Opioid Treatment and Naloxone

Treatment for Opioid Dependency

Help is available for you and your family if you are a youth or adult and have concerns related to opioid use. The Opioid Dependency Treatment Hubs offer a variety of services aimed at a holistic approach to client care.

 

Services offered include opioid agonist therapy (OAT) which involves taking medications such as, Suboxone, Methadone or Sublocade. These medications reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, without causing an individual to become impaired. Individuals can also avail of addictions counselling services and Take-Home Naloxone training.
