New heroin-assisted treatment — recent evidence and current practices of supervised injectable heroin treatment in Europe and beyond
This EMCDDA Insights guides the reader through the concepts and the operational aspects of providing supervised heroin treatment and presents the reader with an overview of the research findings from the series of randomised clinical trials and associated analyses. With this publication to hand, we can now contribute more constructively to the clinical, public and political discussions that are required to establish the proper place of this new form of treatment in the wider provision of care to those with heroin addiction problems.
