Cold Turkey Is Not The Answer: The Two-Prong Attack On Heroin Addiction
Heroin is a very serious drug and it requires a two-prong attack if you are looking to quit the drug. Unlike people who smoke cigarettes, cold turkey is not a wise approach. This is because the physical withdrawals to heroin are very serious. Secondly, there is often a very serious cognitive and lifestyle problem with those who have become addicted to heroin. Unlike cigarettes, many heroin addicts have fallen outside of normal functioning life and need counseling and guidance on how to reenter mainstream society and think clearly.
