What Are the Drugs Used for Addiction Treatment?

Question by blair a: What are the drugs used for addiction treatment?
I am especially interested in those that are used to counter heroin addiction. I do know about methadone, but aside from that, what other drugs are used?

Answer by colleen_li
The other kinds of medications used for the treatment of heroin addiction are: naltrexone, naloxone (used in cases of overdose), and buprenorphine, among others. Buprenorphine is fairly new, but it seems to be an appealing alternative to methadone since the effect of just a single injection can last for up to 6 weeks. Keep in mind, though, that medications alone won’t be enough treatment for heroin addicts. They also need therapy, counseling, and even rehabilitation.

What Help Is Available Within England for Heroin Addiction?

Question by Maverick: What help is available within England for Heroin Addiction?
A family member of mine has a Heroin addiction. I have no idea how I can go about helping them, but having already lost one member to the drug, I do not wish to see another lose their life to it, especially one I’m so close to.

I’ve done some searching, but haven’t really found much information. It seems the only real help available has to be paid for and the prices are extortionate at best.

I don’t have much money myself, and neither does the person I wish to help.
