The guidelines have been prepared by practitioners with expertise in the use of methadone to treat opioid dependence. They are intended to assist medical practitioners and dispensers to treat opioid-dependent patients in a safe and effective manner. The guidelines are general recommendations and are provided for information purposes only. The guidelines cannot provide detailed direction in respect to the management of every patient in every clinical situation, and do not constitute specific treatment advice. Individual medical practitioners and dispensers are responsible for decisions about the safety and effectiveness of treatment used for each patient. The guidelines are not intended to replace professional judgment in individual cases.
