Opioid Treatment Service

Opioid treatment is for people who are addicted to opioids such as morphine, poppy seed tea, methadone, heroin, oxycodone and codeine. If we agree that we are the service best placed to help, and you decide you would like treatment, we will develop a treatment plan with you. We encourage your family to be involved in your treatment planning; if they understand your treatment they will be in a better position to support you. If we are not the best service for you we will provide you with information about other services that may help you. Here are some examples of what we provide for clients: Our case managers work collaboratively with clients to develop treatment plans. They provide ongoing assessment of substance use and monitor clients' progress to their treatment goals. Our psychiatrists and medical officers provide assessment and treatment for substance dependence and will prescribe you medication if it is the best option.
