Current Projects

Collaborative Care Pilot

SIPCW and the Staten Island PPS are working with two primary care provider practices (one serving adult populations and one serving children) to provide technical, hands-on support to help integrate behavioral health. This upon completion of this pilot, we aim to expand this program to other primary care practices on Staten Island.

Public Health Detailing

This campaign shares resources on opioid use disorder with primary care practices on Staten Island. By educating primary care professionals about treatment resources for opioid use disorder, medication assisted treatment (MAT) and creating linkages to services in the community, these practices are better equipped to serve Staten Islanders.

Emergency Department Warm Handoff Pilot

This six-month pilot seeks to connect patients with substance use needs in the emergency department (ED) to a community treatment provider in a timely fashion. Peers will be present in both Richmond University Medical Center and Staten Island University Hospital, connecting patients in need to the services they need.

Heroin Overdose Prevention & Education (HOPE)
