AMHO’s Response to the Opioid CrisisOntario’s response to the crisis must focus not only on keeping people alive but on enhancing support and services to assist people in their recovery.
Evidence shows that accessing services and support in the community increases recovery rates for people seeking treatment for opioid use. With input from our members, AMHO initiatives to address the opioid crisis include
- Provide feedback on the implementation of Ontario’s Strategy to Prevent Opioid Addiction and Overdose
- Deliver recommendations for how the province can ensure people have access to the services and support they need to recover
- Support addiction recovery facilities across Ontario with public communication and advocacy
- Promote advocacy and awareness from all Ontarians
