Clinic status starting 3/26/20

For the safety of our staff and patients, we have worked diligently to create safe and confidential digital services by phone and telehealth to our patients.  To the extent possible, Quest Center remains open and no services have been eliminated.  We will continue intakes, assessments, behavioral health sessions, peer support and mentoring, case management, medication management, and addiction and pain management services.  In the next week, we will continue group sessions and workshops by video/telehealth via Zoom and other services.  

To the best of our abilities, Quest Center will continue to provide services to our clients while working within the necessary limitations of the protective measures being taken by state and local governments.  Although Quest Center’s locations will remain physically closed for the foreseeable future we are continuing to accept new clients into all of our programming. 

As we move through this new landscape of service delivery, we remain committed to our mission of compassionate trauma recovery and to provide integrative healthcare services, community, and education to all people seeking a wellness-focused approach to living and dying. 

In health and wellness, 
David Eisen, Executive Director

In solidarity, 
Lou Stagnitto, Board Chair

Our Deep Purpose

The world is a scarier, more uncertain place than usual. Quarantines, economic instability and political strife seem to be the new normal. Never before has the work of community-led nonprofits - promoting grassroots leadership, lifting up women's voices, providing access to the underserved, and otherwise creating resiliency - been more critical to creating a just, healthy and equitable society. And while corona concerns have us steering clear of one another, our collective work is a lynchpin that brings us closer together.
