IMPORTANT: What Are the Most Effective Ways of Overcoming Heroin Addiction?

Question by Devilishly Sexy MasterMinD: IMPORTANT: What are the most effective ways of overcoming heroin addiction?
And if anyone happens to be an ex-heroin addict, PLEASE contact me asap.

I have a close friend of mine who’s almost gone insane because of heroin addiction. His family is now considering sending him to Singapore, a supposedly drug-free nation, to keep him off heroin. Is that a good idea?

Answer by iain
No! “sending him to Singapore” is certainly NOT a good or responsible thing to do!

You need to get professional help. If you are in the UK, call the National Drugs Helpline on 0800 77 66 00. There is tons of professional help he can get, including counselling, rehab, and Methadone prescriptions to help get him off the Heroin. This is all free in the UK, but if you are not in the UK there will probably be some similar equivalent in your own country.
