Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic
Availability of substitution treatment in the Czech Republic has increased. New specialised facilities have been opened gradually and since the year 2006, substitution treatment is also available in prisons. The number of patients has also increased. This update brings data not only about the number of patients according to age, region, substitution substance and about selected health status indicators. But it informs also about the facilities, which provide substitution treatment, about news and planned changes in the system of substitution treatment in the Czech Republic.
