Another medication which can be used is LAAM. It is also a synthetic opiate like methadone used for the treatment of heroin addiction. It can block the effects for up to 72 hours when taken orally. It eliminates the need for daily dosing and weekend home doses because of the longer duration for which it lasts. For this reason, it was approved in 1993 to be used for treatment purposes.
Although there are different treatment methods and drugs available for the treatment of heroin addiction, controlling the availability of this drug is a crucial aspect that needs to be stressed upon. In Brockton , the rising trend of heroin addiction attributes to mainly cheap availability of heroin which should be curbed in order to suppress substance abuse.

Effects of Meth Use
There are extremely harmful effects associated with meth use which devastate lives. This is why meth addiction must be addressed immediately. Special care is needed especially on the part of family and friends since the meth addict in Brockton has very little control over their drug use. The effects of meth addiction are rapid and extreme.
Some effects are:
- excessive sweating
- insomnia, tremors, jaw clenching
- irritability, agitation, violence, confusion and panic
- increased blood pressure, rising body temperature and blood sugar levels
- constriction of the artery walls
- compulsive fascination
- rapid decay and falling out of teeth
The above effects may start showing after extreme use of meth. Meth addiction, even if used sparingly can cause extreme harm to the human body. Additionally, if the addict has an overdose of methamphetamine, the effects may be much worse.
