November 1, 2017, Central Outreach Wellness Center launched its Hepatitis C & HIV Outreach Testing Program in the Addiction Recovery Community!
Since then, we have tested over 3,500 people in clinics all over Pennsylvania, and cured over 1,200 people of the Hep C!!!!
Our team travels around western Pennsylvania doing “RAPID”, (just a finger-prick) Hep C & HIV testing at Methadone, Suboxone, Pain Management, In/Outpatient Rehabilitation Centers, Transitional Housing, addiction community events and other clinics/organizations of addiction recovery community!. If someone is found to be Hep C positive, we invite them into one of our clinics (North Shore or Washington, Pa) to get the FREE Hep C cure!
Our team specializes in meeting people where they are & teaching risk-reduction techniques so they do not re-infect themselves or others. We also customize specific treatment plans that fit everyone’s lifestyle and schedule!
If you, or anyone you know, has Hep C, think they may be positive, or are unsure of their Hep C status, give us a call or stop on by any one of our office for FREE Hep C screening! Always know your status!
