Abstract
Since the Belgian Federal Drug policy note in 2001, a legal framework has been developed for the prescription and administration of opioid substitution treatment (OST). However, until today policymakers and fieldworkers point at various gaps in the knowledge on substitution treatment in Belgium, in particular regarding substitution treatment in settings outside specialized centres, on the characteristics of clients receiving substitution therapy and on challenges and obstacles in the provision of this type of treatment. This research tries to answer these questions by providing an extensive and up-to-date overview of key elements of substitution treatment in Belgium. How is the provision of OST organized in Belgium (availability, types of providers, spread, referral and psychosocial support)? How do the clients receiving OST experience substitution treatment? Which obstacles can be identified and which recommendations can be made to overcome these obstacles? The answers to these questions can be found in this book.
