H.A.T (heroin assisted treatment) , diacetyl-morphine on prescription for addicts who fail on MMT?
Would you participate, if you are or were an addict - in Heroin Assisted Treatment ?
Honestly it would probably take an intervention for most addicts to get to that point. It's hard to say whether I would or not since I'm not an addict.
Well, I agree with You. But, I think, with on-going H.A.T treatments around the World - in several countries including: Switzerland,Germany,Denmark,United Kingdom,Spain,Australia,Canada,and Belgium (currently implementing...) are meant like this....: You have a consortium of doctors, around 5-15 of them ,that will judge by your health records whether you or not applicable for H.A.T ; meeting the requirements. Now, for example, I live in a country where there is no H.A.T nor slow-release morphine as an option. The question is, can my doctor , here in my mother-country prescribe me and give an "certificate paper with signature,stamp and contact" on it where it says that I am diagnosed F11.22, currently on Methadone - BUT I need an better, more effective treatment, with therapy like : "Th: MST Continus 3x200mg or ... Substitol 3x200mg" or diacetyl-morphine shoots x 2 day + right dose of methadone for night..." and, can I go to the coutries with that kind of paper, and ask for medicines ?
