Our Services at This Location
Methadone TreatmentMethadone is an opioid agonist blocker and helps to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms when administered therapeutically by a medical professional. The dose is ingested, typically in liquid form, and is tapered off in accordance with cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Suboxone TreatmentSuboxone is a combination of the opioid agonist blocker Buprenorphine, and the overdose medication Naloxone. The medication is dissolved under the tongue and is a very safe option due to its limited effect.
Sublocade TreatmentSublocade is an injectable form of Buprenorphine that releases slowly over a 30-day period. This treatment is ideal for patients that struggle to access daily medication, and should only be administered by a medical professional.
Kadian TreatmentKadian is a form of morphine that is taken orally with an extended release. It is a full opioid agonist blocker and is used for more severe opioid addictions.
Hepatitis C Screening + TreatmentBecause Hep C is a common liver disease among people who inject drugs, we routinely screen our patients and provide additional support for patients who test positive.
Pharmacy ServicesWe operate a network of full-service pharmacies, many of which are co-located with our treatment clinics. These pharmacies ensure seamless access to treatment medication.
Safe Use SuppliesBy providing safe equipment and educational resources to patients, drug-related infections and harm are greatly reduced, and connections to health and social services are increased.
Naloxone KitsNaloxone kits can help someone survive in the event of an overdose while waiting for emergency medical professionals. Anyone who uses or knows someone who uses opioids should carry one. Get them for free at any of our clinics.
