As a committee, we have discussed systemic enhancements
to Champlain’s mental health and addictions services that would have
a positive impact on families and their loved ones.
Here are OUR POSITIONS on the following:
Release of information to families
We endorse improving the information made available to families including addressing the Release of Information to Family members as soon as treatment is initiated, and/or on-going attempts as treatment progresses.
Rapid Access Addictions Clinic
We endorse the establishment of the Alcohol Medical Intervention Clinic (AMIC) at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre to provide fast, medically supported withdrawal for people who have been referred by The Ottawa Hospital Emergency Department. We also support the establishment of community Rapid Access Addictions Clinics in Ottawa and across Champlain where clients can self-refer or be referred by a health care provider.
We endorse the installation of the new brain scanner at the Royal Ottawa Hospital. We believe its future benefits will be multifold.
