While most of us endure a life in the half-way quarantine, live many with rusrelaterte problems a life of desperation. Now must doctors three in character and ensure that the most vulnerable among us can make it through those extraordinary times. Therefore, it is the Norwegian association for general medicine has recommended that primary care physicians write out morfintabletter to the heroin that otherwise operate in the black rusmarkedene. At the same time driver Helsetilsynet-paced chase on the doctors that have helped people away from the open rusmiljøene.Columnist Nicolay Borchgrevink Johansen

Skyggeutvalget have the last time been contacted by a good number of people with large consumption of medications in everyday life. Most live an orderly existence, often for the first time in his life. Their lives are turned upside down, but not by coronaviruset. They have been thrown out the existence of Helsetilsynet. Helsetilsynet has in fact taken the right to prescribe morphine and other strong drugs ("the a - and b-preparations") from a local doctor.
I have been allowed to tell what this has done with the life of one of this physician's patients.
"Stone" is in the 60-years and have used amphetamines at least 45 years. He was medicated as a child and have had a large consumption of amphetamines and similar drugs in the entire voksentilværelsen, including heroin. He has held a variety of jobs, both in the underworld and the ordinary labour market, but all the time while he has medicated himself with injections ("shots"). Journey to the Stone ended on the streets, and he has managed to be both known and feared person in the rusmiljøet in the city he lives. Stone can be oppfarende and ports just as it is in conflict. He has several judgments of violence.
Until recently lived Stone an ordered life more organized than ever before. He has been given medication by his doctor, who makes sure he doesn't need to act in rusmiljøet. There are many medications, both such as substitutes for amphetamine, nervetabletter and heroin. He has an apartment and stable access to a set of medications that both regulates his boisterous sjelsliv and keeps the withdrawal symptoms appear in chess. Everybody is happy: he has it better and rusmiljøet is a hissigpropp poorer. Now Helsetilsynet found out that the drugs are "unsustainable" and thus, Stein has lost access to the medicines of the night.
I have talked with the Stone several times, and he is becoming more and more desperate. He pleads and prays, if in any case a little too amfetaminavhengigheten. "Just something to take the tops of the withdrawal symptoms appear!" He is scared and in pain. He is exhausted and will give up. The doctor's office saying he needs to get a new doctor. But how will the Stone to build up a relationship with a primary care doctor on short notice, with their special and difficult situation? Have Helsetilsynet provided that the medication they think is "unsustainable", accelerated down gradually, or that it is a safety net for the Stone? No, it's the sudden stop. What will Stone do? I have tried to help to find out what kind of measures that exist for him. But it to print amfetaminerstatning is not allowed or available anywhere else than in the black rusmarkedet. And the other "lavterskeltilbudene" required the submission in a system which is not realistic for Stone.
Enhanced the state of emergency is the situation more and more hopeless for the Stone. He has got doctor's appointment with new family doctor in the middle of may. He fears medisintilgangen now in the easter season, and do not understand what is happening. "Desperate times require desperate means", I know.
No one knows what the Stone takes on the now. A abstinent, angry, and unruly soul is looking after the adequate medication. I can't offer other than to suggest the city's accessibility. Where is there a short way to the black rusmarkedet.
Skyggeutvalget have would like to remind you that many of rusrelaterte problems live extraordinary lives each day, and that fastlegene may be those who see the individual patient's needs the best. In this case, it is a doctor who helps a person with solid gained experience with medication on amphetamines and a whole range of tilleggspreparater. Helsetilsynet on the other hand, have found out that forskrivingen does not fit with the forhåndsskrevne templates, as if all patients were alike, and thus ripped the rug away under the feet of the Stone.
Stone is, however, only one of many which now is on good ground. Most of the people we have talked with, do a little better than Stone. But some are already back in rusmiljøene, and all is set in a much harder situation than before. More are in danger of losing bopelen his, and housing is often an important protection against relapse. Patients do not know what kind of rights they have and are been kasteballer from a variety of agencies that would rather not have anything to do with them. Skyggeutvalget in collaboration with not-for-profit health care provider prepared a couple of task lists for meetings with primary care physicians, but this is so far too small up against a reluctant helsesystem.
Skyggeutvalget want to remind you that the government is working with a rusreform under the slogan "from punishment to help."Calm down. Rusreformen bust don't Debate
