PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Department of Health announced a new mobile medical unit Sunday to help fight the opioid crisis.

The medical unit belongs to the Codac Behavioral Healthcare and is available to Rhode Islanders every day.

The Department of Health said “You can access medications for opioid use disorder, counseling services, general health checks, and more,” in a Facebook post.

From Monday to Saturday the mobile unit will be located at 800 Clinton Street in Woonsocket from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. That time slot will be dedicated to dosing hours.

However, residents can also go to get blood pressure screenings, glucose readings, and mental health screenings.
