Abstract

For over 40 years Opioid Replacement Therapy (ORT) programs have assisted people with heroin and more recently, with problematic pharmaceutical opioid use such as oxycontin. In 2013, 46,697 Australians were treated with ORT. The uptake of this intervention suggests the benefits of ORT have been recognised.
