Opioid Agonist Therapy (OAT) Clinic
The Opioid Agonist Therapy (OAT) Clinic at Alouette Addictions Services in Maple Ridge provides methadone and suboxone treatment. We have two physicians on site and both are accepting patients. The doctors are here weekly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and there is no referral required to access this service.
What You Can Expect
Alouette Addictions Services staff are committed to providing a safe, welcoming, and professional environment.
Clients are asked to call the office to book a doctor’s appointment. Their first visit will involve a small amount of paperwork and a meeting with the physician where a prescription will be given that can be filled at a pharmacy of choice. Patients will book follow up appointments to see their physician on a regular basis.
Dr. Sharon Vipler, Fraser Health’s division lead for addiction medicine said “By providing effective and accessible treatment, we can help people along their journey to better health and well-being.” We are committed to being your partner in pursuing a healthy and happy lifestyle.
