Heroin addiction is one of the most challenging addictions to overcome. The failure rate is much higher than the recovery success rate. In fact, medicine-assisted treatment is proven to be highly more effective in treating heroin or opiate addiction than alternative treatment methods that do not use medication. Medication Assisted Treatment includes Suboxone, Subutex, Vivitrol, and Methadone. After years of being in and out of institutions, treatment programs, and relapsing, I finally found a treatment that worked for me. The key to my success in recovery was MMT or methadone maintenance treatment.
Not only is there a huge stigma surrounding addiction but, the stigma surrounding methadone maintenance is even worse. Society is cruel enough but, some people in the recovery community also view MMT as a simple replacement for heroin, not a treatment method.
