These clinical practice guidelines aim to provide health care workers, particularly prescribers of opioid treatments, with the most up-to-date knowledge and current level of best practice for the treatment of withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs. This includes heroin and other opioids, benzodiazepines, cannabis, and psychostimulants.
