Real-life stories of addiction and recovery through pharmacist-led methadone substitution programme

“Fighting the dragon with luck” is a documentary about the life of six people who use an opiate replacement programme for their heroin addiction at a local pharmacy run and owned by Angelo Pricolo.  

Mr Pricolo has 30 years of experience in the treatment of addiction and harm minimisation. He is a former national councillor for the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, and is currently one of the guild’s Victoria branch committee representatives.

In its statement of policy, adopted in 2018, FIP advocates — among other things — for pharmacists to be more involved in the provision of harm reduction services, including opioid substitution therapies and medication-assisted treatment, pharmacist prescribing or dose adjustment under collaborative practice arrangements and pharmacist-administered therapy to enhance adherence. The statement is available here
