Austria

Methadone/Buprenorphine Treatment: available

The patient's home clinic or GP should contact the drug coordinator ("Drogenkoordinator") of the state his/her patient intends to visit in Austria. The drug coordinators will be of assistance in finding an appropriate local methadone/buprenorphine prescriber. We advise to provide notice at least two weeks in advance of the expected date of the patient's arrival. On arrival the patient must have a letter from his home prescriber clearly stating identification and treatment details.

Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine: possible

Travellers are strongly advised to have with them a letter from their home prescriber (attested by a local health authority!) detailing the patient's personal data and clearly stating that the quantity of methadone/buprenorphine imported has been prescribed for personal use. It is important to stress, that residents from one of the EU signatory countries of the Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75  should carry with them a "Certification to carry drugs and/or psychotropic substances for treatment purposes - Schengen Implementing Convention, Artikel 75" form when travelling to Austria.
