Abstract: 

Nowadays, a large number of scientists and researchers are working hard to find a way to treat drug addiction. Numerous methods have implemented in this regard including acupuncture, psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy (using Clonidine & Methadone) and herbaceous medicine. In this study a type of Aloe Vera (which is an herbaceous medicine) called Sukutra is compared with methadone and Clonidine with regard to the effects they have in treatment of mice that are addicted to morphine. Considering statistical results, and based on the observations, we concluded that injecting of 20mg/kg Aloe Vera to the addicted mice leads to best results by decreasing the symptoms and thus has the maximum effects in treating addiction when compared to methadone and Clonidine. Qualitative and quantitative examinations show that using 20mg/kg Aloe Vera in treating the addicted mice provides the maximum effects comparing with other dosages and after that methadone and Clonidine subsequently are the two most useful medications.
