PIVOT fighting for right to use heroin-assisted treatment
The PIVOT legal society is fighting today to overturn a federal decision making it illegal for patients in life or death situations to have access to heroin-assisted treatment.
It wants its clients to continue to access the treatment as part of the SALOME study.
“Ideology should not be a ruling policy in this case; we need to be looking to what’s in the best interests of our clients’ health and the best interests of society,” says Douglas King with PIVOT.
