Suboxone is one of the most effective treatment options available for people who would like to stop or reduce their use of heroin, fentanyl, or other opiates. We offer Suboxone treatment to people who are homeless or marginally housed through the Street Medicine team operated by the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program is on hold. We can offer linkage and referral to buprenorphine access points or visit our Tuesday Duboce site in the Castro for onsite care.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Suboxone Lounge has been suspended but we hope to reopen our lounges as soon as possible.
We typically provide referrals and information about Suboxone, methadone, pain management and other treatment options in addition to onsite harm reduction counseling during the lounge.
Although we do not prescribe methadone on site, we can help you find methadone services in San Francisco.
Harm Reduction Center
The Harm Reduction Center is place of welcome and a pathway to improved health and healing. Located in the Tenderloin/SoMa neighborhood, the Harm Reduction Center provides health services, specialized programming, and supplies that help people who inject drugs manage their health and prevent overdose and the transmission of HIV and hepatitis C.
