How We Can Help

We are committed to providing health care services that are accessible for Aboriginal people. This means paying attention to the barriers that prevent Aboriginal people from accessing other health care services. Therefore we work at recognizing and implementing no-threshold services. We are non-judgemental and commit to care that embraces and welcomes Aboriginal values and culture. This is the first step in opening doors to health for our clients.

The services available are provided by the team so a patient can access health care across a range of options. Clients can see the Addictions counsellor to talk about addictions, or talk to a nurse or a social worker.

We can connect clients with an Elder for traditional healing or a Dr. or Nurse Practitioner for consultation and/or treatment; (eg. methadone maintenance). The clinic can also arrange for clients to consult one of the doctors or the nurse practitioner. We provide education and referral services as well as advocacy, health promotion and self management.

You can come to the CINHS for these services if you are:

  • Aboriginal
  • Youth at risk
  • Living on, or close to the street
  • Or, you fit into one or more of the above, and you are struggling with drugs and/or alcohol.
