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.

Rate of Recovery

It is interesting to see the statistics, 12% of addicts are reported to remain sober for 2-3 years after treatment. The recovery rate is low as doctors do not fully understand the treatment of meth abuse as compared to other well known drug abuse. A single dose of Meth remains in the body for up to nearly 6 months. In comparison Meth treatment programs last just 14 days. This short time period is not enough to treat drug abuse which has serious physical and behavioral implications.

Marijuana

Considered to be the gateway to stronger and heavier illicit drugs, marijuana is by far the most popular illegal drug. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health 2010, 76.8 percent of all drug users consumed marijuana (17.1 million users). The chemical imbalance in the brain caused by the use of marijuana affects memory and learning abilities. Also, it is one of the main causes of infertility in males and marijuana also causes testosterone levels in females to rise causing irregular menstrual cycles.
