Opioid advice and resources

May 31, 2012

In early March 2012, Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthews convened the “Expert Working Group on Narcotic Addiction,” prior to the removal of oxycontin from Canadian markets.

The Working Group, with assistance from the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) has developed opioid advice resources for healthcare providers, families, consumers and pregnant women. Topics cover opioid:

  • Intoxication
  • Withdrawal
  • Conversion
  • Dependence in pregnant women

These resources are available at, as are links to online certificate training through CAMH, and information about referrals to both CAMH and ConnexOntario.
