Our on-site pharmacy fills both internal and external prescriptions, as well as provides medication for uninsured individuals regardless of ability to pay.

Our pharmacy team helps clients understand their medications as well as offers a discussion about reducing barriers to medication adherence. Additionally, our pharmacists work closely with the client to explore their options for filling prescriptions and to design a care plan that is tailored to the client’s needs.

Medication Refills

Please be aware that our pharmacy requires a 24-hour notice to refill medications. Although we make every attempt to complete medication refills the day of your request, we cannot guarantee this. The number of refills given to you by your physician is usually sufficient to last until your next appointment and refills may not be authorized without proper follow-up.

Please call 505-767-1130 for all medication refills.

Supportive Social Services

Our team works throughout AHCH to offer support in accessing services and advocating for the individual. We also have more intensive case management available for people with severe mental health and/or substance use disorders. Our social service team works throughout our health center, integrating throughout our teams, from community health workers to public benefits specialists to clinical social workers. Teams work to provide wrap-around supportive services to our clients through outreach, provider visits, or resource center drop-ins.

Case Management

Case Managers assist clients with a variety of tasks including: finding housing, applying for benefits, building skills for activities of daily living (cooking, cleaning, paying bills, etc.), and identify other resources as needed. The goal of the case management program is to assist in housing and maintaining that housing within the broader community.

Housing Navigation

At AHCH, we built our housing program around the Housing First model. We believe that housing is a human right and that it is an essential health care service. Without housing, individuals are exposed to unsafe and traumatizing conditions that seriously impact their health and impede any progress towards their personal goals. Therefore, we provide no-barrier housing navigation services to any and all individuals who seek it. We also provide case management through to support individuals in housing programs. Out of the 167 people we helped house in 2023, over 4 out of 5, remain housed after a year, and continue to work with our housing program. But it’s not enough. We continue to strive to expand and advocate for equitable housing opportunities to prevent and reduce homelessness.

Outreach

Integrated Health Outreach

Health care and housing are key components in AHCH’s strategy to end homelessness and street medicine is an essential element of the national Health Care for the Homeless model. By allocating resources to mobile integrated care and client engagement, AHCH providers reach people experiencing homelessness across Bernalillo County who face significant barriers to accessing high-quality health care. AHCH meets client needs by staffing interdisciplinary teams, pairing medical and social service professionals who are skilled at engaging with clients experiencing homelessness and knowledgeable about our philosophies of care.

AHCH Integrated Health Care providers are adept at assessing and treating a wide range of patient concerns in outreach settings. Clinical focus areas on outreach include wound care, dermatitis, diabetes, hypertension, medication-assisted opioid addiction treatment, asthma, and COPD. In addition to primary care, our outreach teams mirror our on-campus patient-centered health home by integrating dental, psychiatric, and social service professionals.

Harm Reduction

The Harm Reduction Outreach Program provides a variety of services to persons experiencing homelessness, substance use disorders and individuals seeking general services including referral to medical, housing, food and clothing. Services are provided by certified Harm Reduction Specialists at the AHCH campus and at multiple outreach sites that also provide services and care to people who are experiencing homelessness. The program functions using an integrative model in conjunction with the AHCH medical, dental, social services and case management programs.

Resource Center

The Resource Center is a bright, airy community space that supports our clients’ more immediate needs like a shower, an ID, basic hygiene and survival items, and referrals for shelter. It also is a centralized hub that can connect our clients to our other health care services, public benefits, case management, as well as other community partners and local resources to help clients navigate and problem solve their other needs.

This year, we connected over 2,000 individuals to motel and ID vouchers to reduce the burden of homelessness. Our Resource Center not only provides a space to rest and commune, but also is a point of entry for clients to gain access our other health care services such as behavioral health therapy, primary health care and dental care.

Clients can access AHCH therapy services with a therapy referral from any AHCH provider. Walk-In therapy and crisis intervention services are also available during our regular business hours, with no appointment needed.
