Caption: Drug dispensing technology. Advanced dispensing system (ADS) device in its charging cradle. This device has been designed for the secure, monitored and remote treatment of heroin addiction. The main device is based on mobile telephone technology and allows the monitoring and control of the addict's use of a prescribed course of methadone, a drug to treat heroin addiction. Other drugs can also be used with this system. The drugs are delivered as a powder by inhaler technology using a specially designed cartridge (blue/orange). Advantages of the system include the ability to monitor and vary the dosages and prevent overdoses. Developed by GW Pharmaceuticals. Photographed in 2002.
