York/Adams Drug & Alcohol Commission

Getting help (accessing treatment, case coordination, and resources)

The first step to accessing treatment is obtaining a drug & alcohol assessment.  If you feel that you are in a crisis state or are in need of detoxification, please call the White Deer Run Call Center number listed below. The WDR Call Center has 24/7 coverage and has been designed to expedite detox placement for all funding sources, for all populations.

If you are not in a crisis state (aka in need of emergency detoxification), you may schedule a drug & alcohol assessment through the White Deer Run - York Assessment Center (WDR-YAC). Assessments can be scheduled by calling 717.771.2497. Assessments are free of cost for anyone except for DUI offenders, who may be charged.  For more information, please see the "How to Access Treatment" tab.  If you are in a crisis state, please call the WDR Call Center at 1-866-769-6822.  The Call Center has 24/7 coverage and is designed to expedite detox placement.

YADAC has contracts with 11 detox providers, 27 inpatient treatment providers, 16 half-way house treatment providers, 3 partial hospitalization treatment providers, 6 intensive outpatient providers, 8 outpatient providers and 1 methadone maintenance treatment provider. While these providers are located throughout the state of Pennsylvania, many of the services are available locally.

Treatment services include the case management core functions of screening and level of care assessment, as well as the licensed rehabilitative clinical methodology designed to assist individuals to develop strategic modes to effectively deal with their critical problem of drug and/or alcohol use, abuse, and/or dependence. Furthermore, select YADAC contracted treatment providers are qualified to provide specialty services to the following populations:

• adolescents • pregnant females • veterans • co-occurring • females with children

During the treatment episode, the YADAC contracted treatment providers are also responsible for performing the case management core function of case coordination. Case coordination is the treatment related service activity that involves linking/coordination of support services that will assist the client in meeting other deficiencies inherent in their life, and ultimately aid them in securing recovery and a self-sufficient lifestyle. Linking/coordinating a client to the available support services for the identified non-clinical, treatment-related needs at the provider level and as part of the treatment episode increases the probability that a recovery-oriented, self-sufficient life-style may be initiated during the treatment episode. Therefore, YADAC has contracted with the licensed treatment providers in the York and Adams counties to provide the case coordination of recovery support services in tandem to the licensed clinical methodology in all levels of care.
