Methadone/Buprenorphine Treatment: available
If a foreign traveller seeks methadone/buprenorphine
treatment in Liechtenstein his/her home prescriber must contact
the chief medical officer of the Health Department, Dr. O.
Ospelt, some two weeks in advance of the expected journey to
arrange treatment and dispensing modalities.
Importation of Methadone and Other Opioid Substances: possible
Although it is not a legal requirement we
advise travellers bringing methadone or other opioid substances into Liechtenstein for
personal use as medication to carry with them a document from
their prescribing medical practitioner which clearly supports
their need for the medication, details the patients'
identification data and states the name, form, strength and
dosage of the medication.
