Methadone/Buprenorphine Treatment: available

Since 1996 general practitioners are no longer allowed to prescribe methadone to drug users. Methadone treatment must be provided by clinics run by the Danish counties. The county methadone clinics are prepared to accept foreign patients for temporary treatment. Patients needing continued methadone/buprenorphine treatment in Denmark are advised to ask their home prescribers to contact one of the county social and health care authorities in Denmark or the Health Services Department at the Ministry of Health (Mr. Mogens Jørgensen or Mr. Steen Hartvig Hansen). Another useful contact is the Danish Drug User Union ("BrugerForeningen").

Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine: possible

It is allowed to bring a 30 days' supply of methadone/buprenorphine into Denmark. Travellers must carry with them a letter from their home prescriber which clearly supports their need for the medication. It should be noted that residents from one of the EU signatory countries of the "Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75" must carry with them a "Certification to carry drugs and/or other psychotropic substances for treatment purposes - Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75" form when travelling to Denmark, provided such forms are available in the corresponding countries.
