Harbor Village Florida comments on new research that could be useful in treating drug addiction.

As reported by The Wall Street Journal's Market Watch in the article Blocking Memories Could Help Treat Drug Addiction (7/8), researchers from the United Kingdom have recently come up with a breakthrough discovery that drug addiction may be treatable through blocking the brain's memory receptors. There are certain parts of the human brain that can become programmed to remember the affects of drug abuse and cause addiction and relapse. Memories of the effects given off by drugs can cause a person to engage in drug abuse repeatedly. Previous studies on rats have showed that it is possible to alter or block the memory receptors of the brain by either altering a gene or blocking certain chemicals in the brain. While this research is still in its early stages, researchers believe that any testing of this method on humans would need to take place in a monitored medical environment.

Drug addiction is a powerful state that can be very difficult to break. Many recovering addicts often fall victim to relapse because their brains are programmed with memories of drug abuse and addiction. Currently, the most effective methods of drug abuse treatment are detoxification and rehab, in which medical professionals help addicts eliminate drugs from their bodies and recover from the process.
