Methadone: Take-Safe device
The Take-Safe device is a hardened plastic container with a microprocessor which can only be locked or unlocked by the dispensing pharmacist, and is designed to deliver a single take-away dose of methadone every 24 hours for up to six days. The Take-Safe trial aimed to see if this device helped to make the use of methadone safer, by reducing the risk of it being misused or diverted to other users.
User’s News will keep you posted about the developments that we hope will bring Take-Safe back into use as soon as possible.
