A survey of the first year's referral of heroin-addicted adolescents was undertaken exactly two years after the opening of a special treatment unit. Out of 130 patients presenting 78 were selected for treatment and were followed up. The drug-taking pattern of this group is reported. At the time of the survey 27% were assessed as off all addictive drugs.
