DTES Connections officially opens in DTES
As part of our commitment to improve access and the quality of care to those in need in the Downtown Eastside, Vancouver Coastal Health announced today the opening of DTES Connections – a new clinic for people with untreated addiction (this clinic will open to the public on March 1, 2017). This initiative is part of the DTES Second Generation Strategy which identified the need for low barrier services that are integrated with other health services.
This new service provides a warm, safe, walk-in environment where individuals can access as many or as few services as they want, seven days a week. This includes relief from withdrawal symptoms or treatment starts.
