Put a Stop to Your Addiction with Chicopee Drug Rehab

Cocaine Withdrawal

Cocaine is an extremely popular drug in Chicopee as it increases the number of biochemicals released in the brain resulting in a feeling of extreme joy. When cocaine usage is halted, the user will experience a sudden crash almost immediately. The crash will be accompanied with cravings for more cocaine.

Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal include:

  • Lack of pleasure
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Sleepiness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic headaches
  • Suicidal Tendencies

How Heroin Vaccine Works

A vaccine for heroin addiction is a great plus for all addicts. This is because surviving a heroin addiction can be a painful and difficult process, especially because even after treatment there is always a risk of a relapse. This vaccine is beneficial in helping addicts even after a potential relapse.

The vaccine works by tricking the immune system of the body into thinking of heroin as a pathogen (bacteria or a virus). This then results in the body to produce antibodies against the drug which help keep the drug away from the brain. The brain is the region where the high is produced. So if the drug does not reach the brain then no sense or feeling of euphoria can be produced.

How Does Addiction Develop

When you try a drug for the first time, it produces exaggerated effects. Some of these might be psychological in nature; however, a majority of the effects are drug induced. As you continue to engage in the activity of taking drugs and enjoying its pleasurable effects, you begin to reach a state where the dosage does not produce the required effects. This is when you develop what is called a tolerance for the drug.

Under this phenomenon, your body grows accustomed to the drug. Now, whenever you take the dosage that you are accustomed to, your body does not experience the usual high. This of course forces you to increase your drug intake. And the vicious cycle of addiction begins because now you have to continually increase your dosage just to feel a regular high.

Now that you are physiologically dependent on the drug, the chemical balance of your body is changed. At this point, you will realize that you need the drug. This will scare you because you do not want to be dependent on it, so the instant reaction is to stop. Unfortunately, this only further aggravates your health condition because you start to suffer from what are called, withdrawal symptoms.

Since access to the brain is blocked, the heroin that remains in the blood stream gets broken down by enzymes in the body. This broken down heroin eventually loses its effect and is removed from the body.

Developing a Heroin Vaccine was a Challenge

When heroin gets broken down by the body, it metabolizes in several different byproducts including morphine which is responsible for the high experienced with the drug. Therefore, a versatile vaccine needed to be created that could combat the effect of all these byproducts.
