Often there are both mental health and addition issues for your patients. It can sometimes be difficult to know to which part of the service to refer. Our staff in Mental Health and Addiction Services work together to ensure that support and treatment are seamless and that ‘any door is the right door’. When the treatment indicates, clinicians from both parts of the service collaborate in client care
