Treatment for inhalant abuse may be on horizon.
The elimination of craving in which the rats express preference for a place where they once had access to a drug is a phenomenon that has now been seen in studies of GVG for nicotine, heroin and inhalant abuse. "The findings of this study extend the potential value of GVG to treat addiction," said Stephen Dewey, lead researcher and a Brookhaven neuroanatomist. "More importantly, our results show promise in treating inhalant abuse as it continues to grow as a problem among adolescents."
