CMHA Peel Dufferin opens Rapid Access Addiction Medicine Clinic (RAAM Clinic)


CMHA Peel Dufferin and the Central West LHIN are committed to improving the mental health of residents by building a strong continuum of high quality, coordinated and efficient mental health and addictions services.

In response to the growing opioid crisis and the need for increased supports for those with addictions, CMHA Peel Dufferin has established a Rapid Access Addiction Medicine Clinic to provide immediate access to lifesaving treatment by offering same-day counselling and addiction medication. This clinic model has been shown to help save lives by engaging people with short- and long-term treatments as soon as they are ready and interested.

CMHA Peel Dufferin’s Rapid Access Addiction Medicine Clinic is the first clinic of it’s kind in the Central West region, and accepts all patients, including self-referrals and walk-ins, in addition to referrals from family doctors, hospitals and emergency departments, and the community.

CMHA Peel Dufferin’s RAAM Clinic is Nurse Practitioner led, with three components:

  1. Rapid Access Addiction Medicine Clinic
  2. Substance Use Intervention and Treatment Clinic
  3. Knowledge Exchange and Support

The Rapid Access Addiction Medicine Clinic works in collaboration with primary care, the emergency departments (William Osler Brampton & Etobicoke sites), shelters and other health service providers and first responders in supporting clients with addictions issues.

Nurse Practitioners lead a multi-disciplinary team to assess, diagnose, treat and monitor clients who use substances.  There is an emphasis on non-judgmental interactions, which include health promotion and education to clients, community providers, and primary care in an effort to prevent overdoses.
