Update for The Council of Southeast PA/PRO-ACT Recovery Community Center Programming
Our staff has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and has been following what our respective State and County leadership and health authorities are advising. We are actively preparing plans and responses to keep our staff and participants safe and prevent community spread within the region, and effective Monday, March 16th, we will be implementing the following changes:
We will be closing our sites to in person client services, and our staff will be working remotely to continue to connect those we serve to the resources needed, and providing telephonic case management, recovery support services and other services. We will be ceasing in person meetings, excluding emergency situations. At this time, our hospital-based staff in the BCARES and ROSE programs will continue to work their scheduled shifts in the hospitals. Our PAD program has suspended diversions, but will be available on-call for emergencies. Call 215.345.6644 to schedule telephonic support or other services. As always, the Information Line is a resource that can help answer your questions concerning alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs; and provide information, support, referrals and advocacy.
