Selectivity = the relationship between the affinity of a compound for a particular receptor and its affinity for other types of opioid receptor. For instance, a compound that will bind with high affinity to the mu-receptors, but with very low affinity to kappa and delta receptors, is said to possess high selectivity for mu.
The characterization of ephedrine in the 1920s led to an interest in developing and testing similar drugs. Ephedrine was being widely used to treat asthma and there was an interest in finding a synthetic substitute for this drug. Amphetamine, a drug similar in structure and activity to ephedrine, arose from this interest. Although amphetamine had been synthesized almost 40 years earlier, the interest in ephedrine led to the further characterization and use of this drug. Since then, many analogs of amphetamine have been developed and characterized, including the street drug, methamphetamine.
Addiction to hydromorphone and other prescription painkillers is one of the major reasons behind admittance to drug rehabilitation clinics. Treatment for opiate addiction has been occurring in the United States since the early part of the twentieth century. In these early days of treatment, doctors in private practice prescribed narcotics to those addicted to opiate drugs. Later, governments outlawed this practice and began operating clinics where morphine could be obtained by addicts. Eventually, these clinics were also closed. At that point in time, addicts began to be treated in public health hospitals or placed in jail.
For the period between 1994 and 2000, there has been a 16 percent rise in drug-related emergency department visits and a 22 percent increase in drug mentions. Among illegal substances of abuse, severalshowed increased usage from 1999 to 2000: heroin, amphetamines, methamphetamines, ecstasy, PCP, and combinations of these. In 1994, emergency department mentions of so-called club drugs such as ecstasy and GHB were extremely low, but recently they have shown tremendous growth. This probably indicates an important emerging trend, which has already been documented in the media.
Tolerance to a drug takes place when an individual is exposed to the same drug repeatedly and begins to build up an resistance to the drugs effects. The body then adapts and develops a tolerance for the drug. The addiction that is produced is so powerful that it creates cravings in the user. These cravings for the drug are the result of its impact on the individual's memory with feelings of pleasantness and euphoria which the individual has come to associate with the taking of the drug.
A drug overdose occurs when you consume more drugs than your body can tolerate. Drug users are constantly flirting with the risk of a drug overdose. There is a
fine line between the high they're seeking and serious injury or death. While many victims of drug overdose recover without long term effects, there
can be serious consequences. Some drug overdoses cause the failure of major
organs like the kidneys or liver, or failure of whole systems like the
respiratory or circulatory systems. Patients who survive drug overdose may need
kidney dialysis, kidney or liver transplant, or ongoing care as a result of
heart failure, stroke, or coma. Death can occur in almost any drug overdose
situation, particularly if treatment is not started immediately.
Detox is necessary when an individual through their chronic use of drugs or alcohol has developed an addiction. The objective of detox is to help the individual achieve a drug and alcohol free state. Detox is intended to relieve the physical symptoms of withdrawal and helps prepare the individual for entry into drug rehabilitation. Therefore, the ultimate goal of detox is preparation for long term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
Alcoholism, also known as "alcohol dependence," is a condition that includes craving and continued alcohol abuse despite repeated drinking-related problems, such as losing a job or getting into trouble with the law. It includes four major areas:Craving: - A strong need, or compulsion, to drink. Impaired control: -The inability to limit one's drinking on any given occasion. Physical dependence: -Withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety, when alcohol use is stopped after a period of heavy drinking. Tolerance: - The need for increasing amounts of alcohol in order to feel its effects.
Drug rehabilitation is a place or program that an individual enters to treat a drug or alcohol addiction. Through therapy and education, the individual is restored to their former non-drug using self. They are then able to re-enter society clean and sober. There are many reasons why a person would need to attend a drug rehabilitation program. Some of the many reasons are: the inability to control their drinking or drug use, alienating their friends and family, problems with the law, and problems at work. Also, there are several different types of drug rehabilitation programs available: inpatient, outpatient, residential, short-term, and long-term.
