Proven effective or not, Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) programs face considerable challenges and stigma all over the world. Many treatment providers actively oppose it, and countries like Russia and Uzbekistan go so far as to refuse many harm reduction initiatives and deny lifesaving Methadone treatment to opiate addicts desperately in need of help. The country of Kazakhstan is currently facing their own major dilemmas regarding the controversial Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT), with strong views and opinions being hurled from both sides, and the future of their only MMT program in danger.
