An Expert Group was established by the Department to examine the regulatory framework required to facilitate the availability of buprenorphine / naloxone or buprenorphine-only products as an alternative to methadone for the treatment of opioid dependency. The Group’s recommendations in relation to the future use of such products in Ireland, taking into account a report by Create Consultancy Ltd evaluating a feasibility study on their use in the Irish context, have been forwarded to the HSE with a request that the HSE revert to the Minister for Primary Care with proposals for the Recommendations’ implementation.
