Cambodia to Introduce Methadone:

Not so sure if this is good news or bad. Basically, if the "pilot" is successful, the "glass" of drug treatment availability will remain 95% empty in Cambodia (target 100 patients, estimated "at least 2,000 drug users in P.P." Far more worrying: the staffing of this pilot that seeks to enroll 100 patients is stated to be: "more than 20 doctors, pharmacists, nurses, case managers and counselors." If wildly successful, it will have demonstrated efficacy of a model that will be totally impossible to replicate other than on a tiny, tiny scale. It might well prove to be by far the most insurmountable of all obstacles facing meaningful availability of methadone treatment in Cambodia - and beyond. Full story (dated 1 March):

I don't think they will manage to do this.

Methadone clinics are not the answer. Once someone is hooked the clinic has a customer for life. We hear the tragic stories from people trapped on Methadone everyday at Novus Medical Detox Center.
