What is Addiction
New research has been developed that furthers the idea of addiction being a brain disease. Many people treat addiction like it’s a choice. They seem to disregard that drug use changes brain chemistry. Addiction is a disease, a side effect of drug use.
How Can We Help
As it stands right now, there aren’t any medications on the market for meth addiction. There aren’t treatments approved explicitly for that purpose. That doesn’t mean that medication treatment doesn’t work.
Some treatments that are already available might actually have an effect. These treatments could change the lives of people addicted to methamphetamines.
