Treatment for Heroin Addiction
A variety of effective treatments are available for heroin use disorder, both behavioral and pharmacological. Both approaches help to restore a degree of normalcy to brain function and behavior, resulting in increased employment rates and lower risk of HIV and other diseases and criminal behavior.
Although behavioral and pharmacological treatments can be extremely useful when utilized alone, research shows that for many people, integrating both types of treatments is the most effective approach.
