Maudsley guidelines talks about detoxification/relapse prevention or maintainence treatments.

Maintainence/substitue prescribing- Methadone or Buprenorphine

Detoxification using-Methadone , Buprenorphine,Lofexidine

Relapse prevention following detoxification-Neltrexone ,but evidence is inconclusive for use of neltrexone.

I am not sure about the question
