The author discusses the use of methadone maintenance treatment as a method for treating opiate dependence in Ireland, and the rise of the opiate epidemic in Ireland in the 1980s. The introduction of a methadone protocol regularised the prescription and dispensing of methadone, and it is estimated that almost 6,500 individuals in Ireland, the majority of whom live in Dublin, are on methadone maintenance.
