Heroin addictions significantly impair an individual’s life and come hand-in-hand with many physical, psychological and behavioural symptoms that have devastating consequences. As heroin addictions arise, having someone to talk to can make all the difference.

In addition to our own 24/7 dedicated helpline, several other heroin addiction helplines are on hand to ensure that help, advice, and guidance can be accessed at all times.

Though heroin addiction helplines are frequently contacted by those struggling with addiction, many heroin addiction helplines have been designed and created to ensure that families, friends, and employers concerned about an individual have somewhere to turn for the guidance they may need.
