Kieran Nichol died after being given methadone
Kieran Nichol, 20, from Hawick, died at Castle Craig residential hospital after being given methadone - despite the fact he was not a heroin addict.
A spokesman for the West Linton clinic refused to comment on reports that staff had been suspended - and doctors banned from prescribing the drug.
A statement said the hospital could not comment on the treatment or medical conditions of patients.
