Health Hub from Hudson Valley Community Services (hvcs)

The Health Hub Program helps people who use drugs from Dutchess,  Orange and Sullivan counties reduce opioid use, prevent overdose and improve their general health and well being by providing low threshold access to buprenorphine. We connect clients to medical providers who can also offer crisis visits and relapse prevention. 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.

Syringe Exchange Program via hvcs

HVCS’ Syringe Exchange Program (SEP) uses harm reduction methods to work with people who inject drugs to reduce their risk of contracting HIV, hepatitis C, and other bloodborne diseases. We are non-judgmental and provide a safe, discreet way to meet and offer our services.  The SEP program is FREE and always anonymous. We use a mobile unit (a truck) on a regular schedule to blend into specific neighborhoods but remain accessible.
