Can you tell me how to quit my heroin addiction?

Several options: Heroin addiction is serious. Inpatient or residential detoxification is indicated. Following detoxification there are several options for continued treatment, including substance abuse counseling, longer term inpatient substance abuse treatment, and outpatient medication assisted treatment with Methadone at an approved clinic or Suboxone through an approved physician's office.
