    More therapies for addicts?

    Do you think that beside M.M.T, methadone maintenance treatment, there should be at least ONE MORE opioid available for maintenance like hydromorphone and/or slow-release morphine?

    I am not sure if this qualifies as an answer relevant to your question, but I believe there should be such facilities for people who want to quit smoking cigarettes...

    No. In cases such as methodone clinics, they are just using one drug to substitute another, and the addict is still addicted to drugs.

    @Carole Anzolleti,
    I agree totally with you. There should be more facilities for those who want to quit smoking. But I don't -personally - thing that the Government of either countries want to see tobacco companies out of their country - because of their own interest like taking HUGE taxes from them,and stuff like that.
