How Do Vaccines Work

Vaccines introduce a tiny amount of a disease (usually in weakened or dead form) or something that resembles the chemical make-up of a disease into a persons bloodstream. This triggers the immune system to identify the illness and create antibodies which help to stop the particular disease in its tracks.

But cocaine being much smaller than a microbe is almost invisible to the human immune system once it enters the bloodstream. This is why the development of a cocaine vaccine for the past couple of years has involved attaching the vaccine to a virus for easy identification by the immune system.

Marijuana

Considered to be the gateway to stronger and heavier illicit drugs, marijuana is by far the most popular illegal drug. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health 2010, 76.8 percent of all drug users consumed marijuana (17.1 million users). The chemical imbalance in the brain caused by the use of marijuana affects memory and learning abilities. Also, it is one of the main causes of infertility in males and marijuana also causes testosterone levels in females to rise causing irregular menstrual cycles.

Another medication which can be used is LAAM. It is also a synthetic opiate like methadone used for the treatment of heroin addiction. It can block the effects for up to 72 hours when taken orally. It eliminates the need for daily dosing and weekend home doses because of the longer duration for which it lasts. For this reason, it was approved in 1993 to be used for treatment purposes.

Although there are different treatment methods and drugs available for the treatment of heroin addiction, controlling the availability of this drug is a crucial aspect that needs to be stressed upon. In Duluth , the rising trend of heroin addiction attributes to mainly cheap availability of heroin which should be curbed in order to suppress substance abuse.

Heroin

A survey conducted by the Office of National Drug Control Policy found that while most heroin addicts are older, chronic users, this substance has gained popularity amongst teens and young adults. This is an increase from the number of users in the 1970s and 80s to now where around 600,000 Americans use heroin.

Another reason for the growing rise in the number of users is the variety of options for the way heroin can be consumed. 2 decades earlier, injecting was the only choice available, but the availability of high quality heroin makes snorting and smoking feasible options. The pleasant feel of the heroin high is usually accompanied by the nasty feeling of nausea, vomiting and itching.

Help is standing by 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
