COCA’s Drug & Alcohol Update
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Berks County Television (BCTV)
6:00 – 6:30 p.m.
The year is just about over, and with that brings the joys and challenges of the holiday season. Tune in to BCTV to learn about a program that has been developed to help overdose survivors who are in hospital emergency rooms get the help they need to gain immediate access to drug treatment. The program, developed by the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP), is designed to avoid merely giving survivors a phone number to call or setting up a subsequent appointment a day or two later. The handoff of care allows patients and families to hear about treatment options and engages patients and families in communication, giving them the opportunity to ask questions about their care and increase their chances of getting treatment.
