Walk-in addictions clinic to open in DTES
A new walk-in clinic for people with opioid addictions and other health issues including HIV and hepatitis C is opening in the Downtown Eastside.
The clinic, called Connections , will be accessible through a door on the alley at an expanded Hope to Health Research Centre at 625 Powell . People will be able to walk into the basement clinic and, without first seeing a doctor, get medication for HIV and hepatitis C, as well as methadone and suboxone for opioid addictions. Take-home naloxone kits for treating overdoses from opioids such as fentanyl will also be available.
