International symposium on injectable opioid-assisted treatment

The Crosstown Clinic is the only clinic in North American to provide certain opioid-dependent patients with medical heroin and other opioid-replacement therapy.

Crosstown has improved countless lives. In May 2017, health leaders and decision-makers attended a Vancouver-based international symposium on injectables where they learned about other countries that currently provide injectable heroin-assisted treatment.

The event was sponsored in part by Providence and brought together specialists from the United Kingdom, Holland, Germany, Denmark and Switzerland. The experts discussed their countries’ experiences and outcomes, including what worked, what didn’t, and the best way to achieve optimal results for individuals and the overall system.
