Prisoners in Scotland to receive monthly depot buprenorphine

The Scottish government has announced that prisoners who are prescribed methadone will now move from daily methadone consumption to a weekly or monthly depot buprenorphine injection. The move is intended to enable greater levels of social distancing in prisons and therefore to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Naloxone distribution will also be expanded in Scottish prisons.
