HealthFinders Collaborative (HFC) combines clinical care, community engagement, patient advocacy, and wellness education to fill gaps, improve access, and drive outcomes for underserved populations in Northfield and the surrounding community. Opiate use has been a persistent problem in Rice County, with overdoses going up; this year police have responded to at least 12 overdoses so far. HFC has been a key partner in a countywide effort to address opiate addiction. The project engages law enforcement, social service agencies, and providers across the county to provide coordinated support, and together they have identified the need for medication assisted therapy in Northfield. Medication Assisted Therapy for Opiate Addiction (MAT) can transform care for people addicted to opiates. It involves prescribing a micro-dose of Suboxone, supported by regular and careful clinical monitoring. While the ability for providers to prescribe powerful medications is relatively easy, obtaining certification to provide MAT to support patient’s recovery is a relatively lengthy and involved process for providers. In January, HFC’s director of clinical care and nurse practitioner became credentialed and began offering these services weekly in the Faribault location. The program saw rapid growth and, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, continued to grow unabated. Currently the program has supported the recovery of 25 patients through weekly monitoring and Suboxone prescription. When the program began, there were no providers offering MAT in Northfield, however HFC hired a provider just for this purpose, and is in the process of credentialing another nurse practitioner to expand the program to Northfield. The proposed project hopes to expand to meet the early success and growing needs. Since 2018, HFC has expanded services locally in response to local needs, adding dental care, mental health visits, and now MAT here in Northfield. Together, these services will establish HFC as a comprehensive medical, dental, and wellness home for the underserved population in Northfield and surrounding rural communities.
