  • Opioid Treatment Protocol

    Posted on December 21st, 2010 TimB No comments

    This is the first external review of the Methadone Treatment Protocol in Ireland. It seeks to examine the regulatory process and oversight of methadone and opiate dependence treatment, focusing on both the 1998 protocol and the processes by which treatment is implemented and delivered.

    The review follows the publication, in September 2009, of the government’s National Drugs Strategy 2009-2018. Action 35 in the Strategy requires that a review of the Methadone Treatment Protocol take place to maximise the provision of treatment, to facilitate appropriate progression pathways (including exit from methadone treatment where appropriate) and to encourage engagement with services. The review included engagement with the community and voluntary sectors.
