Support & Intervention
Support services empower individuals through education on addiction and enabling; creating teams that work towards maintaining a common goal (attending treatment, maintaining sobriety, etc.), and improving public understanding of addiction and recovery, including eliminating stigma and discrimination faced by those with substance abuse disorders. The Dauphin SCA also subcontracts with local entities for emergency housing services requiring those who receive funding for these services to obtain a licensed treatment evaluation and follow through with the recommendations.
Intervention services serve the purpose of identifying an individual abusing alcohol and/or drugs and support his/her entry into treatment. Intervention services may also identify early signs of substance abuse problems/issues and halt its progression or use a crisis as a way to engage an individual in treatment.
