Attention to metabolic energy disturbance is needed to treat relapse of heroin
Drug dependence is a major public health crisis. The main goal of treating substance dependence is to prevent relapse. In clinical practice, the risk of relapse remains high even after completion of treatment and prolonged abstinence. Our study published in BMC Neuroscience aims to understand the vulnerability to relapse as it is crucial for the development of an effective treatment for drug addiction.
