Methadone Treatment: available

Foreign methadone patients will be accepted for temporary treatment while staying in the Netherlands. Methadone treatment is available at drug and alcohol agencies (Consultatiebureaus voor Alkohol en Drugs - CADs) and local or regional health centers (Gemeentelijke of Districts Gezondheidsdienst -GGD/DGD). Also, general practitioners are allowed to provide continued methadone treatment. Though not required we advise to contact a dispensing unit or GP before the arrival in the Netherlands. The patient must have a letter from his/her home prescriber clearly stating identification and treatment details. A list of all CADS and GGDs can either be obtained from the Trimbos-instituut or the Ministry of Health (VWS).The Ge´ntegreerde Voorzieningen (Integrated Services)  in Amsterdam will also be of assistance in finding a suitable methadone treatment center in the Netherlands.

Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine: possible

Patients must carry with them a letter from their prescribing clinic or GP stamped/notarized by a Dutch consulate or embassy. Residents from one of the signatory countries of the Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75 must have with them a "Certification to carry drugs and/or psychotropic substances for treatment purposes - Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75" form. This form allows the importation of methadone/buprenorphine supplies sufficient for up to 30 days.
