"Maintaining the Status Quo”?

The report, “Maintaining the Status Quo”?  The Experiences of Long-term Participants in Methadone Mainternance Treatment, by Paula Mayock, Shane Butler and Daniel Hoey, was launched December 10th in Dun Laoghaire County Hall. It was a very well attended event, got good publicity and the book is now available online. Congratulations to all involved: the research team, my colleagues in the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Drug and Alcohol Task Force, Southside Partnership and the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Community Addiction Team. I believe the report will have significant impact on methadone treatment policy and practice. See the following link for further information: Launch of report:
