Provides first-line treatments like suboxone or methadone in a supervised clinical setting, along with connections to other health care services and community supports.

Opioid agonist treatment is a first-line treatment that uses prescribed medications like suboxone or methadone in a supervised clinical setting to treat people who have opioid use disorder. Opioid use disorder is a medical condition characterized by a problematic pattern of opioid use (e.g. addiction to pain killers such as Percocet, OxyContin, heroin). By providing opioid agonist treatment, we can reduce the possibility of people overdosing or dying from opioid use and improve the health and well-being clients and their families.

Clients can also access psycho-social services like counselling and residential treatment, and get connected to regular medical care and other supports, like employment services and stable housing.
