PostHeaderIcon Does it Flip a Switch or Did the Light Go Off?

Researchers hooked rats on drugs without using any. What? How is that possible? Well, it seems to be a biological breakthrough in finding out what's going on inside the head of a drug addict -- biologically speaking. Many people have probably heard an addict or alcoholic describe their compulsive drug use as "a switch being flipped" and it seems that is what's happening.

This research gives new hope to addicts, parents, partners, and children of them, as well as friends and the community at large. Perhaps if research can show that there really is something different happening in an addict's brain when he or she uses a drug then there is hope for a cure.
