From CBC Prince Edward Island:
Methadone program on the way: Gillan
P.E.I.'s health minister said convincing some addictions workers that methadone can help people kick their drug habit has slowed a provincial methadone program.

Chester Gillan said the province believes methadone can help people who are addicted to narcotics. He said some people who work with addicts didn't think giving drugs to people with an addiction was the right way to go.

However, a review of how methadone has been working so far has shown it can help. Currently the Island is the only Canadian province without a methadone program.
