The Green Line: Substance Use Services at HRRMC

SALIDA, Colo.—HRRMC’s Salida Health Center (SHC) has launched a new substance use services program called The Green Line, now available to community members in our area.

The program provides care and treatment plans to those struggling with substance use disorders, using a harm reduction method that does not require abstinence from substance use. The Green Line offers treatment, support and resources in a judgment-free, confidential space.

Services include daily appointments for addiction treatment (including alcohol, methamphetamine, opioids, crack/cocaine, and heroin); evidence-based medication assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder; peer support; and other resources, such as financial aid, childcare and other community-based necessities one may need. These services are available to anyone, no matter where they are in their life.

The program does specialize in working with individuals who are pregnant or postpartum and using substances. Receiving treatment during pregnancy improves outcomes for both the pregnant person and child. Financial assistance is available through the Integrated Care for Women and Babies (ICWB) grant and can cover prenatal checkups, childcare, transportation to and from appointments and more.

The Green Line medical providers Dr. Vanna Irving, M.D., and Dr. Jenni Adams, D.O., and their teams are passionate about increasing access to health care and addiction treatment without stigma. They see individuals at SHC, located at 550 West Highway 50, in Salida. Clinic hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. To schedule an appointment, or for more information, call (719) 530-2022 or visit In the event of an emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
