1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

The Mechanistic Classification of Addictive Drugs

The Mechanistic Classification of Addictive Drugs

  1. Lunar Loops
    Drugs have diverse molecular targets in the brain, they share the common initial effect of increasing the concentration of dopamine released from mesocorticolimbic projections. In this article they review recent research that has advanced our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying this increase of dopamine. Based on this research, they propose a new classification for addictive drugs that they believe may help in directing research towards more effective treatment of addiction.
