Addiction Services

Addictions Services is a community-based service which provides education, assessment, counselling and consultation to people with substance use and/or gambling issues, as well as those affected by someone else's alcohol/drug use or gambling behaviours. Services like impaired driving programs, after care, followup, and referrals to other services  are provided to individuals, families and in group settings.

Naloxone (trade name Narcan) can restore breathing in the event of a fentanyl or other opioid overdose. Free Take Home Naloxone Kits are now available to the public in communities across the Province. Kits are for individuals at high risk of overdose (current or previous opioid users) and their friends/family, to administer if overdose occurs.

Contact the HealthLine (call 811) or any Mental Health and Addictions office to access a kit. Instructions on how to use the kit will be provided.

Addiction services has offices in Corner Brook, Stephenville, Deer Lake, Burgeo, Norris Point, Port Saunders, Port aux Basques, and traveling clinics to Cow Head.
