The RAAM Clinic is a non-urgent walk-in clinic for patients with a history of alcohol or drug abuse who are motivated to get help. It is designed for patients who are seeking substance abuse treatment for the first time, or those who have recently relapsed and are not connected with any substance abuse treatment service. Patients do not require a referral from a health care provider to come to the Clinic. The only medications that are prescribed are those that treat withdrawal or reduce cravings for the substance used.

Services Offered at the Clinic:

  • Assessment of substance use concerns and review of treatment options
  • Brief individual counseling and psychotherapy
  • Management of acute alcohol and opioid withdrawal
  • Outpatient tapering of patients on opioids or benzodiazepines
  • Medication-assisted treatment of alcohol, opioid and cannabis use disorders
  • Education on overdose prevention and use of naloxone
  • Referral to community supports and treatment programs

You are welcome to attend and/or refer your family and friends.
