Tell Us a Story About a Patient with a Heroin Addiction and How You Helped
The patient, Ed was a college educated heroin user. At 28 years old he was married and had one 3 year old. Ed was a high earner when working in his job as a sales manager. Although he thought he was a very functional heroin addict, he often missed work and was constantly changing jobs.
Ed had tried three rehab programs and each time he did stop using drugs but relapsed in each case within four months. Ed’s addiction to heroin was affecting his family life, spending no quality time with his wife or child. Nevertheless, His wife was a very positive influence on him. I think the main reason he agreed to seek my services was to help save his marriage.
