PDF File Size: 999 KB | Download   
In South Asia, opioid use, and in particular heroin use, is on the increase. The diffusion of injecting drug use is causing concern in the region (UNODC & MSJE, 2004). Heroin and other opioid dependence cause significant morbidity and mortality; it is a chronic and enduring condition that often requires longterm treatment and care. Adequate access to a range of treatment options should be offered to respond to the varying needs of people with heroin/opioid dependence.
Aim:
1. To outline the safety and effectiveness of buprenorphine in the management of heroin and other opioid dependence.
2. To describe the guidelines and procedures for opioid substitution treatment (OST) with
buprenorphine.
3. To discuss issues relating to buprenorphine administration and a rollout plan for bu-prenorphine substitution clinics.
4. To understand the quality assurance indicators in the operation of the buprenorphine clinics.
