How Heroin Addiction Detox Programs Work.
A variety of rehab programs are effective for various reasons.

Usually some medication for sleep and anxiety will also be dispensed. A person detoxing from heroin will be medically supervised and they will also receive individual therapy which continues in drug rehab after discharge.
