WHAT'S NEW ON PATHWAYS
Pathways has launched a new feature called Pathways Community Services. This new section features a number of resource areas, with special focus given to addictions, mental health, and seniors services. These resources can help provide support for patients that complement or even reduce the need for other treatment options.
