Heroin dependence is a chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive heroin use in spite of harmful consequences. The aim of Eline Zaaijer’s research is to assess both protective and risk factors for heroin use and the development of heroin dependence, with an emphasis on personality as one of the most important factors. This knowledge is important for a better understanding of the addiction process and for the planning of future prevention strategies that may need to be tailored to specific personality factors.
