  5. What percentage of heroin addicts relapse?

My girl has come off heroin before but she’s relapsed again, it’s a vicious circle for us both but I know it’s worse for her. How many addicts relapse?

National figures say that around 80% of heroin addicts relapse, but that doesn’t mean they can’t get right again. Keep trying man.

The numbers can be hard to track, some people say that 40% of people relapse, some say 60%. It’s probably somewhere in between. You’re giving her good support, and hopefully she’ll get there.
