Rapid Access Addiction Medicine (RAAM) Clinics

Rapid Access Addiction Medicine (RAAM) clinics offer fast access to quality care on a walk-in basis for people living with alcohol and opioid-related addictions. Services include medical treatment and same-day counselling services without a doctor’s referral.

Our RAAM clinics are located at Oshawa Hospital and Pinewood Centre, and are part of a Ontario’s strategy to prevent opioid addiction and overdose. Lakeridge Health is leading the Opioid Strategy Action Group.

We help people with alcohol, opioid or other drug-related addictions by providing:

  • Assessment of substance use disorders and review of treatment options
  • Medications for alcohol and/or opioid use disorders
  • Overdose prevention education and take-home Naloxone kits
  • Referrals to Pinewood Centre addiction services and other services as needed
  • Management of alcohol and opioid withdrawal

RAAM Clinics help manage addictions and offer quick access to quality care, which reduces the impact on the number of opioid overdoses that are being managed in hospital Emergency Departments.
