Out-patient Methadone Treatment Programme


The out-patient methadone treatment programme, operated by the Department of Health, provides both methadone maintenance and methadone detoxification programmes. By blocking their craving for opiate drugs, methadone helps to reduce illicit self-administration of such drugs by opiate abusers. Patients may choose to be maintained on methadone if they are unable to attain total abstinence, or to be detoxified through gradual reduction in the methadone consumed.
