The Mobile Withdrawal Management Service (MWMS) supports people wanting to detox from a substance they are using. People are referred to this mobile service, which provides medical supports outside of a health facility or treatment centre. The individual must be eighteen (18) years and older and live in Winnipeg, East St. Paul or West St. Paul.
Referrals can be made by any physician or nurse practitioner in our catchment area. For more information, please see our Client Fact Sheet (link at the bottom of this page), or contact the Mobile Withdrawal Management Service general line at 204-784-4094.
The team is made up of registered nurses, health and social services workers, peer support workers, an addiction counsellor, a trauma counsellor, and an addiction physician, who collaborate in daily care provision. The team works seven days a week to support the clients and their families or support persons, with the Klinic crisis line providing after hours support. In addition, all enrolled clients will have access to Elder and Indigenous services.
