Harbor Community Health Centers

County: Los Angeles

Project Year: YOR III Project (2022-2024)

Project Name: Adolescent and Early Adult Addiction/Recovery Program

Description:

Harbor Community Health Centers (HCHC) will expand its existing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services to include an Adolescent and Early Adult Addiction/Recovery program. This program will strengthen HCHC’s capacity and increase access to treatment for a broad spectrum of substance use disorders, including opioid use disorders and stimulant use disorders, especially among Latinx youth and young adults experiencing homelessness in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County.

Project activities focus on comprehensive, age-appropriate interventions, including screening and referral to treatment with general and specialty care providers. Additional activities include case management and outreach, peer support, prevention, and supportive services. Our goal is to better address the specific needs of youth and young adults and diversify the range of health care settings that can serve as an access point for youth to receive evidence-based treatment.
