L. Sakoman (Zagreb, Croatia): The experience with methadone maintenance programmes in Croatia (pp. 38-49)

“The first specialized treatment program for drug addicts exists in Zagreb since 1970. Heroin abuse has been followed-up in Croatia since the beginning of the eighties. The war (1991), post-war period and transition caused, within a short time, a large increase in drug supply and demand, what also caused an epidemic of heroin addiction.”

“At any moment, about 600 addicts are in some of the therapeutic communities while 500 of them are in prisons. About 45 heroin addicts die of overdosing annually.”

“Presently, 15 outpatient Addict Treatment Centres exist in the country. They have employed interdisciplinary teams (medical practitioner, most often psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, medical nurse). Besides the or alongside the therapeutic work, their duty is to coordinate all the activities, at their domain, connected with the drug demand reduction programs. Their most important duty, though, is to take care of the addicts and connect all the systems, discovering them and participating in their treatment. Among those systems, the most important are general practitioners, psychiatric detoxification programs and therapeutic communities.”
