There are receptors for nicotine in the brain. When smoke is inhaled, nicotine attaches to these receptors. This sends a message to a different part of the brain to release a chemical called dopamine. Dopamine gives a feeling of pleasure. But it only lasts for a short time. The body wants to repeat this feeling, so you keep smoking. Based on research, it is believed that CHANTIX (varenicline) works by activating these receptors and blocking nicotine from attaching to them. However, CHANTIX does not contain nicotine.
CHANTIX is proven to be effective, but it’s not a magic pill. For most people, smoking is both a physical and behavioral addiction. That’s why we also offer a support plan. CHANTIX can help reduce the urge to smoke. The counselors at Assisted Recovery Centers of Georgia can help you learn to break your smoking routine.
CHANTIX (varenicline) is a prescription medicine specifically developed to help adults quit smoking. It gives smokers a better chance of success than Zyban. Maybe you’ve tried quitting cold turkey. You may have tried nicotine gum or patches. But now there is another reason to try again. CHANTIX should be taken for 12 weeks.
At the Assisted Recovery Centers of Georgia, we believe that all addictions are medically based and therefore medically treatable. While CHANTIX will help curb the craving for nicotine, we will also help you live with the psychological addiction to smoking. For more information, feel free to call us at (888) 570-6391.
