Those We Serve

Do you have health concerns related to using drugs or alcohol? Our team will evaluate your needs, help with harm reduction, and/or start treatment that day. From there, we can connect you to more long-term care within Lifespan or with one of our community partners. 


We are dedicated to addressing your physical and emotional needs. We offer medications, counseling and other services to support you as you enter into recovery. Services include:

  • Treatment of any substance use disorder.
  • Medications for addiction treatment, currently including buprenorphine (also called Suboxone, Subutex, or Sublocade) and naltrexone (also called Vivitrol). We expect to offer Methadone dosing in the future.
  • Outpatient management of withdrawal symptoms.
  • Harm reduction services.
  • Referrals to peer support.
  • Referrals to long term addiction care.
  • Assessment of psychosocial needs.
  • Referrals to behavioral health care and social services.
