Heroin addiction is particularly difficult to recover from, as it’s been shown to have a high rate of relapse. Factors that contribute to heroin addiction relapse include:
- Having a spouse or partner who also uses heroin
- Lacking a social support network of friends and family who do not use drugs
- Mental illness
- Lack of healthy coping skills
That doesn’t mean there’s no hope. A study recently published in the journal Addiction shows that the chances of successful long-term recovery for heroin and opiate addicts increases when they’re placed in sober living arrangements after their initial residential treatment programs have finished. Self-efficacy, or the ability to care for oneself, has been named, along with mental health, as one of the biggest factors in heroin addiction recovery.
What Is Sober Living?
Sober living is a treatment strategy that places recovering addicts in a group living situation. The environment is substance-free, and the addicts provide recovery support for one another. Sober living can help meet the need for housing, a common need among heroin users.
