Heroin Addiction and Related Clinical Problems: 1999, 01, 2 (pages: 39 - 42)

General Practitioners and Heroin Addiction. Chronicle of a Medical Practice

Michelazzi A., Vecchiet F., Cimolino T.

Summary: In the summer of 1994, family doctors in Trieste (Italy) began to treat patients who had opiate drug-addiction problems by giving them methadone substitute therapy within therapeutic programmes decided in surgeries. The drug-addict became just a patient once again, often a chronic patient who could be treated in the family doctor's surgery. More than 50 doctors now prescribe substitute medicine in their surgeries, in Trieste.
