Excerpt
This report examines the content and structure of methadone treatment programmes in six countries. As such, it forms part of a continuing line of work within Mots programme on the prevention and control of alcohol and drug abuse. Over recent years, WHO has devoted considerable attention to activities related to the treatment of drug dependence. These activities have included an analysis of the nature and effectiveness of treatment policies, a review of legislation relating to the treatment of drug- and alcohol-dependent persons, the development of training materials for medical and other health personnel, and the preparation of guidelines for assessing the quality of care in drug abuse treatment services.
