Suboxone: An alternative to methadone for treatment of opioid dependence

On February 4, 2013, interested stakeholders learned about the use of suboxone as an alternative to methadone in the treatment of opioid dependence. Dr. Curtis Handford, from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, led a webinar that explored guidelines for the use of suboxone. The webinar also looked at a high school‐based detoxification pilot program in Thunder Bay.

Co-presenters included Mae Katt (Nurse Practitioner) and Colleen McCreery (School Nurse), both from Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School in Thunder Bay.
