Abstract
Syringe exchange has been suggested as a potential conduit to treatment for drug dependence, but this never has been documented in Europe. The primary aim was to compare the effectiveness of strength-based case management intervention against referral only to facilitate treatment attendance in a syringe exchange programme. We also assessed effectiveness of a syringe exchange programme for referral of heroin-dependent patients to evidence-based treatment with methadone or buprenorphine (buprenorphine-naloxone).
