Other scientific magazines deal with drug-related issues from a variety of viewpoints. Nevertheless, none is selectively dedicated to heroin addiction except Heroin Addiction and Related Clinical Problems. So, key concepts about addiction diagnosis and treatment coming from the field of opiate research fail to be highlighted out of an opiate-centered perspective. For instance, research about addiction to other substances (alcohol and nicotine included) does often miss to treat treatment-related subjects in a long-term perspective, studies about short-term interventions prevailing more that it happens in the field of opiate addiction research. Key issues about stigma and false beliefs about the nature of addiction and the principles of anticraving treatment are often discussed when it is the case of opiate, while they are often neglected when it is the case of other substances, although those problems share the same psychopathological backgrounds and treatment needs.
Up to date, Heroin Addiction and Related Clinical Problems has tried to inform about opiate addiction research and bridge it to related medical and non-medical skills, though maintaining two principles: the medical-centered vision of addictive diseases, and a multicultural approach welcoming contributions from countries with different histories and traditions of addiction epidemics and treatment. Thereby, readers can have a comparative view of the same theoretical solutions challenged with different cultural contexts and health politics.
