For the last a couple of posts, we have been touching topics about known methods for curing addiction.
In this post, we are going to cover something that is new.
I’ll give you a bit of a teaser – it’s a new drug that may help eliminate addictions of any kind.
However, as great as this may sound, I think there is a need to approach the addiction problem as a whole. I will touch on that on the later on.
For now, its disclaimer time. By this I mean that before you do any kind of addiction treatment, I highly suggest that first consult with a professional. A professional’s opinion may provide great insights to winning your battles.
Keep in mind that consulting a professional does not automatically mean you will be admitting yourself to rehab. Remember, you are just looking for an opinion.
Now that we have covered our little disclaimer, let’s move to our topic.
New Drug To Cure Addiction?
First of all, this new drug has not yet been official approved by the FDA. However, it does show promising results. Plus, its application method is not in the realms of the ordinary.
Since the drug is not yet FDA approved, this may mean that your insurance won’t cover it yet. What about the application method? Let’s cover that now.
The amazing or disgusting, depends on how you see it, part of the drug is the application method.
Hear this! The drug is attached to your stomach. Then, the drug is slowly released in a period of 3 to 6 months. Also, the way it works is also something new.
How Does It Work?
The astonishing part of the drug is the effect. In a nutshell, it basically blocks the sensors that are linked to “euphoria”. Hence, it eliminates craving as using won’t give you that same effect as before you used this new drug.
Basically, the drug weans you off from that feeling that you get from using. By now, I bet you are curious as to the name of the drug.
The company of behind the drug is known as BicorRx. As of the moment, they are naming the drug as Naltrexone Implants.
Keep in mind that the drug is not yet approved by the FDA. However, some patients are already seeing great results.
Okay, now that we have coved the drug, is it really the magic pill for addiction?
In my opinion, the answer is a – Maybe.
The thing with addiction is, it’s a problem with the body and the mind. For some people, they got addicted because it’s a form of escape. That is the part in which this drug will never help.
On the upside, if this drug truly works, then you can focus on simply curing the psychological aspect of addiction. When it comes to the physical part, also known as cravings, well you got this Naltrexone to help you with that.
