Health Hub

Health HubThe Health Hub Program helps substance users from Orange and Sullivan counties reduce opioid use, overdose and improve clients’ general health and well being by providing low threshold access to buprenorphine. A Nurse Practitioner and a Registered Nurse will also offer crisis visits, relapse prevention and wound care. We also offer referrals to other services such as HIV, HCV and STD testing, case management, medical, mental health, substance use treatment and other support services.

The Hub operates in our Monticello office and works in tandem with our other substance abuse treatment programs, the Syringe Exchange Program and Project ReachOut.

Buprenorphine–What’s That?

Staff in this program will be able to prescribe Buprenorphine to treat opioid and heroin addiction. It relieves drug cravings without producing the same high as other opioid drugs. The program nurses will also provide relapse interventions and monitor clients so they can access the services they need.
