TI - Propoxyphene napsylate maintenance treatment of narcotic dependence: use of a non-methadone model

AB - AB - One hundred seventy-eight (178) heroin addicts entered propoxyphene napsylate (PN)

maintenance. Patients attended a general medical clinic two times each week and took home a three-to four-

day supply of PN which was usually taken in doses of 300 to 400 mg three to four times per day. Over a 21-

month period, the subjects entered and re- entered PN treatment 166 times (1.5 times per patient) and

remained a mean of 10.6 weeks per treatment. A comparison with a group of methadone maintenance

patients indicated similar performance in employment and heroin use. The ability to take PN, attend a clinic

less often than daily, and discontinue and re-enter treatment on a discretionary basis is preferred treatment

approach for some narcotic addicts UI - 83012906
