The devastating effects of the Russian 'ban on methadone' are being felt in Crimea, with as many as 20 former Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) patients having died since it's implementation.
According to a report from Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), not only have up to 20 former patients died, countless others are suffering from untreated diseases such as HIV/AIDs and Hepatitis, while others still are trying to flee the area in a desperate bid to find the life saving treatment elsewhere.
