Thoughts on Songs with The Only Ones

First heard this song in my early teens, always thought it was just a really great love song. Recently heard a dj claim that it is about the singer's heroin addiction, and suddenly realized it makes a lot of sense. You get under my skin, in my blood, I don't need rehabilitating, it all lines up pretty good. Still love the song tho.
