Bridge Clinic Now Open!

The open access Bridge Clinic is now open for walk-in assistance to get medications to treat substance use disorders and assist with overdose prevention. Examples of medications that can be prescribed include: Suboxone, Antabuse, Naltrexone and Narcan. Services are provided by LIVIO Health Group and include a Doctor of Nurse Practitioner (DNP), a Community Health Worker and a Medical Assistant. Services also include medical screening and (non-complicated) medical interventions.

If possible, arrive earlier in the afternoon to ensure the best service. If everyone arrives just prior to closing, time with providers may be reduced.

Bridge Clinic location is 7766 NE Hwy 65 in Spring Lake Park. Once you enter the building, go to the suite on the right.
