Citywide submits to Review of the Methadone Treatment Protocol

15 Jul 2010

Citywide held a meeting in June of community services and projects to develop a submission to the Review of the Methadone Treatment Protocol. Underpinning all of the recommendations proposed at that meeting was the need for effective engagement between methadone prescribing services and community services. Community services are clear that methadone has been a very useful element of drug treatment in Ireland but equally clear that it is not a treatment in itself. Methadone should be used as part of an overall care plan for drug users; this intervention should include all other elements required for progression in recovery.
