In addition, we assist with referral to approved residential treatment and detox facilities, hold a weekly Methadone and Suboxone Clinic, offer harm reduction education and supplies, facilitate school based educational programs, community education, and our youth Teen Empowerment and Mastery Program (TEAM).
