Nurse Practitioner Service

The Nurse Practitioner Service provides innovative and comprehensive addiction and primary care services that support the health and well-being of clients in their recovery journey through inter-professional collaboration, respect and a commitment to excellence.
Primary health care is available through the NP led clinics for clients who do not have access to a family physician in the community. The goal of the clinic is to address the medical needs of individuals with addictions and mental health in conjunction with the care received from the psychiatrist and other team members. Coordinating ongoing care and having people participate more fully in their healthcare are two
important aspects of the clinic.
