Duffy Health Center Expands Substance Use Disorder Services To Upper Cape

Filed Under: Health Care, Non Profit News

In response to the needs of the Cape Cod community, Duffy Health Center has expanded its substance use disorder services beyond the walls of its clinic at 94 Main St., Hyannis. Three programs are providing services in Falmouth and the Upper Cape for those in need of recovery support.

These programs are no-cost and available to anyone in the community, not just Duffy Health Center patients. The programs include Moms Do Care is a program for pregnant and parenting women with a history of substance use disorder; the RecoveryBuild Alternative Peer Group (APG), a 6-month outpatient treatment program for Cape Cod teens struggling with substance use challenges; and a mobile clinic with the Community Harm Reduction & Treatment (CHART) Team.

Staff and leaders from Duffy Health Center will be at the Gus Canty Community Center in Falmouth on Monday, Nov. 15, from 5 to 7 p.m. to speak with residents about the substance use disorder services being offered to the Upper Cape community.

“The opiate epidemic continues to severely impact our community,” says Heidi Nelson, CEO of Duffy Health Center. “If anything, it has worsened as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful to have wonderful community partners in this work, and we’re excited to offer our services to the Falmouth community.”
