Recours aux traitements de substitution dans les sorties des addictions

Abstract : The place of opiate substitution treatments in the trajectories of recovering people are explored in this article, using the results of a survey questioning different aspects of their lives. A total of 341 persons were met in addiction treatment centers and self-help groups. We focused on those (n=203) who were prescribed a daily treatment of methadone or high-dose buprenorphine in their lives. Four groups were identified according to their pathways of recovery: those who were abstinent, those still in treatment, those who shifted to another product (illicit drug or alcohol) and those who were still dependent. The analysis of their characteristics, feelings about their recoveries and their personal definitions of what recovery is, shows ambivalent conceptions of the role of OST in the recovering process.
