Adult Outpatient Mental Health Referral Form

The RAAM (Rapid Access Addictions Medicine) Clinic is a clinic for people looking for help with substance use (alcohol and/or other drugs). This service provides assessments and treatment for substance use problems such as alcohol, opioids, cocaine, benzodiazepines and cannabis. Medications may be prescribed for substance use, withdrawal and craving. Referrals for counselling will be offered. Treatment or referrals for any co-occurring psychiatric problem will be provided as necessary.

For opioid use disorders, opioid agonist treatment with methadone and buprenorphine are available. Patients with chronic pain on opioids can be referred and assessed for presence of a possible opioid use disorder. However, if these patients do not have an opioid use disorder, they will not be seen on an ongoing basis and opioid prescriptions will not be provided.
