Borough’s first mobile drug treatment unit opens in South Bronx

The nonprofit Acacia Network, its affiliate Promesa Inc. and the State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASES) on Wednesday celebrated the opening of a brand-new Mobile Medication Unit (MMU) that will provide “substance use treatment on wheels.”

The MMU is the first mobile methadone service in the Bronx aimed at finding and treating people addicted to opioids. While another MMU by Bronx-based VIP Community Services opened in November, it does not currently operate in the Bronx.
