Examined the effectiveness of implosive therapy with heroin addicts during detoxification from methadone. 24 Ss with comparable histories of heroin addicition and similar maintenance levels of methadone were assigned to an implosive therapy, eclectic counseling, or control group. The 2 treatment groups received 12 sessions of implosive therapy or eclectic counseling and were followed for a subsequent 6-wk period. The implosive therapy Ss were the only ones to reduce significantly their methadone level during treatment and the follow-up period.
