Is this essential to change blood if a person is heroin addicted and is trying to get rid of this addiction?

Detoxification Needed

Dear Anna,

A person entering treatment for heroin addiction may first need detoxification to rid the system of the heroin. A blood transfusion is not needed in that case. If a person has other complications from his/her drug use, other medical procedures might be deemed necessary.

After the heroin is no longer in the system then other forms of treatment are used such as group therapy and individual therapy. These treatments can use cognitive-behavioural therapy to help the patient LEARN how to stop using.

Heroin is addiction cause by changes in brain chemistry, it is not a disease of the blood.
