Addiction is a Chronic Disease.
After tobacco, alcohol is the substance that causes the most harm in Canada. The over-consumption of alcohol can cause chronic diseases such as cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, heart disease and injury or death.
Opioid addiction has been on the rise for years and is an increasing cause of death and suffering across Canada. Luckily, there are also excellent medications to help you get your life back from this devastating disease. We offer methadone and buprenorphine replacement therapy (including once monthly sublocade injections and six month probuphine implants) and slow release oral morphine treatment. We also provide safer use supplies and naloxone kits through PARN.

Palliative care is symptom control management for end of life conditions such as cancer, COPD, Congestive Heart Failure, advanced dementia and neuromuscular disorders such as ALS. It is not just for those right at the end of life, as it has been shown to both improve the quality of life as well as extending life overall.
Dr. Holowaty provides palliative care and medical assistance in dying in the Norwood and Peterborough areas.
Referrals can be sent to Dr. Holowaty's office or Peterborough Hospice.
