Methadone Treatment: available

Methadone treatment is available for foreign patients at one hospital in Skopje, provided they carry with them a valid medical certificate from their home prescriber. However, we strongly advise to contact the project manager of the methadone program, Dr. Tulevski, some two weeks before the expected date of arrival in Skopje. Treatment fees vary depending on dosage and possible checkups.

Importation of Methadone: possible

There are no laid down regulations regarding the importation of methadone for personal use, but we would recommend patients to carry with them a notarized letter from their clinic or GP stating identification details, the quantity of methadone, and the dates of arrival in and departure from Macedonia.
