Alcohol & Drug Addiction Q & A

How alcohol and drug addiction affect the brain?

Chronic alcohol and drug abuse creates swelling and neurodegeneration in the brain, which scientists believe contributes to the addiction. Researchers have also found that alcohol and drug use reduces stem cell availability in the body. Animal studies show that overconsumption of alcohol can lead to a 50 to 90 percent decline in the availability of stem cells. The stem cells that are most affected by this are the ones found in the hippocampus of the brain. This part of the brain plays an important role in memory, spatial skills, and decision-making.  

What is stem cell therapy? 

Stem cell therapy basically refers to the use of stem cells to treat certain conditions. Stem cell therapy has become a vital part of regenerative medicine, which is an emerging branch of medicine focused on restoring organ and tissue function for patients with chronic disease or serious injury. Stem cell therapy is used to regenerate and repair tissue and organs that are damaged due to aging, injury, and disease.  

Can Stem Cell Therapy help patients with addiction?

Recent research has found that stem cell therapy can treat diseases like alcohol and drug addiction. During the treatment, healthy stem cells obtained from umbilical cord tissue are transplanted into patient’s body and the brain region, which helps reduce inflammation, repair damaged cells and restore the chemical balance of the brain and improve the functions of other affected areas such as liver, kidneys, lungs, and heart. 

In addition to Stem Cell Therapy, what other treatments for addiction are available at Vibrant Health Care?
