Methadone/Buprenorphine Treatment: available

Methadone treatment is available from GPs and some clinics. The traveller's home prescriber should contact a colleague in Belgium some days in advance of the expected date of arrival.

Travellers must have with them a letter from their prescribing doctor stating identification details and giving information on the total quantity of methadone/buprenorphine and the dates of arrival in and departure from Belgium.
