Description: 
"So our objective today is to explore the medical, health, social and law enforcement implications of evaluating, in the ACT, new approaches to the treatment of heroin dependent individuals. Drug policy is a highly political issue, any action to change the way we manage drug dependent people in the ACT has political implications for the ACT and for other parts of Australia as well. So I am delighted that we have representatives from drug and law enforcement agencies from most states of Australia here today and that many of the people who will frame attitudes to the proposed ACT trial will have an opportunity to discuss these issues in an open and uninhibited way.at more length later, would involve thoroughly examining the logistic feasibility of the proposed trial. If it was found to be logistically feasible, the third stage would be a small pilot study and only if that was found to work would a trial be conducted." - from Opening Address, Bob Douglas, Director, National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health
