HCV (Hepatitis-C) is a viral hepatitis which can be cured with a course of oral medication lasting eight to 12 weeks. Every participant who receives a positive HCV antibody test and is interested in receiving treatment is referred to a care navigator in our on-site HCV treatment clinic to discuss what their results mean for them. Often times, confirmatory bloodwork — supported by one of our certified phlebotomists — is the next step to evaluate what type of treatment is best for the participant.
Care navigators support participants along their treatment journey; from debunking treatment myths to facilitating access to other services at PPP and other providers. At PPP, we believe substance use should not be a barrier to receiving life-saving medications such as HCV treatment.
Clinic hours: Monday – Friday, 9 am – 4 pm
