Battling Drug Addiction in Mechanicsburg

Take the First Step

The first step in finding help is realizing that you have a problem. Drug addiction is never kind. It sneaks up slowly on the most unsuspecting of victims and, before you realize it, where you once found relief, you now find only obsession and grief. Anyone can fall victim to the alluring charm of drugs, but their enigmatic appeal and softly reassuring whisper of relief carries with it a high price -- your self-respect, your family, your friends, your job and your pride.

Close the door on drug addiction and open a window on a brighter future. Enter into Mechanicsburg drug treatment today.

What Makes Cocaine so Addictive?

Cocaine doubles the amount of dopamine in the brain, a chemical responsible for pleasure and happiness. It artificially produces dopamine and increases its level in the brain causing ecstatic feeling.

This makes them start taking more in shorter periods of time to achieve the same feeling, thus causing a cocaine addiction.

Cocaine vaccine trials have been successful on primates thus far. But there is still some debate on whether destroying cocaine in the bloodstream can really treat addiction because even though the symptoms may be physical, addiction is essentially a condition of the brain. In fact, in one study it was shown that even when cocaine was eliminated from addicts bloodstream, cravings didnt subside which created the need for greater dosages which may or may not be conducive to the addict.
