The RAAM Clinic is staffed by a physician and counsellor.
- Counselling: The RAAM Clinic team may refer you to counselling as part of your treatment. Counselling programs can include education on substances and health, group and individual therapy sessions, coping skills training, cognitive behavioural therapy, and peer support groups.
- Medication: Addiction to some substances, such as alcohol or opioids, can be treated with medications that help to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
