Welcome to our META:PHI blog, which aims to provide insight into the evolving issues of substance use and treatment in Ontario.

META:PHI is excited to be able to shine a light into the important matters that practitioners across Ontario face when caring for patients in RAAM clinics and other settings.

We also welcome any suggestions for topics or issues related to substance use and treatment.
