Dubocovich Says Study Shows Exercise and Controlled Intake of Meth May be Powerful Addiction Treatment

Updated November 16, 2016

An article about a new study that found that exercise along with controlled intake of methamphetamine prior to withdrawal could be a powerful new tool to treat meth addiction quotes Margarita L. Dubocovich, PhD, SUNY Distinguished Professor and chair of pharmacology and toxicology, who said meth users live in a state akin to constant jet-lag.

“This increases their craving for the drug,” she said. “Research shows that the success of rehabilitation and prevention of relapse is linked to the degree to which an addict’s body clock is disturbed.”
