Heroin-assisted treatment

The government has decided to implement a pilot project with heroin-assisted treatment (HAB) as part of drug-assisted rehabilitation (LAR). The pilot project has a duration of 5 years, starting in 2021 in Oslo and Bergen. The aim of the clinical trial project is to expand LAR to include medical heroin (diacetylmorphine) in either injectable or oral (tablet) form that may make it possible to treat individuals where the standard course of LAR has not led to satisfactory results.

RusForsk will lead the work in the sub-studies related to the following thematic areas:

  • Attitudes and experiences of HAB among patients, relatives and employees
  • Process evaluation of implementation of the treatment program HAB
