If you're addicted to heroin and want to stop, you can ask a GP or local drug treatment service for help. As someone with a drug addiction you're entitled to the same confidential NHS care as anyone else who has a health problem.
Heroin is an opiate drug also known as an opioid. Other opioids include codeine, opium and morphine. If you need treatment for addiction to heroin or another opioid you can either see a GP or contact your local drug treatment service. They'll also ask you for a pee sample. This will be tested to confirm that you're using heroin.
You'll be given a key worker who will help you put together a personalised treatment plan. You'll meet them regularly throughout your treatment. Your key worker will help you decide between 2 different approaches to stopping heroin — maintenance therapy or detox:.
Your daily dose of methadone or buprenorphine will be supervised by a drugs worker or pharmacist for up to 3 months.
If you're also addicted to alcohol or other drugs, such as benzodiazapines, you'll be offered support with stopping these as well. Detox lowers your tolerance to heroin. This means your risk of overdosing is higher if you take heroin after detoxing.
Visit rehabonline for more information about rehab. After detox your key worker will carry on supporting you for up to 6 months to help you stay off heroin. This support may include help with issues such as housing or getting back into work or education. last reviewed: 23 March Next review due: 23 March Heroin addiction: get help - Healthy body Secondary Body Bones Food for healthy bones Keep bones healthy over 65 Are you at risk of falling?
