With $26,550 in funding from the Telligen Community Initiative, ASAC will be making improvements to our two on-site medical clinics; one is located on our main campus for our adult and youth residential clients and the other at Heart of Iowa for the moms and their children. The grant funding makes possible the purchase of new medical equipment and supplies plus technology upgrades for the two medical exam rooms.
Upon program entry, each new residential client and each child accompanying their mom to Heart of Iowa receives an initial physical by our medical director, Dr. Michael Simison. With us now providing medication assisted treatment, Dr. Simison will be spending additional time in our medical exam rooms monitoring those clients receiving medications to help in their recovery from opioid addictions.
ASAC is very appreciative of Telligen Community Initiative’s financial support.
