New Tool in Bensalem Township for People Dealing with Substance Use Disorder

A One-Of-A-Kind Partnership in Pennsylvania

Thanks to a one-of-a-kind partnership between Gaudenzia, the Bensalem Police Department, and the Bucks County Drug & Alcohol Commission, Inc., anyone who wants to begin their journey of recovery from drugs and alcohol may go to the Bensalem Police Station for an immediate assessment. This assessment is being done by videoconferencing with Gaudenzia’s assessment unit to determine the level of care needed. Once determined, the assessor secures a place for them in an appropriate treatment facility. This partnership is the first of its kind in Pennsylvania. It makes the crucial link between treatment and the moment of clarity of the person suffering from substance use disorder.
