Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Allentown

By calling the Allentown drug rehab, you are taking that first step toward regaining control of your life, living drug free, and sober. What do you have to lose with so much to gain but breaking the chains in doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results? We will help you overcome your addictions.

Allentown Drug Rehab: A Place for Healing

As with most of our prospective clients, you arrive at our doors with an active addiction. We will place you in the Allentown drug detox center to help you work through your withdrawal symptoms under the strict supervision of our medically trained and licensed team of doctors, nurses, and psychiatrists. This program normally lasts from fourteen to thirty days, depending on your drug(s) of choice and how long you have been an addict.

How it Works

The meth vaccine works by preventing methamphetamine from entering the nervous system. This is done by attacking the drug while it is still within the bloodstream using the bodys immune system.

Since the addict will no longer be taking the drug, it will no longer enter the brain. This will in turn take away the incentive for use of the recreational drug.

On their own, meth molecules are too small to trigger an antibody response from the immune system. So unfortunately a meth addict is at the mercy of this powerful drug. In order to get the immune system involved, the meth vaccine, also known as M6 will link the meth molecule to a larger molecule, known as a carrier. This will trigger an antibody response causing the body to take action against the harmful meth molecules.

Meth Vaccines

The meth vaccine being developed by The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) to counter the effects of meth abuse is in early stages of research at the moment. Initial tests show promising signs on rats and other animals.

About two years ago, Kim Janda, a professor of TSRI and his colleagues developed 6 potential meth vaccines. Each vaccine had a chemical cognate of the meth molecule which was linked to a larger antibody-provoking molecule.

Trials were first conducted on mice and later, on rats. Three mice were able to give a powerful antibody reaction. After testing on rats, the experts noticed that vaccine MH6 performed exceptionally well. MH6 was able to prevent two typical effects caused by meth, namely increased physical activity and losing the normal ability for regulating body temperature.

Encouraged by this observation, the MH6 vaccine was studied further in more depth and tested with a varied experimental set up to see if the vaccine produced the same results. Amazingly enough, it did!

The experimentation also paved way from a valuable discovery. The vaccine was able to keep the drug out of the nervous system of the rats and stay only in the blood stream. This was the main cause for aiding the body to give a strong antibody response.
