Becoming a patient at Bluewater Methadone Clinic is simple if the following list describes you:

You feel you have an opiate problem. The nature of this problem will be explored during your intake assessment;

You have the ability to attend clinic on a regular basis;

You have the ability to access a pharmacy that will dispense methadone or Suboxone on a daily basis (in the beginning). At your intake appointment we can discuss which pharmacies in your area dispense these medications;

You are willing to comply with the standards and guidelines for opiate replacement therapy (College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario rules) and BMC Patient Policies . See the methadone and buprenorphine tabs. This will be discussed and explained at your intake assessment; and

You have a valid OHIP card.


​​If you fit these requirements and are interested in finding out more about methadone or buprenorphine maintenance you may either call the BMC clinic of your choice or send an e-mail and we will arrange an intake appointment so you can explore treatment with a BMC physician or case manager. The appointment is fully covered by OHIP. The medications are covered by Ontario Drug Benefits (ODB), Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) and most 3rd party insurances.
