Rapid Access to Addiction Medicine (RAAM) Clinic

Program Overview

The Rapid Access to Addiction Medicine (RAAM) clinic is a partnership between Battlefords Family Health Centre and Saskatchewan Health Authority to provide a team-based addiction service offering counselling, case management, and medical treatment and support for substance use and substance based addiction.  The long-term goal of the program is to create healthy living within a process where the client actively participates.

The RAAM Clinic will provide timely access to people looking to make changes in their substance use and addictions. Care will be provided by a multi-disciplinary team who will work with each person to create a care plan to help them meet their needs and goals. Specific Services include:

  • assessment of substance use disorders;
  • providing trauma-informed short-term counselling around substance use;
  • treatments for opioid use disorder including Methadone, Suboxone, or Sublocade (Opioid Addiction Recovery Services Clinic - OARS)
  • anti-craving medications for alcohol use disorder;
  • connecting individuals to the right community partners for substance use, and social support services;
  • assistance in transitioning care back to primary care providers;
  • connecting individuals to a primary care provider if required;
  • providing training around safe consumption and overdose prevention; and
  • providing take-home Naloxone kits.

New patients or transfers can be done through your current physician, through a counsellor or addictions worker, or on your own.
