Community Opioid Treatment Program

Do you use opioids recreationally?
Are you worried about a friend or family member’s opioid use?
Have you lost control of your opioid use?
Can you no longer function day-to-day without them?

At ASYR we focus on you, not just the addiction. You are bigger than your addiction. You are not defined by your addiction.

Our Opioid Treatment Program works with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs. You are not in this alone: our team of physicians and counsellors are here to help.

Did You Know? Ontario has the highest rate of prescription narcotic use in Canada. The estimated social, economic and health costs to Ontario from untreated opioid use exceeds one billion dollars. (Health Canada, 2002)

What we offer

We support your decision to regain control and can help with:

  • Substitution treatment using Methadone or Suboxone
  • Tapering off the use of Methadone or Suboxone
  • Individualized support and counselling, covering topics like dependence, past abuse and trauma
  • Clinical nursing care
  • Assistance with housing and employment

  • You will speak with a physician who will introduce you to substitution therapy. 
  • You will receive counselling to help understand the medical and psychological factors in your addiction.
