Asked: 2018-04-13 20:52:32
I have been a heroin addict for six years. It’s been a time of massive highs and lows and I honestly feel like I am at deaths door and the odds are just stacked. I’m going to come off it but want to know some things, like how many addicts really recover?

Addicts recover and some relapse, it’s just a fact of life. Estimates vary wildly about recovery rates, from 20% - 60%, so it’s hard to know.

Heroin addicts dont ever fully recover. We just continue to fight a lifetime battle of staying sober.Even though i know drugs are not good for me or my life. I will always crave them. The key is learning to find distractions so you dont use.

says that going into a residential heroin treatment was one of the most likely ways to result in higher rates of continued recovery from heroin addiction. As you may not know not all residential programs are the same. A combination of medically supported treatments and various types of therapy make up the approach most likely to result in the outcome and long term maintenance of recovery. But finding where you are most comfortable can be a hard task. You should look for a residential treatment place that suits your needs for your best chance of recovery.

Recovery from heroin will last a lifetime. A good outcome depends mostly adequate treatment. Heroin addiction is a chronic disease which requires continuous monitoring and care. Behavioral therapies like the ones stated Behavioral therapies help people modify their attitudes related to drug use.

I think its only like 40 percent of heroin addicts recover, but its better than nothing. I think it could be a bit stronger, maybe some more research is needed to help study why the success rates are so low.
