Germany. Information on opioid substitution and Sars-CoV-2/Covid-19 - Advice for physicians

The coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 has reached the first substitution practices and outpatient clinics in Germany. It is now a matter of a pragmatic balancing between securing the supply and ensuring the protection against infection while taking into account the control  of narcotics.

In comparison with other treatment centres and practices, there are hardly any alternative distribution points and treatment centres available when substitution practices are closed.  Therefore changes in the distribution and prescription practice are recommended.
