We currently operate six licensed Article 28 primary care clinics: three shelter-based clinics and three mobile medical clinics.  The shelter-based clinics serve street homeless individuals; tenants of PRI’s shelters, transitional, and permanent housing facilities; and homeless and low-income men and women referred to PRI by other social service agencies.

Launched in 2007, the Medically Supervised Outpatient Withdrawal (MSOW) program is NYC’s first non-hospital medical detoxification clinic for homeless adults.  Created in collaboration with the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, the New York City Department of Homeless Services, and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, this clinic is a cost-effective means to providing homeless substance abusers with medically supervised detoxification, medical care, and counseling. Individuals are housed and kept safe in a shelter operated by PRI during the withdrawal period.  The goal of MSOW is to interrupt the “revolving door” use of expensive hospital beds for detoxification and to encourage clients to continue substance abuse treatment and sustain rehabilitation.  In FY 2012, MSOW served 524 patients in 796 enrollments.
