Addiction Treatment

Lowell CHC offers outpatient services for our patients seeking assistance with substance use disorders through our office-based addiction treatment program (OBAT), with an emphasis on both medication-assisted treatment with the medications Suboxone (buprenorphine-naloxone) or Vivitrol (naltrexone).

Our OBAT care team works closely with primary care providers and Behavioral Health Services clinicians in managing the care of each patient. Recovery coaches and social workers are available to assist patients throughout their recovery process. We provide individual and group support as we work to assure integrated services that promote overall wellness throughout the recovery process.

Overdose Prevention

Lowell Community Health Center is committed to overdose prevention in our community. Through our Prevention and Screening Services program (PASS), anyone can obtain nasal naloxone (Narcan, which can help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose) and receive training on overdose prevention at no cost (as we do bill insurance for this service). You do not need to be a patient to access this walk-in service.

Also through PASS, we offer same-day, walk-in services for those seeking screening and treatment for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis, and screening for HIV and Hepatitis C, it is available to all- regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Partner services and treatment are also available.

Narcan is also available for purchase in our pharmacy. You do not need a prescription. To reach the pharmacy, call 978.221.6899.
