Title: Supervised injectable heroin or injectable methadone versus optimised oral methadone as treatment for chronic heroin addicts in England after persistent failure in orthodox treatment (RIOTT): a randomised trial
Summary: The intervention aimed to significantly reduce the use of street heroin amongst individuals who were chronically addicted to heroin and who had not previously responded to conventional treatment. Suitable patients were enrolled and were randomly allocated to 26 weeks of treatment with supervised injectable heroin, supervised injectable methadone or optimised oral methadone within an open-label randomised controlled trial. The intervention took place in supervised injecting clinics in three locations in England. Weekly urinalysis was used to monitor whether participants were continuing to use street heroin in addition to their prescribed treatment. The trial showed that significantly more of those participants who were treated with injectable heroin, compared to those on oral methadone, had achieved weekly urine samples showing no use of street heroin during 50% or more of the weeks 14 to 26 of treatment. There was no significant difference between those on injectable methadone treatment and those on oral methadone. The authors of the study recommended that injectable medicinal heroin should be more widely available under supervision to chronic heroin addicts who were not benefiting from conventional treatments. >>
