The aim of this guide is:
- to provide frontline workers with accurate information about the treatment options available for heroin and other opioid dependence, to pass on to users and their families, carers and friends.
Two information booklets, one for heroin dependent people, and one for their
families and carers have also been produced as a part of this work, entitled:
- Treatment Options for Heroin and Other Opioid Dependence - A Guide for Users, and
- Treatment Options for Heroin and Other Opioid Dependence - A Guide for Families and Carers
