Search for Medications to Treat Stimulant Dependence: A Reprint from “Addiction Science and Clinical Practice”
Kyle M. Kampman (au)
Progress in understanding the neurobiology of stimulant dependence has enabled researchers to identify medications whose pharmacological effects suggest that they might help patients initiate abstinence or avoid relapse. Several of these medications and a vaccine have shown encouraging results in clinical trials with cocaine-dependent patients. The search for a medical treatment for methamphetamine dependence started more recently, but at least one candidate medication has shown promise in early clinical testing. Treatment approaches that combine efficacious medications and empirically proven behavioral interventions, such as voucher-based reinforcement therapy, will almost certainly produce the best results.
