Our Drug Treatment Advocate can help connect you to recovery and begin the path to sobriety. If you want to stop the pain and get sober, we will get you access to in-patient or out-patient treatment. For both drug and alcohol abuse.  We can make the process easier by providing:

 Medical Care and Treatment
· Food and Supplements
· Employment Services
· Mental Health Counseling
· Safer Use Practices
· Abscess or Wound Care
· Needle Exchanges
· Overdose Prevention Kits
· Basic Needs or Social Services

 

If you are struggling with addiction MFAP wants to help you. Our Drug User Health Program (D.U.H.) can provide you the tools to make your life better. Together with your case-manger you will have a better understanding of your relationship with drugs and ways to improve your quality of life. You will have the knowledge to get sober or to use drugs safely.  Whichever suits you best we can help you with both.

 

Recovery Can Start NOW!

All of us deserve the same level of treatment  regardless of where we are in life. Just because we struggle with addiction does not mean we shouldn't take steps to better our health or even maintain our HIV status. We all have the right, including drug users, to protect our own health and the health of those around us. D.U.H. will reduce the harm due to unsafe drug use. MFAP can also help you access:
