Opioide Substitution Treatment (OST) in Europe – The Users View

The Data of the European Drug Report show that the potentials of substitution treatment are not used sufficiently. For example,we have a very low  prevalence of treated opioid users as well as a limited number of prescribed Medications in Europe. With a few exceptions, many substances, who have already  shown  good effects and results in substitution teatment are not offered or only offered for a very small group of patients. There may be the impression that in many countries are particular reservations or prejudices about the use of some OST medications, such as levomethadone, morphine, diamorphine, etc. We can see that people who use opioids are influenced in choosing their medications.
