Argentina

Methadone Treatment: available in Buenos Aires

There are no methadone treatment programmes in Argentina. However, doctors are allowed to prescribe methadone. It is important that the patients' home prescribers contact INTERCAMBIOS Asociatión Civil in Buenos Aires (see contact details below) at least two to three weeks before a patient's intended travel, because the Argentine doctor has to get a special prescription form and the methadone has then to be ordered from a pharmaceutical laboratory.

Importation of Methadone: prohibited
