the bodys immune system will kick into action upon identification of the common cold virus. This action will be taken against the cocaine virus dummy along with the cold virus and will teach the body to treat cocaine as an intruder. Once blood cells will regard cocaine as an antibody, they will eliminate it from the bloodstream naturally.

Effects of Prescription Medication Addiction

In most cases, addiction to prescription medication is the direct result of the medication being appropriately prescribed for legitimate medical problems. The person rarely had any preconceived plans to abuse the medication, but two factors come into play. The individual may experience some relief from the drug, in conjunction with experiencing the euphoric feeling produced by many prescription medications. Whether it is due to the reduction in pain or an elevation in pleasurable feelings, the person begins to take additional medication. This decision is usually made independent of the physician who prescribed the medication and before the person realizes it, they find themselves with a mental obsession regarding the medication and a craving for more.

People have also been known to take prescription medication to deal with emotional problems. The only thing most of these medications do for emotional problems are "mask or numb" the actual feelings. Although the person may not experience the feeling or focus on the problem at a particular moment, in most cases, the problem is just exasperated by not learning how to effectively cope with the particular issue.

Lastly, people have been found to mix alcohol with prescription medications to accentuate the feeling of euphoria. They like to refer to this mixture as a "cocktail". What this creates is the potential for an overdose and should be avoided at all costs.
