CAHMA - The Treatment Support Service (TSS) provides information on the range of drug treatment services available, and can assist both in making informed treatment choices and in smoothing out problems where they arise with external services.
Through the TSS, we provide education, support and referral to people who are on, or are considering, pharmacotherapy (methadone or buprenorphine) programs, or are looking into accessing detox, rehab, counselling or other support programs.
The support service provides information on the different drug and alcohol programs in the A.C.T., how to access them, and your rights as a treatment consumer.
If you are experiencing difficulties we can advocate on your behalf or liaise with treatment providers, including pharmacies, doctors, and staff at Drug and Alcohol services. If you are unhappy with a decision which has been made about you or your treatment, come see if we can help you sort it out.
