Long Island is High-Need and Underserved

Drug overdose and death counts are higher in Long Island than most of New York State. Impoverished residents are often invisible, living in segregated neighborhoods with no transportation or access to services. Pandemic isolation and lack of treatment have multiplied the intersecting risks of mental health, substance use, HIV and HCV, leaving many communities without sustainable pathways to recovery.

Project Safety Net provides navigation services to fast-track people into treatment along with vital follow-up and recovery support. We’re the only mobile organization to offer continuous HIV, HCV, and substance use screening throughout the pandemic.

All our services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL.

Substance Use and HIV Prevention

CONFIDENTIAL    |    ON-LOCATION    |    TREATMENT REFERRAL

Using a mobile outreach approach, our testing and prevention programs aim to reduce the number of new HIV, hep-C and sexually transmitted infections by bringing services to clients on their own turf.

Project Safety Net offers confidential screenings and evidence-based interventions.  We link clients to medical care, counseling, and case management.  We provide fast-tracking for substance abuse treatment and PrEP/PEP referrals.  Our network of providers spans the island.

Recovery Support & Maintenance

SUBSTANCE USE    |    HARM REDUCTION    |     PEER SUPPORT

 

Field-based teams work with individuals seeking substance abuse treatment and with those currently in treatment and in need of HIV/HCV/STI testing, healthcare, and prevention education. Engagement staff collaborate with our agency’s Care Coordinators to provide a continuum of assistance from first encounter to longer-term case management.

Our program is designed to prevent relapse, maintain health, and connect clients to community-level support resources. Evidence-based interventions are employed to create structured long term client engagements. Follow-ups and a warm-handoff help ensure successful linkage to care, treatment, and support. No insurance or fees are required. For anyone 18 years and older who struggles with any type of substance use.
