Opt out of needles

In the RK, the use of methadone for the treatment of drug addicts will be expanded. During the two-day meeting of the round table, the expert group developed mechanisms for access to MMT treatment for participants. Different situations were considered. Including, if the patient suddenly gets to the hospital and thus independently can not reach the delivery point of the drug. What to do in this situation? Now doctors have to take the patient to the drug addiction clinics, as by the rules he should take the dose only there. The participants of the working group tried to solve similar problems by changing the intradepartmental rules of the interested bodies. At the end of the event, relevant recommendations were developed, which will be sent to the Ministry of Health and Social development for consideration.
