Addiction Psychiatry & Medicine

People who are addicted to drugs often suffer from other health, occupational, legal, familial, and social problems that should be addressed concurrently. The best programs provide a combination of therapies and other services to meet an individual patient’s needs. Psychoactive medications, such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety agents, mood stabilizers, and antipsychotic medications, may be critical for treatment success when patients have co-occurring mental disorders such as depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. In addition, most people with severe addiction abuse multiple drugs and require treatment for all substances abused.
 
Nuclear medicine is the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment. The gamma-emitting tracer used in functional brain imaging is Hexa-methyl propylene amine oxide. 99mTc is a nuclear isomer emits gamma rays that can be detected by a gamma camera. Attaching it to HMPAO allows 99mTc to take up by brain tissue in a manner proportional to cerebral blood flow assessed with the nuclear gamma camera.
 
The information of magnetic resonance and nuclear imaging studies have on the brain dynamics of addiction has become a primary source of medication strategies. Brain imaging techniques helps scientists to observe drug effects while they are occurring in the brain and compare brain metabolism in drug-abusers and non-abusers. The results established that drug addiction is a disease of the brain, causing mental disorders, and pathways affecting reward and cognition.
