are you aware of any medications or herbs that can supress the urges to use cocaine
| Response from Mr. Vergel
I recommend that you read this great report on current medications that are approved for the treatment of addiction and some that are in development right now. It was written by Darryl S. Inaba, Pharm. D., CADC III- Clinical Manager, Genesis of Asante Health System, Central Point, Oregon.
Treatment hardly works without going to support groups and counseling. You may want to find out where the closest AA meeting is: A.A. Meetings
Good luck with your recovery. I do not have to remind you that cocaine and other drugs are not good for the immune system, mental health, and medication adherence. You probably know that already.
Let us know how things go with you, please.
