Abstract

WEICH, Lize et al. Medical management of opioid dependence in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2008, vol.98, n.4, pp. 0-0. ISSN 2078-5135.

Medical practitioners in South Africa are increasingly confronted with requests to treat patients with opioid use disorders. Many do not possess the required knowledge and skills to deal with these patients effectively. This overview of the medical treatment of opioid dependence was compiled by an elected working group of doctors working in the field of substance dependence. Recommendations are based on current best practice derived from scientific evidence and consensus of the working group, but should never replace individual clinical judgement.
