Hepatitis C Linkage to Care/Wellness Program
Living with Hepatitis C? Did you know there is a cure? We work with syringe access services and help people who inject drugs get connected to medical care for Hepatitis C and provide support over the 8-12 weeks of treatment. We offer help with transportation, ID assistance, appointment reminders, medical visit support, substance use counseling (harm reduction style), harm reduction supplies + groups, community support & incentives. Incentives support you to get treated.
Contact our Hepatitis C Wellness Coordinators to enroll:
Or drop by the 6th Street Harm Reduction Center to enroll Tuesday-Friday, 11am–1pm. 117 6th Street @ Mission. [map]
All of the doctors our program works with are nonjudgmental about drug use and are committed to providing quality care to folks. There is no requirement to be sober. If you'd like to make adjustments to how drugs are fitting in your world to get ready for 8-12 weeks of treatment, we can connect you with harm reduction counseling. All goals (safer use, managed use, reduced use, planned use, abstinence, methadone, suboxone treatment) respected and supported.
