Note last few lines: I am for any scientific, medical approach to treatment, said Albert Y. Zaripov, a former heroin addict who counsels users in Kazan. He began shooting heroin more than a decade ago with a group of 10 friends. Four are in jail, another four remain chained to their addictions, and two died. He alone quit, but after he had contracted H.I.V. If there is another treatment besides substitution therapy, theres no problem, he said. But I havent heard of anything else that has helped or that is more effective. Regards, Rachel
