Euro-Methwork was an informal network, founded in 1994 by a group of European experts who were concerned about the slow introduction of methadone treatment in many European countries. Over the years, numerous activities were employed financed through various sources. On this website some of the outcomes of the network can be found.
Euro-Methwork is no longer active.
The mission of Euro-Methwork is to improve the quality of pharmacotherapy in addiction treatment (often referred to as substitution treatment) and ameliorate the accessibility for all those who need this kind of treatment. Important tools to accomplish this mission are the provision of information through publications and our website and to provide training and advocacy.
