Opioid Management Clinic
Orticare is proud to announce the establishment of its Opioid Management Clinic (OMC) in Ballarat, serving the Grampians Loddon Mallee region.
Our clinic is dedicated to providing expert guidance for patients facing opioid dependence, including those with chronic pain conditions.
Our specialist team can assist in cases where pharmacotherapy may be a suitable option, as well as providing support for patients with multiple concerns regarding their
alcohol or drug use, and medical withdrawal.
Dr. Adam Straub, Addiction Medicine Specialist and Senior Medical Registrar at Ballarat Health Services, graduated from The University of Melbourne in 2008 and focused his early career in critical care medicine. After working with Victoria Police and spending many years working in Emergency Departments, Adam developed a great interest in Addiction Medicine, identifying a patient group that would benefit from a more comprehensive model of care. Through this, Adam is able to interact with a broad patient group and support their care throughout the hospital.
We welcome referrals from General Practitioners (GPs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), and other medical practitioners (OMPs) for Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) purposes.
There is no cost to the patient for our services.
Our consultations can be conducted either in person, through video conferencing, or by phone and secondary consultations are available by appointment only.
For complex cases, we also offer multidisciplinary case conferencing upon request.
