Methadone Maintenance Treatment: Community Planning Guide 

The MMT community planning guide is a manual offering guidance to communities across Ontario on how to raise awareness of the benefits of methadone maintenance treatment and how to develop and integrate effective treatment services in their community.

“From the time before the MMT program opened to today, it is the voices of our champions that are being listened to. The difference today is we now hear happy voices, see healthier individuals and families and interact with people who no longer merely exist but enjoy life again.” — MMT program director
