Current Treatment Methods
While the vaccine is still in its development stages, heroin addiction is increasing by the day. Traditional inpatient and outpatient programs in a Brookline dual diagnosis rehab center prove effective in treating addicts. In fact, even if human testing proves to be successful, addicts would still have to rely on professional rehabilitation to go completely drug free because:
- The vaccine only kills cravings for heroin and not other drugs,
- The heroin still remains in the blood stream to do its damage
If you or a loved is facing heroin addiction issues, seek professional help immediately.

Affecting the Brain
Cocaine is a stimulant drug which enters the brain and instantly causes a feeling of intense pleasure. It achieves this through producing more chemicals in the brain responsible for causing the feeling of happiness. Under normal circumstances, the brain produces normal levels of dopamine but cocaine increases the release of dopamine and prevents re-absorption back into the nerve cells.
