Medication Assisted Treatment
Hyde County Health Department (HCHD) provides chronic disease management including the care for opioid and alcohol use disorders using buprenorphine and naltrexone methods as medically indicated. HCHD will follow an Integrated Care Model by incorporating our Primary Care Clinic and Behavioral Health Clinic. We will also take referrals from other Primary Care Providers. All other programs within our agency may refer patients to this clinic.
Purpose of our program:
To reduce morbidity/mortality rates by early detection, treatment, education, and proper referral of clients with certain risk factors and disease processes.
To reduce ED visits and hospital admissions by providing affordable access to care in a setting with reduced stigma.
Services are available to patients regardless of the source of payment. We accept most insurances. Self-pay is also welcomed. In order to be considered for the sliding fee program, uninsured patients should bring their income, family status, and any other circumstances that might affect their eligibility. Financial eligibility is completed annually.
