According to the ScienceDaily (8/1) article, New Insight Into How Brain 'Learns' Cocaine Addiction, a new study conducted by Johns Hopkins reveal that a protein which is linked to learning in the brain can also be responsible for becoming addiction to cocaine.

Abuse of cocaine is treated at certified detox centers with a step-by-step process that allows the cocaine dependent individual to slowly wean off from the addictive drug.

As reported by ScienceDaily article, New Insight Into How Brain 'Learns' Cocaine Addiction, this study was published in the journal Cell, and may allow scientists and medical practitioners develop new methods for treating this problem.

"The broad question was why and how cocaine strengthened certain circuits in the brain long term, effectively re-wiring the brain for addiction," says Paul Worley, M.D., a professor in the Solomon H. Snyder Department of Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. "What we found in this study was how two very different types of systems in the brain work together to make that happen." Cocaine addiction, experts say, is among the strongest of addictions.
