Under the direction of registered psychologist, Zach Walsh, Associate Professor, Psychology, the clinic is offering a problematic substance use clinic for anyone who feels they may need help with their use of alcohol or other drugs.
The clinic is a low-barrier outpatient treatment service for people seeking help to reduce harm associated with their use of alcohol or other substances, explains Walsh, an expert in the field of addictions.
“The clinic will fill a crucial gap in the community for people who want to cut down or quit their use of alcohol and other drugs, but who don’t feel they are a good match for residential treatment or inpatient detox,” says Walsh. “We will be using state-of-the-art treatments to address alcohol and drug problems from a harm-reduction perspective.”
