Did you know that methadone take away doses are currently being reviewed in Victoria

The Victorian Coroners are suggesting that Victoria adopt the Tasmanian methadone take away dose policy which is a maximum of two, non consecutive take away doses per week.  This will have a significant impact upon people's quality of life.  It will also impact upon employers, the families and partners of people who rely upon a methadone treatment program.

Methadone is one of the best evidenced tools for reducing opioid related deaths and it's continued accessibility is vital to ensuring the health and safety of opioid dependent people and the general community.
