Recovery Ottawa West’s primary mandate is to provide treatment for addiction to opioids (heroin and other morphine derivatives, synthetic prescription painkillers like codeine, oxycodone, heroin, and fentanyl). At Recovery Ottawa West, we believe in treating the whole person. Our program includes a physical examination, testing, treatment, and counselling.
Our support team includes addiction physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and qualified addiction support workers. All of our staff are committed to treating our clients with the compassion, courtesy, and respect that they deserve.
Treatment protocols will vary depending on the patient’s physical health and the type of substance abuse. After the physician has prescribed a treatment protocol, patients will have an immediate consultation with the pharmacist. In most cases, the pharmacist can start dispensing treatment immediately.
