Original Presentation: March 23, 2021
Opioid use disorder is a complex substance use disorder impacting Newfoundland and Labrador. Access to ODT is limited by stigma, underserved geographical locations, and limited numbers of health care providers. The complexity of treatment needs and the need for integrated system of service delivery have increased the
requirements for ODT services in this province.
This presentation will explore topics related to the new Model for Opioid Dependence Treatment (ODT) for Newfoundland and Labrador. We will discuss the history of ODT in the province, the development of the Hub and Spoke Model, and the implementation process.
