The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) launched a new mobile website aimed at improving access for those in need of drug and alcohol addiction help.
“One in four families struggle with a loved one’s addiction and far too often, they feel helpless and they don’t’ know where to turn,” said DDAP Acting Secretary Gary Tennis. “Having a mobile site will provide them with user-friendly access and connect them to the help they need.”
The new site, available at www.ddap.pa.gov/GetHelpNow, replaces and improves upon the ‘Get Help Now’ resources previously available on the DDAP website. The new site is designed to be mobile device-friendly, and uses mapping features to view treatment resources based on a location, place a phone call and look up driving directions, all with a few simple clicks. It also contains resources for gambling addiction and locations of unused prescription drug drop-off sites.
The ‘Get Help Now’ mobile website also features a new section to help users understand treatment options available through their health insurance provider and county drug and alcohol offices.
