On Sundays from June 26th through September 4th, LCHC Urgent Care will be closed, due to unprecedented staffing challenges.
Addictions (SUD) Treatment
Substance Use Disorder Treatment at Lynn Community Health Center
At LCHC, our staff is trained in the biological and social causes of substance use disorder (SUD), and we rely on the lived experience of our peer recovery coaches and our patients to guide our program development. You will receive respectful, compassionate support for the medical, behavioral (including medication), and social needs that are unique to individuals with SUD.
Services available for patients with SUD & in recovery:
- Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
- Group therapy with your peers
- Individual therapy and behavioral medication as needed
- Support with social needs (housing, etc)
- Peer recovery coaching
Your recovery program will be designed around your unique situation and needs. You are worthy of respect and support on this journey.
For information or to schedule an appointment, please call 781-780-4555.
Medication for Addiction Treatment (MAT)
Medication for Addiction Treatment, or Pharmacotherapy, is the use of medications in combination with other behavioral and support services to provide safe and effective treatment of substance use disorders. There are several different kinds of medications that can be used; your providers will work closely with you to determine the best medication for you.
Needle Exchange and Narcan
Narcan (Naloxone) is a life-saving medication that can reverse an opioid overdose. It is administered as a nasal spray. A community health worker can teach you how to use the Narcan and supply you with a kit (2 doses per kit). It is free and confidential.
Free and confidential needle exchange is available on the Pearl Team. The team offers clean syringes, supplies for safe injection, and access to Narcan.
You do not need to be enrolled in SUD treatment at LCHC to use our Narcan or needle exchange services.
