Rapid Access Addiction Clinics (RAAC) are specialist medical clinics designed for people who are experiencing health issues related to their drug and/or alcohol use. The clinics are open to people of all ages who are currently using substances, and there is no cost to participate. The RAAC is a short term service and patients are connected back to primary care upon completion of their involvement.
