The Health Service Executive (HSE) has asked Prof Joe Barry, Professor of Population Health Medicine at TCD, to work with Prof Michael Farrell, Professor of Addiction Psychiatry and Director of Postgraduate Medical Education in the Institute of Psychiatry London, on a review of the current methadone treatment protocol.

The National Drugs Strategy requires that this review take place to “maximise the provision of treatment, to facilitate appropriate progression pathways (including exit from methadone treatment where appropriate) and to encourage engagement with services.”
