Recovery from heroin addiction is an extended process, which usually requires ongoing professional support.
In order to achieve recovery, the individual needs to learn tools to deal with potentially problematic situations or issues that may arise, in order to ensure that they do not fall back into the existing pattern of dependency.
Almost all addicts tell themselves in the beginning that they can conquer their addiction on their own without the help of outside resources. Unfortunately, this is not usually the case.
When an addict makes an attempt at detoxification and to discontinue drug use without the aid of professional help, statistically the results do not last long.
Research into the effects of long-term addiction has shown that substantial changes in the way the brain functions are present long after the addict has stopped using drugs.
Realising that a person who wishes to recover from their addiction needs more than just strong will power is the key to a successful recovery.
