Drop in sessions are held on the fourth Monday of each month between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Community Health Center. However, individuals can stop in at any time if they are in need of help or assistance.

ways to get help

Getting help is as simple as walking through the door. Whether you or someone you know is struggling with addiction or a substance use disorder, the first step is simply showing up. From there, you will get connected with a Central Virginia Hope Initiative Angel and Navigator—both of whom will walk you through your next steps.

Next steps could include a screening, emergency treatment or a referral to a program that is right for you.

how we can help

If you’re interested in recovery from the following addictions or substance uses, we are here to help:

  • Opiates
  • Methamphetamines
  • Alcohol

At Central Virginia Hope Initiative, we are interested in treatment and support, not judgement or condemnation. That’s why anyone who drops in also has the opportunity to surrender their drugs, alcohol or paraphernalia with no consequence to them. Our goal is that you get help and only help.
