Positive Health and Substance Abuse Treatment (PHAST)

A substance use disorder treatment and HIV care project for the diverse population of San Francisco.

The Substance Abuse and HIV Integrated Services project is designed to increase access to integrated substance use disorder treatment and HIV care, for populations who are underserved and living in the Tenderloin and surrounding neighborhoods in San Francisco. This project serves adults ages with a focus on men who have sex with men and transgender populations. This project offers a one-stop shop model for substance use disorder and co-occurring disorder treatment along with HIV care, and linkage to primary medical, for those needing any or all of these services. Primary care services are offered in collaboration with Asian Pacific Islander Wellness Center's Specialty Clinic and Tenderloin Area Center of Excellence Health Clinic. Services offered include brief substance use disorder treatment and HIV case management support services that can range up to 6 months, depending on client needs.

This project is funded by SAMHSA/CSAT: Targeted-Capacity-Expansion Initiative, for a five-year period starting in October 2012.
