Currently tests for the meth vaccine are being run on rats since their biological make up is similar to that of humans. Results of the test showed that the M6 was effective in blocking out two effects of the methamphetamine drug. The first was the lack of regulation in body temperature and the other was the increase in physical activity.
This means that addicts in Bedford Heights will regain control of their body temperature by use of the meth vaccine. This in turn will reduce the risk of stroke or cardiac arrest.
The decrease in physical activity would cause the meth high to be diminished which will reduce the incentive to use the recreational drug.
So far, the meth vaccine has been effective in reducing the harmful effects of the drug. The vaccine also reduces the highs that meth produces. The next step is to test this vaccination on human subjects.
Methamphetamine enters the brain through sniffing, snorting or smoking the powder. It tricks the brain into producing more dopamine and epinephrine which are the pleasure and alertness inducing chemicals in the brain. Under Meth addiction the brain produces 10 times more units of these chemicals. This makes a person feel confident, happy, and invincible. With time higher doses are required to achieve the same state.
Because people are different and have different requirements, our Bedford Heights drug treatment program is personalized to suit your specific needs. Upon entering our center, you'll get the chance to talk to a professional member of our team concerning your addiction problem. You'll then get a physical exam by one of our doctors who will carefully diagnose your condition.
The psychological effects are also as dangerous as the physical ones. Many people are known to take prescription medication to calm themselves, but consumption and its subsequent withdrawal symptoms can actually worsen any mental condition that they are suffering from. Also note that addicts can experience life-threatening convulsions, but this only happens on rare occasions.
Medications may also be used to curb these symptoms, such as clonidine, suboxone, and methadone. In-patient facilities even offer therapy sessions (both group and individual), along with educational lectures.
Outpatient programs, on the other hand, may require you to check in with a counselor every day, or stay at the center for eight hours each day.
