In a major breakthrough, an international team of scientists has proven that addiction to morphine and heroin can be blocked, while at the same time increasing pain relief.
A major breakthrough in the treatment of morphine and heorin addiction was found. Scientists have discovered a way to stop the addiction of both heroin and morphine while still acting as a pain killer. This will potentially lead to a new drug that can prevent the addiction of morphine and heroin, both of which are highly addictive drugs. This is how the drug works: "The drug (+)-naloxone automatically shuts down the addiction. It shuts down the need to take opioids, it cuts out behaviours associated with addiction, and the neurochemistry in the brain changes -- dopamine, which is the chemical important for providing that sense of 'reward' from the drug, is no longer produced."
