The program includes a weekly group to provide information, education, social support and preparation for the demanding treatment cycle. Treatment has a number of side effects that can be difficult to endure. Clients are assessed as ready for treatment when they have stable housing, financial support, emotional stability and minimal alcohol and substance use. This program also uses a peer model to empower individuals with Hepatitis C. As clients are preparing for treatment, they get a medical workup and are seen by a psychiatrist and infectious disease specialist.

When: Please call reception for hours. If you are interested in receiving treatment for Hepatitis C, or would like more information about the program, please feel free to contact us. We accept referrals from individuals living with Hepatitis C, health care providers and other community agencies.
