Drug and Alcohol Questions

I have a question, which neurotransmitter is disrupted when someone uses cocaine? How does cocaine effect the brain and is it different from how heroin effects the brain?

My boyfriend’s brother and his girlfriend are “P” addicts and now that she is a few weeks pregnant, they are wanting to keep the baby.

I do not think this is a good idea but everybody is telling me to mind my own business. How could I when I am studying towards early childhood education and childrens’ health is my main concern?

I need advise!!

Could you answer a question for me please? I understand that addiction can and, often is genetic. My question is how that relates to someone who is a manic depressive?

Is there not a chemical make-up in the brain of an addict that prevents them from stopping their addiction, much like a person with depression
has a chemical issue in their brain preventing them from not feeling depressed?

With regard to the depressed person, has anything been developed to change that chemical imbalance other than the regular anti-depressants and if not, could there ever be such a thing?

My girlfriend, a manic depressant, says she does
not understand why an addict cannot just quit after going through treatment. To which I said it’s much like her issue with being depressed.

To a certain extent, they cannot control it. And she vehemently disagrees and say they are very different. I said it’s strange someone in your position isn’t more sympathetic to someone with addiction.

You can imagine how well that went over huh? Nevertheless, please help me get it straight and hopefully help me win this disagreement. 🙂

I finally told her, “Oh honey, you’re not depressed, you’re just bummed I’m right? LOL

Is there a chemical balance issue with regard to some with addiction?

Thank you for your time. If there is ever a drug that can correct that imbalance in a depressed person I understand they’d be a zillionaire but, I
need the first bottle okay?

What I can’t understand is he works 7am to 6pm, 5 days a week an I am wondering how does he go through the day?

Is it possible how can he manage this an be addicted to heroin?

Please tell me side effects of OxyConton (meth?)

How long can someone be on it and cover up side effects

How much is it for a drug addict (that is on the street)

The reason is I think a loved one is on this drug-

Does it make one lie habitually ?

(maybe reason is to get next fix)

Please tell me how to find out what drug this person may be on-I need to help

Symptoms of this person was a personality change almost over night or
certainly within a short period of time-habitual lying (HUGE lies) -cold
hatred- ran away from parents -lied about them-won’t return

Very concerning

I am ready to end a 4 year relationship with a man who has mental/alcohol/drug problems (I only started finding out about this a year and a half into our relationship).

I need to know where to find support/counseling in the Kansas City, Kansas area.
