Where does VODP serve?

VODP Currently has clients in over 100 communities across Alberta.   

The Virtual Opioid Dependency Program can help a person get started on treatment as soon as the same day that they call.  If you have a family doctor or there is a provider in your community, the VODP staff can get you started on treatment and help you connect with care close to home.

Is this just another way to use?

Some people say that you aren't clean on replacement therapy.  This is both dangerous and false.  

Research shows that abstinence in opioid addiction is nearly impossible to maintain without a slip or two along the path to recovery.  Those slips, thanks to the way opioids work are very risky for overdose and death.  On treatment you will quickly start to feel like a normal person again.  Call us for more information.

Suboxone vs. Methadone

Access in Alberta has never been better.  Each client is assessed individually for opioid addiction treatment.  Suboxone, a treatment for opioid addiction, is much safer to start than methadone and is preferred for that and some other reasons.  If you are already on methadone you can continue on that medication.  Please contact the VODP program if you have other questions.
