Our MWMS services
The MWMS service helps people experiencing withdrawal with support and care – either in their own home, the home of a loved one, or another safe community location. The team of counselors and clinicians can help people with substance use goals as they withdraw from alcohol, drugs, pain medications and other addictive substances.
The Day and Evening Addictions Care Program supports people age 16 or older working toward substance use goals. The program alternates between day or evening offerings and takes place 4 days a week for 4 weeks. You do not have to participated in our MWMS service to join the program.
Call our Barrie clinic as the first step to access these services at 705-721-9554.
Not Our Medicine – Awareness Campaign
Not Our Medicine is an opioid addiction awareness campaign designed for social media, digital platforms and print which raises awareness about opioid addiction and where to get help are key goals of the Indigenous-Led Opioid Strategy (ILOS).
Our goal is to create impactful campaigns that raise awareness about opioid addiction in Indigenous communities and how to get help.
The very first campaign in 2019 included a meaningful collaboration with Indigenous organizations across the region, focusing on the involvement of Simcoe Muskoka youth who created the #NotOurMedicine campaign.
