About the Clinic

Columbia Street Community Clinic – formerly known as the Portland Clinic before relocating to Columbia Street – has physicians on staff each day, from a team of 13 GPs and addiction specialists.

The clinic provides access to low-barrier primary care services, mental health and addiction treatment services. These include assessment and same-day prescriptions for methadone, Kadian and suboxone, along with various opioid agonist treatment (OAT) options including fentanyl patches and fentanyl powder. We also provide access to lab work, immunizations, monthly Hepatitis C and women’s health clinics, as well as access to various other in-house specialist clinics, including internal medicine and neurology.

New patients welcome

The clinic is currently accepting new patients for full primary and addiction care. Patients may self-refer in person, by phone at 604 879-7906, or by emailing cscc@phs.ca.

Please note we can only accept people who are not currently attached to care. If you have primary care elsewhere, and wish to access programs at PHS, please ask your family doctor to refer you.
