Although opioid substitution treatment (OST) is the most effective intervention for heroin use and dependence, the medication itself, and accompanying psychosocial/recovery interventions, need to be optimised to give the user the best chance of recovery and sustained abstinence.

This briefing focuses on elements that can be optimised and provides key messages to help achieve this. The content is drawn from authoritative guidance, published evidence and service provider feedback.
