Opioid Treatment Programs

Overview

Our Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) provides opioid replacement therapy for people who are dependent on opioids such as heroin, morphine and oxycodone. It gives people the chance to stop their illicit or problematic use of opioids and reduce the harms that come about from such use. They can then focus on improving their health and lifestyle and prepare for eventually staying drug-free.
