Adherence Program

Albany Medical Center’s Treatment Adherence Program is available to anyone who is HIV positive, whether they are on medications or contemplating taking medications. Our services are offered through a network of providers in the Capitol District and in the Kingston area at the Mid-Hudson Care Center.

The focus of the Adherence Program is to provide clients with the tools needed to be successful in taking their antiretroviral therapies. Education is provided on HIV disease, the importance of medication adherence, and the use of adherence aids and tools.

Our staff provides counseling over a series of visits, based on the client's needs. Our team includes AIDS Certified registered nurses and peer advocates who work with our case management staff and community case managers to assist clients in overcoming barriers, such as problems with housing, food, insurance, and transportation.

All referrals to our Adherence Program services come from the client's primary medical provider.
