[Posted: September 22, 2019]

As long-time partners supporting clients living with mental health and addiction concerns, both organizations are closely aligned in services and values. We are confident this decision will ensure long-term sustainability and quality of service.

Our quality of care continues to be our primary focus as we move into this new chapter, and we are committed to making the experience seamless for all parties involved. Over the next several months, more information will be available about the transition.
