I always keep an eye in the news for addiction studies, articles and generally any new information about recovering. I read a lot so I can share with you the most important news  because I think America as a whole reached a new level of awareness about heroin and addiction in 2016.

The ones I’ve listed below were some of the most interesting information on addiction and treatment I found in 2016. I believe you’ll find them highly informative and helpful. Try to read each with an open mind and try to view each objectively without too much emotion. And I encourage you to examine what the articles mean to you on a personal level. Remember, recovery from drug and heroin addiction is about learning and understanding a new and better way to live each and every day.
